Default Pumpkin beers to try

Who can recommend a few good pumpkin beers that I should try tonight? I'm gonna hit the liquor store on my way home and get a mixed 6er. I've already tried Harvest Moon (vile) and O'Fallon's Pumpkin Ale (meh)...what else you got?

And hurry, for Pete's sake, I'm leaving work in 20 minutes!

I haven't tried it, but FDH makes one (Punkin Ale).

Smutty nose was ok and so was Cisco. We had a pumpkin stout the other night that was pretty tasty...

Thank you, ladies...writing them down now. I was wondering about the DFH Punkin Ale. Has anyone actually had it?

I have had DFH Punkin in past years. It wasn't my favorite then.

Saranac and Brooklyn (Post Road Pumpkin) make my two faves.

I tried the Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale and thought it was ok, definately not vile. What are you tasting that makes you call it vile? Maybe I'm not tasting it?

I really liked Southern Tiers' Pumking Imperial Pumpkin Ale. It has a big time pumpkin pie flavor but just enough of the malt to mellow it out and a bite at the end.

Punk from DFH is good, I liked last years better.

Ichabod from New Holland Brewing is one of my favorites

Pumpkin from Lake Front Brewery is awesome (and the only lager pumpkin beer I am aware of)

Those are my top three every year

I have a 6'er of New Holland at home that I haven't tried yet, I'm glad you said you liked it, they guy in the store said it's good.
