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.

This brew sucked me in on the end of an aisle at the local super mercado As SAMs never fails to please I decided to roll the dice on an autumn classic so lets give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a waft of cinnamon and spice and everything nice including a hint of clove and some maltiness. Appropriately pouring into a SAPP this brew partakes a deep bronze with a very thick tan head looking much like pumpkin pie in a glass. On the sip the spices are very prominent jumping out on the initial taste then fading back to give way to very classic slightly bitter cinnamon pumpkin pie crust flavor. Units is a very deep flavored almost warming brew, maybe a bit early to be imbibing as it would serve well when the mercury drops. SAB puts out yet another fine selection
