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.

bottle - Pours a clear amber/red with a smallish head. Aromas of pumpkin and caramel. Nice balance flavors of pumpkin, bread, and some spices. The more I drink, the less I like it.

Pumpkin taste dominates, little to no head. Sweet with a dry finish, not refreshing.

Clear dark mapley amber. Quick dissipating fizzy head. Fairly spiced, didn’t find it overboard. Some nice enough pumpkin. Caramel. Toasty. Lighter bodied. A bit watery. Not overly sweet. Not much on the palate. Good drinkability. A very approachable but rather uninteresting pumpkin brew compared to what else is out there.

Hmm, Pumpkin Pie in a bottle. Malty, sweet, nutmeg, clove, etc. A pleasant and unique treat, but not something I would drink often.

Nice nutmeg and clove on the nose. Appearance is a clear amber with an off white head with ok head retention. Spices are subdued and balanced. Malt is biscuity with a light roast. Hop bitterness is just enough to balance the malt. Mouthfeel is medium-light with medium carbonation. Overall, it's a balance pumpkin ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The more Sam Adams beers I drink, the less I like them. This one was no exception, tons of spice in the aroma and extremely sweet taste. Not my cup of tea.

Transfer from BA review on 9-30-12- Poured from a bottle into Sam Adam’s perfect pint glass Appearance – Pours a brownish red colored brew with a thick two finger off-white head. The head has a very nice level of retention but fades over time to leave a light level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of pumpkin and spices of nutmeg, clove and cinnamon. With these pumpkin pie aromas is a good dose of caramel and some notes of a brown sugar nature. Taste – The taste begins of pumpkin and a bready taste. There is a light caramel and brown sugar sweetness that persists till the middle of the taste. With the sweetness some of the pumpkin pie spices begin to get stronger as well. In the end some roastier and more pumpkin coming to the tongue which in the end when combined with the sweet leave a pleasant roasted pumpkin pie flavor on the tongue.. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the creamier and smoother side with a carbonation level that is rather average. The creamy body is quite nice of the roasted pumpkin and spice flavors with the smoothness of the brew giving it a very satisfying feeling on the tongue. Overall – Not a bad pumpkin brew. It is on the roastier side more toward the end of the taste but it has a nice level of sweetness to balance the pumpkin and spice. It has a very nice mouthfeel and is quite easy to drink. Not too shabby.

Its body has a very nice deep reddish amber color with very clarity. From the pour it makes a good inch of creamy off white foam. It quickly settles down to thin covering that just hangs on to the last sip with the help of a few quick swirls. At the top of the glass it leaves some cool lace patterns. The aroma has mostly cinnamon notes with some other pie spices over rich dark bready and pie crust like malts. There is a pleasant cinnamon and pie spice character with mild bitterness though out. Pumpkin or squash like flavor is very light but it is there and it is supported buy sweet bready and toasty pie crust like malty flavor notes. The finish is fairly quick with mild bitterness and spice.
