2.93/5  rDev -16%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours a deep, cherry, amber in color with some golden hues near the edges of the glass when held up to the light. A good amount of foamy head sits atop, but dissipates quickly to almost nothing and doesn't leave much lacing around, either. Carbonation looks good.

S: Earthy, manure and sweet, candy-like pumpkin aroma with a malty backbone and some spice. Not very appealing to me, and has an air of "fakeness" to it.

T: Very sweet up front with caramel and molasses malts followed by a lot of pumpkin and spice, bittering on the backend with a slight hop presence. The spice doesn't sit well with me, though I imagine pumpkin fans would appreciate this.

M: Medium bodied with light and active carbonation. A bit thin on the tongue, could use a little more chewiness. It would be quite drinkable for those who can palate the flavor.

O: I was disappointed with this one, but perhaps it's just me. I guess I just don't really care much for pumpkin and spice in beer, or, at the least, I'm just not in the mood for it. I found it quite hard to drink and I think I'll pass on this one in the future. That said, I gave the remaining brews to my buddy who promptly drank them down and said he quite liked them, so don't let my review deter you. A solid offering from the Boston Brewing Company, just not for me!

Samuel Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale Brewed by Boston Beer Company ( Samuel Adams) with an ABV of 0f 5.7% This brew pours out a light brown color with a small white head. The smell is rich with sweetness and grains. There is nothing overpowering about this brew so far. The taste is smooth like pumpkin pie you get the pumpkin and nutmeg taste. There is a lot going on in this brew. There is nothing overpowering in this brew. This brew has a nice balance to it. The mouthfeel is nice and clean with a smooth aftertaste. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4 out 5. I would get this brew again.
