It's been toooooo long since I've first tried this brew at PNC Park last year! Just happened to be at Giant Eagle today and they had about 12 cases sitting in the floor and at least two in on the cooler shelf, I HAD to buy this because I knew how quickly it sold last year! Some may say that it's too early for Pumpkin beer, but this is honest to god, hands down, THE best one on the market!! If you were to make pumpkin pie and drink the liquid, this is what you'd taste, minus the alcohol. I love this beer so much!!! #pumpkintheeverything

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.
