decent pumpkin flavor, ShockTop and Terrapin do a much better job honestly.

One of these days I'm going to taste a pumpkin beer that satisfies my pumpkin beer craving. Until that day, Sam Adams does a mediocre job here, with that creepy cheap aftertaste and falseness that is all too often present in this style.

Poured beautiful copper red into a Sam Adams glass. Head thinner than usual. I won't go into a long course on Aroma and mouthfeel..etc.

What I really like about this ale is that it was NOT over spiced, and I could actually taste the pumpkin. As a bit of a history buff, I wonder if this isn't the most true to the form/style. After all, the colonists grew and brewed with whatever they had on hand. My bet is an understated ale is probably closer to true. I was also impressed with the clarity and color. Sitting in 90 degree Atlanta, it made me think of the fall in New England. This is a good beer.

I will grab a six of this again. It isn't my all time fav, but the folks up in Boston got this one right.
