This beer is as close to perfection as I have found, in pumpkin beers.

I look for pumpkin pie flavor - it is the best I can relate to the taste of a pumpkin (it's a squash, their naturally fairly bland).

Served cold, as the bottle suggests, is best.

Beautiful dark brown/orange color

Not over-carbonated, great medium/full body mouth feel

OK, I now know I probably just don't like this style. I love Southern Tier so I figured this was a good bet for my first pumpkin beer. But I thought it was just awful and poured it out after 1/4 glass. I like spiced beers but the spices here not only overwhelm the standard beer ingredients; they are just distasteful. Other types of beers are an acquired taste, but I think you have to be born with a taste for something like this.
