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.

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 I’ve 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 it’s 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.

RedSox2004 (1410) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Clear copper/brown with a tan head, very nice retention and good lacing. Caramel malt aromas with noticable pumpkin pie spice. Surprisingly rich roasted and caramel malt flavor with a spice kick and a hops bitterness late. Medium body, ample carbonation, and a pleasant balance in the finish. Much better than anticipated.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a mug. The color is a clear reddish gold with two fingers of foamy brownish head and some nice thick lacing. The smell is a little funky at first. Some bitter earthy hop flavor so far and not a lot of pumpkin to be had. The taste is pumpkin at last. There is a juicy pumpkin flavor that is accompanied with a nice sweet flavor that is interesting. There is a bitterness that is out there in the background but there is mostly a pumpkin spicy flavor that keeps me coming back at the moment. This beer has a nice lighter feel to it. There is a nice finish to it and it goes down well. Ii is not the best beer from Boston beer Co. but not a bad one either.

12oz bottle, mixed 12pk. Harvest Collection. Pours dark copper. Yup, smells like a spice beer. Definitely a pumpkin ale. Peppery spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove. Flavor of pumpkin bread, spice, and yeasty esters. Finishes with a black pepper kick. not the best pumpkin spice ale, drinks pretty good.
