Happy Hour: Sam Adams 20 Pounds of Pumpkin

It's time for another edition of Happy Hour! If you're new to the blog, Happy Hour is our beer (and wine) review series where we (mainly the husband) give you our opinion on the different beers and wines that we try. We're big fans of craft beers and love finding local breweries to try out. Today's beer is often classified as a craft beer; however, it's from a much larger company than the local places that we tend to review.

Today’s review focuses on the 20 Pounds of Pumpkin beer from Sam Adams Brewing Company. We came across this beer in their fall variety pack. In fact, the only way we’ve been able to find this beer is in the variety pack. So, if you’re looking to try out this pumpkin beer, you’ll have to try out the other flavors as well.

This beer is a smooth, medium bodied beer with no hoppy flavor at all. The pumpkin isn’t some forced pumpkin spice like you might find in your coffee from major chain stores. It’s a more true pumpkin flavor. This legit can’t even count as a beer. Sam Adams has perfectly melded a natural and subtle flavor of pumpkin that abandons the grains to slap you with a lingering pumpkin aftertaste. The smooth and medium body of this pumpkin ale brings a flavor of fall that will leave you crying for more. With an easy going alcohol content, you can sip responsibly for a long while.

I award this epic masterpiece of pumpkin shenanigans a whopping 9/10 bottle caps. Want to see more of our reviews? Just click here to view more of our Happy Hour series. Do you have a favorite beer or brewery that you'd like to recommend? Leave it in the comments below!
