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.

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.

Poured from a single bottle into a pint glass. 10/3

Pours bright copper, big bubble white foam with full settling out. Light pumpkin nose with backing brown sugar. Taste is a light, watery, pumpkin malt. Cinnamon/nutmeg blended in, but very mellow. Just a touch on the sweet side. Average for pumpkin beers.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours clear copper with a bubbly one finger head. Quickly dissipates to a minimal cap and lacing.

S - Heavy spices, particularly cinnamon, clove, and ginger, with a nice amount of lightly sour pumpkin and sweet malt.

T - Very light flavor at first of sour pumpkin and a hint of malt, the pumpkin getting much heavier on the swallow. Spices in there as well, but also subdued. Very mild bitterness in the aftertaste.

M - Light body and medium carbonation, watery for my taste in an autumn season ale.

O - I was really excited from the smell but overall disappointed after that. The flavor needed to be heavier and with more depth and I would prefer the body to be heavier. Unfortunately it is another mediocre pumpkin ale to add to the list.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Very clear and richly amber hued.
Aroma of warm spices and pumpkin. Rich vanilla and buttery undertones.
Heavy bitterness from the spices on the back of the tongue. Light and almost floral up front. Very balanced, but definitely lets you know it's a pumpkin beer.
Great mouthfeel. Very cozy, like pulling on a light sweater on a cool fall day.
Great beer. Not crazy pumpkin, but self limiting. Clearly made by talented brewer's who wanted to say 'pumpkin' but not throw it in your face.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

a: golden amber orange in color. pretty clear, yet heavy looking (if that makes sense). 1/2 finger head that fades immediately

s: creamy pumpkin pie, vanilla, brown sugar, molasses, nutmeg, cinnamon, sweet caramel malts. smells very rich and sweet, finishes with a hint of clove spice

t: roasted pumpkin and pumpkin seeds are the first thing you taste. followed by nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and some brown sugar. finishes with the mellow spice and a tiny hint of alcohol - dry finish

m: solid medium. more carbonation than expected here, definitely a little fizzy

o: a good pumpkin beer, but nothing mind blowing. i'd recommend picking it up and giving it a try - its nice and mellow, with a rustic pumpkin flavor, and not overly spiced. nothing offending here. could use a little fuller flavor
