Harvest Collection. It was $33 for a case, plus tax. So instead of making a separate trip for me to Wegmans to get a six pack, we bought up an entire case of variety harvest-themed beers.
The collection contains: Bonfire Rauchbier, Harvest Pumpkin Ale, Boston Lager, OctoberFest, Black Lager, and Irish Red.
I tried three of the six beers, starting (of course!) with the Harvest Pumpkin Ale.
I tried to taste the pumpkin (it claims that each batch is made with eleven pounds of pumpkin), but couldn't taste it. I did taste the spices of pumpkin pie (cinnamon, cloves), and I could smell and taste the malt, which almost smelled like fresh baked bread. It's a heavy beer (to me) and I didn't completely finish my bottle, despite enjoying it. My husband, who enjoys and consumes beer more than I do, said that he really liked it and could taste the pumpkin.
I would buy this again next year if we go camping in October. These spicy beers in their attractive fall packaging really set the tone for camping by the fire on a cool autumn day. As far as the pumpkin ale goes, I hear that there are better pumpkin beers out there. I don't think that I will try them, but I am glad I tried Sam Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale.
