This is a nice alternative to the super-spicy, malty pumpkin ales that have dominated the market for the last few years. It's still a bit spicy, but is very well blended and balanced. As big as they've become, Sam Adams still manages to stay true to the craft roots when it comes to putting out specialty beers like this.
I'd call this one a must-try.
