look: 2 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12oz standard pressure-cap bottle into a mason jar. Reviewed live.

A- Two-finger khaki head that recedes immediately. Ruby-walnut body.

S- Sickly-sweet pumpkin and blackstrap molasses. Just seems too powerful and sweet. Not a fan of this aroma.

T- Kind of grassy hops lead the charge. Roasty-malts and pumpkin. Not bad, but not good.

M- Heavier feel, roasty sort of dryness at the finish.

O- Not much to say about this beer. Not good.

12 oz bottle poured into goblet.

A - Dark orange/brown with a finger of off white head.

S - I get a lot of spices that go with the sweet pumpkin aroma. Cinnamon and nutmeg are prevalent.

T - Semisweet pumpkin with cinnamon, nutmeg, and roasted malt. It reminds me of pumpkin pie, but not too heavy on the pumpkin.

M - Moderate body and moderate carbonation. Not too sticky, not too thin.

O - Once again, Samuel Adams impresses me. The pumpkin isn't overpowering, nor is this too sweet. A good solid pumpkin beer, though I couldn't have more than 2 in one sitting.

Served in a chalice.

A: Pours a orangish-mahogany color, its clear, has a short off white head with small amounts of head.

S: Smells of pumpkins, wheat, malts, barley, spices

T: Tastes of wheat, yeast, barley, malts, pumpkins, spices, herbs, it is a bit sweet, has a slight hop taste at the finish, the pumpkin flavor is quite faint.

M: Medium bodied beer, with too much carbonation that masks the flavors, gives too much gas

O: Over all it was alright, too carbonated to my taste and the pumpkin flavor was too faint for it to strike me as unique but it wasn't horrendous.
