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.

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.

Dark amber color. Cinnamon aroma. Sweet malty flavor with cinnamon and pumpkin flavors. Not an outstanding pumpkin ale.

Bottle thanks to Dmac. Pours out a clear dark copper-amber color with no real head to speak of. Aroma is slightly weak, some traditional pumpkin spices, and a little bit of sweet malts. Taste is better than the aroma, notes of pumpkin spices, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon and a little bit of some malty notes in there also. Definitely not a bad effort for a mass produced brew.

Pours copper with a tan head. Aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg and caramel. Taste is sweet with the pumpkin spices coming through. The aroma and taste are mild and work together nicely. Dry finish with no lingering pumpkin aftertaste..

I’m really getting into the pumpkin beers and like trying them. I got this beer out of a Sam Adams Harvest Collection mixpack. The beer pours a carmal/brown color with a white head. The aroma is pumpkin with lots of nutmeg and cinnamon. The flavor is the same.Lots of pumpkin, along withspices of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. This one has more hop presence also. A really good beer.

(Sample Date: 9/1/2010 Source:Other) 12 ox bottle from a mix pack. Caramel and dark sugar with light apple pie spice notes in aroma. Clear amber brown with small tan head. Cinnamon hits first in flavor along with caramel and fruit. Medium body and mouthfeel. Very spicy on the tongue.
