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.

Faint aroma of spices. Unexpected off-flavors; too much spice, no pumpkin, odd taste. Astringent with a rotten aftertaste.

This beer has a strong vanilla smell with a with a hint of cinnamon. Has a small head with decent lacing. Has a awesome dark red color to it. The beer has a strong spicey cinnamon beginning flavor with a pumpkin , nutmeg aftertaste. This is a full-bodied beer with medium carbonation. Really enjoyed this well rounded beer with a fantastic finish.

Pours a shining amber with an offwhite head. Smells of pumpkin spice, allspice and all. The flavor is not too overwhelming as it is more pumpkin then spice. Smooth autumn finish.

Bottle Pours a clear amber with a beige head. The head fades nicely and laces well. Aroma is good mostly pumpkin, spices, some vanilla. Smells like a good pumpkin pie as it should. Has an average carbonation. The flavor is good, nice spice back bone and ginger snap cookie like. Has a medium body. The texture is sticky. Has a great mouthfeel. A real good finish with a pleasing aftertaste. I like the pumpkin beers and some are over done but this one hits the mark perfectly. Exactly what I think the beer should be. very well done.

pours a deep caramel color...interestingly seems to have light rosey hue as well.,.with a medium tan head...decent lacing and retention. aroma has some pumpkin pie spices...clovey...and also some caramel and earthiness...autumnal aroma! flavor is very malty...bready, caramely, with some spice and hops rounding it out. not much pumpkin flavor present though. mouthfeel is silky and the finish lingers with spice and subtle hops. ok but not great...has a boring and cheap quality and taste about it like a poorly made homebrew from a crappy kit.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2011 (2011) Samuel Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale is a dense, clear, sparkling, copper ale with a light beige head that disappears quickly. Pumpkin and spice are in the nose, mostly nutmeg and cinnamon. Its very lively and medium bodied. The finish is chewy and chalky. It has a spicy flavor, like allspice. Its tangy and theres a light juniper-like bitterness with a pumpkin pie and graham cracker aftertaste. Its nothing out of the ordinary but not bad at all. (2010) Samuel Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale is a crystal clear deep amber ale with a small khaki head that fades to a blotch and leaves nice lacing on the glass. There is spice, wood and pumpkin in the nose with notes of nutmeg and vanilla. Its medium-light bodied and pretty smooth. It leaves the mouth a little silty. Theres more spice than pumpkin here. I cant isolate a pumpkin flavor. The spices and the hops work together well to provide a moderate bitterness. It has a good, caramelly malt presence thats not too sweet. Theres good balance all around. Its very autumny and very Sam Adams. Its American in style, but there seem to be heavy nods to England and Germany here. (Aroma 8, Appearance 4, Taste 8, Palate 4, Overall 16)

good beer if you like pumpkin, very sweet and not a whole lot of finish, seems to be over before it starts. points for infusing flavor but average at best.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark orangish amber body with a one finger frothy off-white head that had pretty good retention. The nose is a mix of sweet caramel, pumpkin pie spices, and a decent amount of pumpkin meat. The flavor pretty well mirrors the aroma, sweet but not cloying, fairly restrained nutmeg and cinnamon, and caramelized pumpkin meat on the finish. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. This was surprisingly good, I wasnt expecting this to be spiced so lightly.

Clear amber pour, little head. Good spicy pumpkin aroma (not really a beer smell, but I like it). I dont really like the pumpkin flavor in the beer however. Its just a beer, with pumpkin.
