look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance - Pours a quick 3 fingers of lite tan mocha foam, body is a brilliant translucent amber red, leaves broken webbed lacing inside of the glass. Color of the body is the strong point here, a beautiful fall color.

Smell - Scents of pumpkin spice, lite cinnamon, nutmeg, light crust, and a touch of brown sugar.

Taste - A nice blend of pumpkin spices to begin, a light sweetness of malt and a touch of brown sugar ride underneath, finishes with some light crust and slight minerals as the spices fade just a bit.

Mouthfeel - Lighter side of medium, but enough flavor to just fill the mouth w/out becoming watery. Carb is somewhat smooth and foams across the tongue, has a few light edges that usher in the light crust and mineral aspects in the finish.

Overall - This is a decent pumpkin ale, great price point and availability. There is a familiar malt bill and light yeast that is particular to Sam Adams brews present here, and is somewhat complimentary to the pumpkin spices here. Sure there is better, but I feel this is a decent representative of the style.
