Best before February, 2013. Poured from a 12oz bottle into my Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.

Dark mahogany/burnt orange liqud, not quite clear and capped with an active sunset head. Poor retention, vague lacing.

Roast malt, low vegetal rooty pumpkin aroma along with a dose of clove, nutmeg, and other pie spices. Earthy with very low hop notes.

Strong cinnamon flavor threatens to overwhelm the base of the ale - toasty malt, brown sugar, and root vegetable flavors emerge from the spices. Medium-dry finish.

Light-bodied, sprtizy, well carbonated...

Excessive spicing, but decent base flavors. One of those beers that you think "this isn't that great," but somehow you find it difficult to stop drinking it.

Samuel Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale has a thick, creamy, tan head and a clear, bubbly, copper appearance, with nice lacing rings left behind. The aroma is of spicy sweetness, pumpkin pie, white pepper, and malt. The flavor is of the same character (pie in a glass), with some other unusual things in there. There might be a slight hop presence as well. Mouthfeel is medium, and Samuel Adams Harvest Ale finishes crisp, dry, and easy going. Overall, this is very good.

Poured into a pint glass. Nice two fingers of frothy head. Clear, copper color body.
Smells like holiday spices. Nutmeg and pumpkin pie.
It tastes like pumpkin pie. It even had a creamy texture. Low carbonation. I don't really like it but if you like pumpkin pie beer this beer is perfect.
