Well I have to say.... This beer is fantastic. I picked up a six pack of pumpkin beer from the store, having never tried a pumpkin beer, to compare against my own. I am surprised how close my beer is to the store bought, I would say for the better. The only real difference is that the spice is more pronounced in the store bought which is something I can easily achieve next time if I wanted to. However in my beer you still get the aroma and flavor just not as strong, meaning you can drink more beer without getting sick of the spice taste and now I have a whole Keg of Pumpkin Ale.
