Samuel Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale ....

Today's beer is a Harvest Pumpkin Ale, Ale Brewed with Pumpkin and Spices, from The Boston Beer Company.  5.7% ABV is listed on the twelve ounce bottle.  The web site shows 14 IBUs.

This beer poured with a medium head, that was tan or a little darker in color.  Beer color is a reddish amber or copper.  The aroma has a strong fruit/pumpkin note, with some spice in the background.  This beer has a little more pumpkin in the taste than some others I have tried.  At the tail end of the taste, you get some real pumpkin pie spices.  Some malt and caramel as well.  Mild to medium in strength.  I like the flavor, but it felt a little thin in the mouth.  Very little aftertaste, just a hint of pumpkin and spice.
