3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle- Is it fall already? Pours ruby red to amber with a thin yet frothy white to tan head, aroma is pumpkin and spice, and not some fake pumpkin immitation, this smells like a homemade pumpkin pie. The taste is not as good as the aroma, but still a solid offering, pumpkin flavor and subtle spices. In my opinion a little over carbonated, but thats getting picky, this is a great beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Maybe one of the better SA offerings that I have had in a while. Very restrained with the spices and pumpkin, though, like the Irish Red, it becomes a bit cloying towards the end.

Aroma: faint caramel and spice notes. Appearance: clear orange/brown. Taste: malty with pronounced spice characteristics. Palate: medium body and carbonation. Overall: not bad for what it is, but spice beers really arent my thing.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a large frothy beige head that leaves good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a strong cinnamon and pumpkin. Thin mouthfeel with a spicy malt and cinnamon with a spicy finish. Easy to drink, a good spice brew from Sam Adams.

Pours reddish amber, medium-to-large head, Aroma is pumpkin, all-spice, and a slight rye note. Flavor is very balanced and dry, very light fruit wit medium spicing and a good caramel backbone. A very good pumpkin ale, much better than expected.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a clear reddish-amber with a thin off-white head that fades quickly. Sweet candy aroma with some pumpkin and coriander. Taste is slightly bitter with caramel malts. Vegetable flavors accompany a sweet pumpkin taste. Slightly light bodied. The finish is bitter and fades quickly. Pretty good overall, I enjoyed this one. Thanks to Arone12 for the trade.
