Why all the Pumking hate? Living in CA, I've never had a chance to try it until a buddy brought home a few bottles from Oregon a few weeks ago. Personally, I didn't think it was bad. It's not my favorite pumpkin beer, but it was still drinkable and FAR from a drain pour. Me thinks there be elitists about. Is it just this years batch that is off? Help me understand. As for Creme Brulee, I loved it. It's good in small quantities, and genuinely tastes like it's namesake. Cheers to Sourthern Tier for making BOTH of those beers.
