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.

Pours a beautiful reddish copper with a small light tan head. Nose is spices. Creamy on the palate, the pumpkin taste hits the taste buds upon first sip, followed by a mild maltiness and then a slight hint of hops. Very well balanced taste profile and not overly sweet. Pairs well with nuts or Chex mix.

Bottle. All the hype is because you can only get it in the fall mixer. Good but not mind-blowing. Poured a darker amber/orange color with a small white head. Aroma was spices, cloves, and cinnamon. Flavor was weaker pumpkin and spices. Good for the season, wouldnít want to have a lot of these at one time though.

A decent pumpkin beer - better than most, actually. Itís very rich, sweet, and malty, with very little hop balance. I would have preferred more of a clear pumpkin flavor, but itís still a good addition to their fall mix pack.

Was good, but not as good as I had hoped for, and thinking back on it now, it really was not that good. Looking forward to re-rating this one soon.

Pours a copper color with small tan head, and had some good lacing. Aroma is nutmeg, spices, vanilla and some malt. I like the mild flavoring of " Harvest Pumpkin Ale". The spices, nuts and the generous malty flavor where not as "overpowering as some of the other pumpkin ales Iíve had. Finish is little dry with some lingering spices.

Beautiful deep amber body with a lasting beige head. Wonderfully inviting aroma of fresh baked pumpkin pie. Neither the pumpkin nor spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves) are overpowering...they just meld perfectly. Smooth, deep palate with moderate carbonation. The flavor is as good as the aroma. Only a slight pumpkin flavor, but enough to make you know itís there. The warm spices finish it off. Pumpkin pie in a bottle. Wow. I wish Sam Adams offered it in 6 or 12 packs!

The aroma is pumpkin pie spices, toasted malts, caramel. The color is a deep amber/brown, off-white head. The flavor is pumpkin, spices, caramel, brown sugar. Medium in body, thicker than expected, fairly creamy. The finish is spicy, some resiny hops. Nothing outstanding, but really not bad. Quite drinkable.

Bottle pours clear amber red color with off white head. Aroma has a slight pumpkin smell with no spices. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor was real pumpkin and the spice flavor is all but non existent. Finishes with a caramel pumpkin sweetness that is somewhat satisfying. Decent brew.
