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.

Second week of NFL 2011 and cooler weather made this a favorable choice. Dark red, medium bodied pumpkin ale complimented with roasted malts. Sam Adams figures out a way to deliver a desirable Fall Seasonal.

Bottle poured into tasting glass. Burnt orange amber color, clear, minimal head. Nice aroma of classic pumpkin scents...nutmeg, pie crust, brown sugar, hint of ginger. Taste is pleasant and more of the same plus clove and a hint of boozey warmth. A little thin bodied, but good work overall by Sam Adams. Wish it was available in 6-packs.

12oz bottle from the Harvest vareity pack. Pours a deep mohagany brown and chocolate. Solid head, fluffy and steady and dissapates to nothing after a few minutes. Taste is pumpkin spice, malty and sweet. A great beer for the season. Wonderfully crafted and very harvest like with the color and taste. A nice sipper

smaynard6000 (803) - Apopka, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Bottle. Pours a reddish brown with minimal head. Aroma and flavor are both dominated by pumpkin. Unfortunately, pumpkin isn’t one of my favorite flavors. Probably well executed even though this isn’t my cup of tea.

BillWyce (844) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2011
From notes: Poured reddish-orange with a very slight haze and a disappearing head. Aroma was reminiscent of pumpkin pie- starts out with pumpkin meat, giving way to caramelly and roasty notes with a lingering breadiness. Medium-bodied, but a nice depth of flavor. Flavor was again pleasantly reminiscent of pumpkin pie, with pumpkin meat mixed with a nice spice note.

12oz bottle poured into snifter. I love pumpkin beers and drinking them during a nice cold front but this was a just an utter disgrace. It was like they took the Octoberfest beer and just sprinkled some pumpkin spice on top. Not enough pumpkin flavor or aroma. Took a few sips and dumped it.
