I definitely have a taste for pumpkin ales. It all started for me back in the nineties when a brewer acquaintance, Stephan Danckers, brewed up a special batch. I was the only one who liked the sample that was left in the fridge at work - more for me. Anyway, a couple years ago I went on a quest to find ones as good as Stephans (which I don't think he ever made commercially). This one is pretty good, as are many others.

It pours a deep reddish brown and has a nice pumpkin aroma mixed with an ale smell. The taste is just a little more spiced than I would prefer, but the pumkin flavor is more pronounced than most - it seems real. It's a nice balance of a little bitter hoppiness with the spicy pumpkin.

This is one of my favorites of the style.
