How to describe the worse thing I have ever tired.. How about someone threw up a pumpkin pie on a pine tree.. ? I don't mean to be rude.. But it was literally the worst beer I have ever had. If you like Pumpkin and you like VERY Hoppy IPAs.. then I guess you might like this obination. If you lean towards liking more malty beers, and not a big fan of pumpkin stay far.. far.. far away. As you should Fear it.

355ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£4.40):
Another fairly enjoyable Flying Dog effort that was by no means the brewery's best beer but a good one nonetheless, particularly because it was such a big, well flavoured beer that was very nice to sit and sip away at. Perhaps the alcohol content could have been better hidden but it didn't take much away from the taste and it was well worth trying without truly exciting.

10/24/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. At first blush I was smitten but less than half way through the heavy texture started to interfere w/the subtle spiciness.

As a big So. Tier Pumpking fan I feel I've committed some weird form of adultery.

Moral of the story is what may appear to be fresh, new & exciting often is not. Maybe I'm just getting old.
