COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A perennial favorite at our Brewery Halloween party, this reddish amber ale is perfect for fall. Real pumpkin adds a full body and sweetness, while deep roasted malts lend a toasty finish to this subtly spiced brew.

PorterPounder (5339) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - 12 oz bottle - part of their Harvest Variety pak. Bonus - bought the 12’er for the rauch - thought I had rated this! Deep dark copper pour, thin, but long lasting khaki colored head - not much lacing. Very aromatic spicy aroma with hints of pumpkin spice and vanilla. Flavor has the same pumpkin spice theme to it with some underlying toffee and vanilla. Tends to turn a bit too sweet near the end of the bottle - but not to the point of cloying . Decently thick mouthfeel.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2011
8/22/11. 12oz bottle. Clear amber pour with a small tan head that fades to a film fast and barely laces. Mild pumpkin spice aroma with a touch of that squashiness and definite caramel malts. Actually a decent pumpkin flavor with a subtle but spice presence. I’m not gonna lie... I kinda like this one.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 20, 2011
Dark orange, almost brown. Loose foamy head. Smells like cinnamon and nutmeg at first. Perhaps a little like pecan pie. Flavor is nicely spicy, but not overbearing - cinnamon and nutmeg again, plus allspice. Not bad, actually.

Dark brownish/red color with a small head. Strong aroma of allspice and nutmeg. Moderate pumpkin flavor. Plenty of spice, mostly nutmeg. Surprisingly very good.

CharmCityCrab (148) - Maryland, USA - AUG 5, 2011
Dark brown red pour with an aroma of Halloween spices and a rich taste featuring burnt pumpkin, spices, and maltiness, Harvest Pumpkin Ale seems to improve every time I drink it. I think the "burned" part of the taste profile took me aback the first time I had it in it’s inaugural season, but revisiting it after a year, knowing what to expect, this beer strikes me as being a much stronger offering. Neither weak on the pumpkin or the beer, it delivers. Possibly a slightly reformulation for the better in 2011? You won’t be blown away by this, but I predict it’ll be one of your favorites from Sam’s fall mix pack -- not quite up there with the SA Octoberfest, but, what is, really?

HonkeyBra (3235) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2011
12 oz. bottle in the Sam Adams glass. Deep amber pour with a medium off white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spice, mild sweet fruit, cinamon, pumpkin sweetness. Flavor is mildly sweet, typical pumpkin beer spice, some roastiness. Medium mouthfeel. Not the best example of a pumpkin beer.

So, I’m trying to do something unnatural, and they don’t really understand it, but they’re very upset about it. .. Pours a dark fried chicken brown, with a medium head, lacing is quite impressive too .. . hmm, nice spice aroma, touch of pumpkin and sweet potato .. . pretty good and one of the top pumpkin brews i’ve had.. . And you’re trying to keep them from doing what’s natural, which is just letting gravity bring them to the ground, which they’ve had more experience with. It’s a triumph, and I’m done with them.
You know, we’re not getting along.
We’re basically fighting, and the fight is over.
Now get out of here.
