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.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle and served in pint glass: Deep amber near brown hue with a fading fizzy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, pumpkin meat, caramel, toasted bread, and a touch of earthy yeast esters. Sort of weak nose, faint and hard to grasp. The flavor profile gives a nod to the style but much like the nose is a tad weak and simple. Sweet caramel malts supported by light spice notes and not much else. The mouth feel is sort of slick and lively, gummy finish. Boy, compared to the SA Double Pumpkin I had on tap, this is the fugly step sister. Dumbed down for the masses, sad really.

TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle. Dark reddish amber with a thin of white head. Nose is cinnamon, nutmeg, light pumpkin. Flavor is restrained, thankfully, more Spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, pretty well balanced for a Pumpkin beer.

ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle from Harvest Collection 12-pack. Moderate hint of pumpkin in the nose. Reddish, orange body. Nice, pumpkin flavor. Most pumpkin beers are quite frankly awful. As usual, Sam Adams comes through with a professionally done, flawless brew. Doesn’t push the envelope, but being content to be a top 5 pumpkin ale isn’t a bad thing.

Scipio (1041) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Pours a deeper amber with a light tan head that doesn’t last long. Aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon, and spice. Taste is mostly pumpkin, with quite a bit of yeasty notes. Still some cinnamon also. A little sweet and very dry when drinking. This has a yeasty aftertaste. More lighter in body. I don’t find this overly complex. Nothing really jumps out. Those that like the taste of pumpkin would probably enjoy this more than I do.

Strong nutmeg aroma that makes you think of Thanksgiving. Head retention is lacking. Great caramel flavor I suspect from caramelization of the pumpkins’ sugars.

Nice amber pour. Pumpkin spices are subtle enough to make this drinkable for me. Not a huge pumpkin fan but this is ok ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rougeau13 (2954) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Dark, clear, orange-brown with a small, quickly gone beige head. Aroma of pumpkin pie, toast, and sweet fruit. Taste is malty and sweet, fruity, and mildly spiced and bitter. Light-medium bodied, slightly dry. Decent beer, light on pumpkin, but enjoyable.

ScoWRee (421) - Perkiomen, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Pours an amber brownish, iced teacolor with a thin tan foamy head. Aroma of clove and roasted malt Taste is Clove and Pumpkin. A nice Ale. The Commercial descrption is accurate.

wxman (1813) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Pours a clear orange/brown with a full antique lace head. Roasted malt and pumpkin pie aroma. Has a dominant flavor of sweet roasted and caramel malt, but also a butteriness and even, I think, some licorice character I wasn’t expecting. The pumpkin is not nearly as evident in the taste as in the aroma and there is a vegital element that is a bit off-putting. Seems like a good brown ale with the fall holiday character one would expect, but I’m not overly impressed. Not as balanced as it should be.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2012 Beautiful color. Light aroma and taste, but very smooth. Great relax beer, but not the king of pumpkin beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
