Sam Adams' Pumpkin Ale is a spicy mouthful of Thanksgiving/harvest flavor, heavy on cinnamon and nutmeg. The beer drinks easy, though, and I didn't find the spices too distracting. Not as subtle as Dogfish Head's Pumpkin Ale, this pumpkin in the Sam Adams Pumpkin Ale verges on intrusive. However, in the end, the taste balances out.

I wouldn't want to drink it all the time, but it's a great beer.
