34. Samuel Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale

I think this is the fourth Pumpkin beer I have reviewed in the past week and of all of them this had the mildest flavoring. Overall this is not a bad beer but I expected more from Samuel Adams. As I try more varieties of Sam Adams I am finding they make very few bad beers but many of them are average or only slightly better than average. I have my favorites; White Ale, Summer Ale, Noble Pils and up until I started this blog I had pretty much stayed to these and their Light beer. You will not be disappointed in this beer but I doubt you will be running back to the store to buy more either.
