Alright, so I have enjoyed this beer for a while now. But I still don't get the hype that a lot of people have for it. It's a really solid brew, it has nice pumpkin flavors, but it's not the be-all-end-all of beers like some of my friends seem to think. I'm a bit of a Southern Tier mark, too, but this is just one of their above average beers to me.
There is a lot of pumpkin and spice smell. But the taste somehow doesn't encompass all of that smell. For everyone who says, "Pumpkin pie in a bottle!" I have to question what type of pumpkin pie y'all have been eating all these years.
There's a lot of cream taste in the beer, some spice, and some pumpkin. But certainly nowhere near the level that some like to think.
I buy a case of this when it comes out and split it with another friend of mine who is obsessed with it. It's definitely drinkable and definitely has some good flavor, but I do feel it's a bit overhyped.
