Brooklyn Pumpkin, it's nothing but pumpkin flavor, or Buffalo Bills Pumpkin Ale, again, nothing but pumpkin flavor in it.

I think the most well balanced medium type pumpkin ive had would be lakefront brewery's pumpkin lager. Nice medium of everything farily flawless lager.

I tried the pumking again and got alot more citrus bittering in the next bottle and less of the graham but still fairly grahmy thats why i always like to try a new one a few times. I also liked smashed pumpkin a little less after the next bottle, hmm but still preferred the smashed,but honestly my favorite may have been Lakefronts pumpkin lager this year from what I was able to try.

I didnt get the opportunity to try the others you had but tried a dozen or so i heard shefly's pumpkin was really good but was always out when i would try to seek it,so it must be decent. Just thought i would throw some opinion here. Definatly a fun pumpkin adventure, all the winter ales are coming out now.

R.I.P. Michigan Brewing Company Screamin' Pumpkin. It was my favorite, and the company went under. What a shame.

Went out and bought some Pumpkin ales and they are missing the mark. IMHO, Buffalo Bills Pumpkin Ale and did not get the pumpkin flavor at all. It is very drinkable (quafable), but the pumpkin flavor was not there. We also tried the Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale. King's review was spot on there. Lots of nutmeg and clove, crisp, malty, but not a pumpkin pie. The quest continues.

I've had 2 bottles of Pumking this season and so far they're definitely better than last year's batch. Hopefully they bottle the Oak-Aged version this year.

I picked up some of the 2012 crop today. Still not done shopping though, as there were a couple I didn't find, namely Pumking and the Schlafly's beer. I'm not even sure if schlafly's is distributed in my area. Anyway, now that the weather is becoming more conducive to pumpkin beers here, I'll be starting the reviews later today.
