I was really hoping to like this but I can't say that I do. The mega dose of spices is way too far forward and it is super sweet. There may be some pumpkin in there but I can't seem to get to it. I would not order it again and would only recommend it as a change of pace from Woodchuck .

This is now my top favorite Pumpkin beer. I have gone through 4 cases and would go through more if I could find it. It takes like pumpkin pie in a bottle. 7% is a good abv. As I like to drink 2 beers, 3 max due to the carbonation. An ABV of 7% or above gets it done. I have tasted at least 30 pumpkin beers in the last 6 years and this truly has a pumpkin taste. It is a little on the sweeter side, but not so sweet that I have to stop at one. To me there is no other beer that tastes so truly "pumpkin". I'll skip the pie this year and have a block house, if I can find anymore.

Lots of pumpkin flavor but almost too sticky sweet.

Had a 16 oz glass on tap after dinner. I really did not like this beer at all. It was way too heavy on the spices for me. I saw someone drinking this with sugar and cinnamon on the glass rim. I can't imagine what that tasted like. It was really sweet without the added sugar. It also left a strange aftertaste....Don't know what that was? I would not drink this beer again.
