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.

This is my first pumpkin beer of any sort, my first Sam Adams Harvest Collection as well.

This Pumpkin Ale is very easily the best beer of the 2014 Collection. It pours a gorgeous deep orange/amber kind of hazy. Smells like pure pumpkin pie/allspice and hints of cinnamon. Taste is exacrtly the same - pumpkin pie. Just amazing. Shame there were only 2 in the pack, and I'm surprised at the low ratings. If you like pumpkin pie, you'll love this beer.
