If you're in Wisconsin, keep an eye out for Lakefront Brewery's Pumpkin Lager. I would highly recommend this as well.

Well, isn't that helpful?

Why don't you post the recipe or commercial example you tried so that others can avoid your misfortune/mistake?

Southern Tier's Pumpking aparently has just started hitting some shelves. Southampton does a nice mild example of the style and my favorite example would be Weyerbacher's Imperial Pumpkin (both are fall releases IIRC).

I need to try another couple this year. Last year I had my first pumpkin beer - Buffalo Bill or something. I thought the flavors were too subdued and it tasted a bit like an amber that was a bit off. I would think it could be really good if done right.

I imagined you saying that in the old Dana Carvey Church lady voice.



WELL ISN"T THAT SPECIAL!!!!!!

Agreed, while I will never pay for pumpkin beer again, I see no need to bash them.

Check Woodman's. They carry Lakefront. I don't know if they'll stock their pumpkin, though.

I've tried several pumpkin beers, and they're all vile disgusting things. I think the problem of why I don't like them is they tend to get overspiced, thinking the spice will mellow, when it actually just gets worse.

Laurel, take some of your coriander beer and mix in some pumpkin pie spice and a slice o pie, and that is what it'll taste like.

I agree, at least about commercial pumpkin beers that I've had. I've heard that RichBrewer and Yuri_rage have made good ones, though.

It depends on what kind of beer you like, I think. I'm a beer purist, I guess, and I don't like wits or other beers with "flavors" like coriander, either, so I didn't really expect to enjoy a beer with cinnamon/pumpkin.

I love pumpkin pie, and I love beer. Not in the same glass, though.
