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.

Travlr (23995) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2014
The more Sam Adams beers I drink, the less I like them. This one was no exception, tons of spice in the aroma and extremely sweet taste. Not my cup of tea.

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 19, 2012
A dark amber color with an off-white head. Heavy on the spices, mostly nutmeg and all spice with a bit of cinnamon. Toasted malt and bread aromas with a light sweetness of toffee. The flavor has a nice subtle vanilla note along with the spices. A little bit of gingerbread character to it as well. Not much actual pumpkin to it, but a pretty decent beer anyway.

bhensonb (14978) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours darkly ruddy with a slight yellowish head. Nice pie spice aroma. Near med body. Flavor is light caramel, maybe even roast caramel, with enough pie spice to make it tasty. Im sure the smaller brewers bring out tastier pumpkin ales, but this is pretty good.
