This is my favorite pumpkin beer. The flavor of pumpkin is there but not too strong. The spices are aromatic but not artificial on the tongue. It's a nice solid beer with some pumpkin added for flavor. Not a pumpkin with beer as an afterthought.

This is one of the best pumpkin ales I have had. I have been on the hunt for the best tasting one and this is right up there. Has good pumpkin flavor, not overpowering and not as sweet as some of the others I have tasted. This beer has a bit of a bite to it in my opinion. The spices are very well blended for a delicious tasting beer! Best of luck finding this gem this late in the season...although, I did find a place earlier today that still had several cases available. Needless to say, I bought one!!! Happy drinking everyone!!!
