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 amber brown pour, tight foamy head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices, canned pumpkin, brown sugar. Fat, chewy body. Creamy palate. More canned pumpkin and spice on the finish. Lingering sweet cinnamon flavor. Really good.

Beachmaster (149) - Oklahoma, USA - OCT 25, 2014
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear dark amber, with a small beige head that quickly fades. No appreciable lacing. Nose is pumpkin spice, and the taste follows the nose. Pleasant enough as a change of pace, but nothing special.

(Bottle). Pours a deep orange-brown complexion with thick tan head. Aroma is bready with yeast and natural pumpkin. Unfortunately appearance and aroma are its best attributes. The flavor is vegetable and spices with a bitter aftertaste. Thin palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark red color, short lasting head. I can feel a roasted caramel taste and sweet pumpkin. I donít know why some people hate it, I liked it a lot.

Mix pack. Not crazy about it. The middle turns into kind of a muddy sweet/spiced mess that sticks to your palate. Iíve had a lot of pumpkin beers like that, I think it happens because they dial back the hops. Would not drink it again.

Ericular (659) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Well carbonated. Nice deep orange but not much lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel malts and nutmeg. Taste is sweet with nutmeg up front, with mild pumpkin coming in at the end. Pretty good overall with an approachable fall vibe.

RickTStiles (774) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2014
pours dark amber with a very thin white head and no lacing. Aroma of decaying oranges, wet leaves, pumpkin an nutmeg. taste is very light with a touch of malty sweetness, some vague squash notes, damp brown sugar and various subtle warming spices. finish is mildly sweet. Thereís nothing offensive here but thereís also nothing memorable.

This ale delivers a good but basic taste as one expects from Sam Adams. Consistently good, and with a surprisingly strong aroma of pumpkin and spices.

355ml bottle. Sweet pumpkin pie flavor, actually not a bad pumpkin beer dispite people hating it.

Bottle. Pours orange with deep red hues, off-white head. Aroma of oumpkin, baking spices, sweet. Taste is lots of nutmeg and pumpkin, other baking spices present, medium bodied, crisp. Good.

Bottle to shaker. This is the 2nd pumpkin ale Iíve rated this week. Pours ruby amber, nice but quick head, no lacing. Aroma of allspice, nutmeg, clove. Taste is very balanced with the sweetness of the malts and pumpkin levels out the bitterness of the spices. Medium bodied, medium-high carbonation, silky mouth feel. Finishes drier than expected with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, pumpkin and roasted malt. Much better pumpkin beer than the first one I tried!
