I have tried many pumkin beers, for the price and quality of this offering, I think it's a winner. The pumkin and spices are mellow and subdued enough to know you are drinking a decent ale. You can almost imagine the taste if it wasn't a pumpkin beer. I'm a big fan of Weyerbacher Imperial pumkin, but for almost $2 less a 4 pack for the hippo it's a big no brainer because they are very similar in character. The difference between the 2 and many other imperial pumpkins is the creamy texture wich I find very appealing in this style. I think this beer is top notch for the style. If you can find it this year and like pumkin beer, I promise you that you won't be disappointed. Cheers.
Very good again. My friend and I compared this to 6 other imperial pumpkins and found this beers texture (not flavor) unique to the point of enhansing the pumpkin beer experience. They all have pumpkin flavor but the creamyness seems to set it apart in a nice way.
