Samuel Adams "Harvest Pumpkin Ale"
Pumpkin Ale (ABV 5.7%)

[Best served in a Lager glass]

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a clear dark amber with a reddish hue and had an average sized (1-2 finger) creamy off white head which produced some good lacing.

The aroma was moderately strong of a toasted bread malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of brown sugar, allspice, nutmeg and pumpkin.

The taste was a nice malty sweet with a nice note of brown sugar and allspice from the onset and finished about the same with a hint of nutmeg and a nice dose of pumpkin at the end. The flavor lingered for a descent amount of time allowing for the spices to settle nicely on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just a tad under medium in body and quite creamy yet a little dry in texture with a nice forceful carbonation.

Overall a flavorful Pumpkin Ale with just the right amount of spices blended together for a nice tasty experience.
