3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I was really excited to try this one since I look forward to the release of pumpkin beers each fall. The beer pours a orangish-brown color with a white head. The aroma is classic pumpkin ale, with lots of pumpkin and nutmeg notes. The flavor is more of the same. I get a ton of pumpkin, along with the classic pumpkin pie spices of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. I also get some caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not quite as good as Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin or ST Pumpking, but a step above most of the pumpkin ales that are on the market. I’m liking this Autumn Pack so far from SA.

(12oz bottle) Pours a clear deep amber-orange body with a medium cream head. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, whip cream, and caramel. Flavor of pumpkin, caramel, cinnamon, toasted pie crust, vanilla, and nutmeg.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a brilliantly clear, deep red, almost brown. Thin white head that fades quickly to a light ring leaving no lacing. Aroma is wonderful. Pumpkin pie spices- cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, with a nice bready background. Body is a little thin, with very light carbonation. Flavor is not nearly as pronounced as the aroma, but still very nice. Tasty beer, just wish it was a little more spicy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate cinnamon, nutmeg, and a touch of apple. It pours a transparent amber with a small beige head that quickly fades to thick ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate brown sugar, grain, and a touch of apple. The finish has light-moderate cinnamon and ginger. Light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, too heavy on the brown sugar and the light apple flavors are really out of place.

Most sam Adams beers are middle of the road, inside the box type, and this is not too different, but still one of the better pumpkin beers I’ve had.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. I enjoyed this pumpkin as a sample. Aroma is clear pumpkin, but natural and not overpowering. Beer looks and pours nice with a deep amber and full head. More spice comes out in the taste and a nice amount lingers in the finish. Would recommend as a good choice in the pumpkin category.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, notched "enjoy before FEB." Pours ruby red and dark orange with a small foamy tan head. Aromas of spicy cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, brown sugar, and dough. The flavor is spices and sugar, alcohol, and some buttered dough. Medium carbonation and a bit thin. Alright.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours from the 12 oz. bottle a reddish brown color with a 1/2 finger off-white head that vanished almost as soon as I was finished pouring. The carbonation is very light, I can practically count the bubbles on one hand. Aroma is of spice and a light caramel note. 1st sip brings a note of spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice) with a slight hint of caramel and a rich background of pumpkin. This is the closest to the "pumpkin pie in a glass" cliche that I have ever come across. The mouthfeel is medium bodied. Overall, an Ok beer, but not something I would seek out again.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a deep red with a medium head that lingers for awhile. The taste is slightly thin and watery with the spices and pumpkin flavors coming through in the aftertaste. OK, but not great.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Darker amber color with a tan head. Aroma of pumpkin and spices, but are mild. CO2 is apparent. Pumpkin flavor and spices, medium sweet. Nutmeg, not bad.
