LOVE LOVE THIS BEER!

Seriously, every place I go to find this beer it's sold out. Even the liquor stores are impressed by how many people are asking for this. Many of my friends are just like me, going into the stores close to where they live to see if they have it. Since this is seasonal and is at the end of production this beer will be surely missed.

I highly recommend!

So I tossed this into a build your own 6 pack with 5 other pumpkin beers last October, not really expecting much since I've had a couple other Travelers beers and was not impressed at all. But damn, this was delicious.

Did it taste much like beer? No. Was it a sweet, cinnamon, brown sugary, pumpkin delight? Yes. I much prefer Southern Tier, Weyerbacher, or Flying Dog's pumpkin ales, but this was far superior to the other widely available options, such as Sam Adam's, Brooklyn, Leinenkugal, or Blue Moon.

In summation... This was a really enjoyable beer and I recommend picking up a 6 pack during the holidays, maybe just to share with any family and friends who aren't avid beer drinkers. It's good. Try it.
