This cleverly named pumpkin ale pours orange-amber with a thin but persistent head. Nice blend of pumpkin, pie spices and vanilla.

Sampled at stop and go in Puerto Rico. Grainy and nutmeggy. Pumpkin. Decent example of the style. Not amazing or anything.

Southampton Pumpkin Ale has a very thin, gray-white head, no lacing, a mostly clear, amber appearance, and a good amount of bubbles streaming up. The aroma is of pumpkin and Fall spices, with an underlying beer fragrance, but the flavor is reversed- mainly a beer taste with a background of pumpkin and spices. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Southampton Pumpkin Ale finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and easily drinkable. This is very good, because they did not go overboard with the pumpkin and spices, so it is still essentially a beer. RJT

A: Orangish/Brown Hue, Passes Some Light, Thin White Head Ring, No Lacing
S: Pumpkin, Cinnamon
T: Pumpkin, Mild Cinnamon
M: Mediocre Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, Mildly Spicy
Overall, a pretty average pumpkin ale, a nice beginner beer for non craft beer drinkers but doesnt do much for me, especially when there are better options available and at the same price.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, Fall 2013 bottling. Pours lightly hazy orange copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread, toast, clove, brown sugar, toffee, light vanilla, and toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of pumpkin, spice, and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread, toast, clove, brown sugar, toffee, light vanilla, and toasted earthiness. Lingering notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread, toast, clove, brown sugar, and light toffee on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and complexity of malt, spice, and pumpkin notes; with decent flavor robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good pumpkin ale. Lacking some robustness of flavors; but has very well balanced flavors and is a nicely enjoyable pumpkin ale offering.

Southampton does the pumpkin better than maybe any other beer I’ve had. Rich in flavor.
