I know lots of folks aren't too big on Pumpkin Ales but my goodness you must try this beer. I drank it on tap at my local Pluckers Sports Bar and didn't even drink it slow enough to recall what it looked like.

A piece of liquid pumpkin pie but BETTER.

despite critics i actallly looved this beer. Great pumpkin taste and it just hit the spot for me not the best pumpkin beer on the market but a great beer to have during a nice fall day and i think that accounts for something. so really dont knock this beer to you have tried it you could do a lot worse

When I drink a pumpkin ale I want to know I'm drinking a pumpkin ale. This is what a pumpkin ale is supposed to taste like. There's nothing subtle about this beer. The pumpkin taste and aroma hit you right away along with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. It's like a liquid pumpkin pie minus the terrible sweetness. And you can drink it guilt-free knowing they only use the best, freshest, non-GMO ingredients and sustainable business practices.

Looks exactly how a pumpkin beer should look; I love the smooth, pumpkin flavor and the slightly warming aftertaste of pie. The cranberry hints work well and none of the flavors are overpowering... Great beer; I'll definitely look for this one again!

This is the PERFECT pumpkin gose type beer. No, it's it officially a gose, but its cranberry flavor is much more reminiscent of a tart wheat beer than a typical pumpkin selection and the pumpkin flavor is just present enough to keep it a pumpkin beer.

For this style I like it a lot. Not very heavy on the spices a tiny tart of cranberry and very smooth.
