12 oz bottle of "Pumpkin Ale": shortened name but same 5.7% ABV. BB date notched March 2019.
Pours with a good looking dark copper body and a white head.
This is a good version of a pumpkin spice ale, with moderate spicing, a clean malty base and a smooth body.

This goes a long with the October theme, of course this makes a great brew when the leaves are falling. A different variety to the Oktoberfests. This one has variations of sweet and bitter. This one seems to a bit crisper than the others but still has a sweet finish.

Amber color. No head. Pumpkin flavor, not too sweet, and no harsh vegetal note on the finish like some get.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a copper color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a moderate pace. Slight lace ran here and there.
The aroma had some pumpkin/butternut squash sweetness running into some ginger and allspice. Light biscuits and honey and a touch of earthiness.
The flavor was moderately sweet through the pumpkin/butternut squash to honey and biscuit arrangement. Slight ginger in the aftertaste and a light dose of white pepper.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate. Not much of a finish, but seemed slightly sweet.
Overall, nothing really special as a pumpkin ale. They brew some better ones and there's better ones on the market.

this is a great beer just tried it for the first time today. I drink a bomber of this Brew

That color is very coppery.

The body is very very light for such a specialty beer.

It has a very good taste but I would not call it pumpkin it is something more like a butternut squash if you want to use something from the Squash Family.

Very little pumpkin taste, goldish orange color with a strong Sam Adams taste as is strong in nearly every Sam Adams beer. The only pumpkin beer worse than this is Linenkugel Pumpkin Shandy. Glad I only bought 1 as it was a huge disappointment. It also smelled like stale Sam Adams with hints of pumpkin and cinnamon. I strongly advise not getting this beer.

I bought a Sam Adams at the craft store,.... hmmmm,. Color is nice, typical dark pumpkin, aroma is kind of medicinal, taste is light, not very tasty, bland, overall one of the worst pumpkin beers I have ever tasted.
