I've tried quite a few so far, but I have one bottle sitting in my fridge I hear trumps all other Pumpkin Ales this year: Southern Tier Pumpking. Obviously, I won't say it's the best since I haven't had it yet, but what has been your favorite Pumpkin Ale this year?

Say what you will, but DFH Punkin is seriously outstanding this year. Kudos to whatever they've changed from last year.

I think Southern Tier does a good job a replicating a piece of pumpkin pie. But, I think it's a little over-spiced. It's got a great after taste, but the initial spice it just too much for me.

Tried about 5 so far.. Shipyard's Pumpkinhead was probably my favorite although a little heavy on the cinnamon.

DFH's is probably second favorite for me.

I really could not get into shipyards, i did not get pumpkin pie at all, to me it came off tasting like tooth paste, and call it a mental block if you will, i just coudnt wrap my noodle around such a light colored pumpkin beer

Southern tier was fantastic, hoping to get my hands on some DFH soon to try!
