This is an awesome pumpkin beer. Very pumpkiny and spicy, but not overwhelming. Also, not too bitter. Also, it's from Seattle which is cool, because Seattle is awesome. Also, it's available in 12oz bottles, so you don't necessarily need to drink a massive pint-sized beer. Also, the label is pretty tight. Highly recommend.

From growler at home. I used to be a big fan of So. Tier's Pumpking but it seems to have shifted towards a drier, hop forward brew which has left me behind. I picked up this from Elysian because many reviews claimed it was a bit sweet. Not for my tastes.

It pours nicely & the slight cooper tone of the head bode well of the very nice warm spice blend. The taste was just OK by me. Not as dry or hoppy as this year's (2014) So Tier effort but still 2 bases short of a home run.
