Pleased to see that Sam Adams decided to release in six packs.

Refreshing pumpkin taste without any of the added spices that usually make up a pumkin ale or lager. The beer stays true to its form and is genuinly enjoyable. It seemed to do better than most pumpkins on the shelves but that is in part due to its name brand.

Type: Pumpkin Ale
Color: Amber
Body: Lightly carbonated.
Head: White thin head that tasted amazing but quickly went away.
Taste: Lots of pumpkin and full of fall flavor. Hint of spices but not overpowering. Definitely brewed to highlight the pumpkins.
Aroma: Pumpkins with a great malty aroma.

This beer was the perfect beer to enjoy UFC 135 with. It reminded me that summer was over and fall was already here. My tip: hurry up and try this beer before it runs out (like Samuel Adams Dunlekweizen). You will be able to find it in your local beer store not your grocery store.
