Terrible. I love love love pumpkin beers and this one was recommended to me at a specialty beer store because I told him I like Elysian's NightOwl. This is nothing like that. I would drink NightOwl over this any day or actually I would drink the pumpkin beer from the local craft brewery a few miles from us. This tastes nothing like pumpkin and had such a strong disgusting smell and taste but I couldn't put my finger on what it was. My husband thought it was hazelnut. Whatever it was, it was terrible.

I had previously replied to a forum stating that Red Dog was the worst beer I had ever had. I stand corrected. This is awful. The vanilla was overpowering. Words cannot explain how bad this is. It is an embarrassment. I poured most of this beer down the drain and I have never, ever done that.
