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 deep amber with a thin light tan head that fades quickly. Aroma is of light earthy nutty malts but weak. Taste is a wonderfully complex blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, and caramel malts with a lingering cinnamon flavor. The flavors are not overpowering and balance the beer nicely. I have not had any other of the pumpkin-style ales but this was a great start.

12oz bottle 9/8/10 (Binnyís Naperville-Sam Adams Harvest Collection Variety Pack)-50į in Lager Glass-Pours a clear copperish amber with a small white ring for a head. Aroma of pumpkin and spices. Taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. This medium bodied brew is really good. Great balance with the flavors. Wish they could make all their styles taste this good.

Part of the Harvest Collection. Ok this is was surprisingly good. Coppry pour with a nose of spice and (YEP PUMPKIN). Pumpkin taste with spice and caramel malts. I believe I tasted a hint of chocolate? Dry finish. A good Pumpkin ale.

Pours a clear reddish amber color with a 1/4 inch head that dissipates and gathers around the edges. Pumpkin and pumpkin spices in the nose. Some toasted and roasted malt and caramel. Medium-bodied, medium carbonation with a short finish. Mildly sweet with malt, pumpkin and pumpkin spice flavor, but not cloying at all. Tea leaf-like dry finish. I was pleasantly surprised with this brew. Easy to drink and enjoyable.

From a twelve ounce bottle that was part of the "Samuel Adams Harvest Collection" variety collection purchased at the Green Township K-Mart outside Cincinnati, Ohio - Alright, this one poured a reddish hued brew with a spicey aroma and laced, light tan head of fast fading foam. Tastewise, this is a delicious beer a bit off of the standard track, with an almost pumpkin pie taste.

Seriously bros, I know Sam Adams beers aim for the mainstream and donít get too pumped nowadays but this is damn tasty with a spicy cinnamon aftertaste which lingers, a medium wet palatte that has some thickness to it, and sweet herbal tones which makes it a beer I could drink again.

Real nice pumpkin ale, with all the flavors and aromas of the fall. Pours a deep copper with thin off-white head. Aromas of pumpkin, clove, cinnamon, etc. Flavor was a great blend of sweet malts, spices, and a nice hop finish that just brought it all together. Medium bodied and a creamy texture make this one of the best pumpkins of the season.

Pours a copper color with small tan head, and had some good lacing. Aroma is nutmeg, spices, vanilla and some malt. Flavor is the strong point for me, not being a pumpkin ale guy, 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.

12 oz bottle from the Autumn Harvest 12 pack. Pours a rich looking deep amber with a 1/2" beige head. Aroma is malt, allspice and a hint of pumpkin. Palate is average in body with soft carbonation making it very easy drinking. Taste is dominated with malt with background flavors of nutmeg, clove and a little pumpkin. Actually a decent pumpkin ale. Didnít taste like pumpkin pie filling like some do.

Iím a sucker for almost anything pumpkin. Brilliant amber, nice off-white head. Allspice, nutmeg up front, nutty, faint vanilla, nice malt character in the backend, toast, biscuit, special roast. Flavor, allspice, nutmeg, clove, special roast, nutty, light butter, brown sugar, as it warms really comes together. Medium carbonation, soft mouthfeel. Really dig this, would session this for awhile in the fall no problem.
