Horrible. Marketed in a section of different Oktoberfest beers, but this is far from anything on the shelf. At first it's bad cider taste and then you're stuck with that strange awful aftertaste. I've managed to muscle through some pretty bad beers (cough*Alaskan Amber*cough), but this is truly terrible beer. Bad enough that after tasting one the remaining 5 were discarded. To finish, selling this at the price point of great brands like Founders, are you serious Shipyard?!?

Not as terrible as the ratings reflect. However, I did consumer after a hard train run...so nearly any beer sounded good. Overall, I kind of appreciated the lightness of this one, not nearly as heavy as most pumpkin brews.
