Scratch that, I had one of these today based up the recommendation of one the local home brew clubs. Hated it. It smelled like a Pumpkin spice candle from a hobby/craft store. Then it tasted like what I would think a pumpkin spice candle would taste like.

Back to formulating a pumpkin ale recipe of my own.

This is one of my favorite seasonal beers of all time. I usually pick up a case as soon as its available because alot of places in this area sell out.

Dang, I passed this one up recently in favor of something else. Oh well, I guess it means another trip to the store. ;-)

I was able to try one of these again and it was almost nothing like I remembered it. I'm not sure if the beer has changed or my memory of it.

I swear you used to be able to taste the whipped cream (I always attributed this to lactose), I didn't detect it at all. It also tasted more boozy than I remember.

The first time I had it (about 2-3 years ago) I couldn't get enough of it, this time I ended up letting someone else finish my glass of it. It was ok, but it went from being a beer I'd like to drink to being a beer I would like to sample

I was in Pittsburgh this past weekend and had it on draft for the first time. Truly epic pumpkin ale. Really this is what I want pumpkin beers to taste like. It's too bad they don't sell it down here in Fl.

I was lucky enough to have this on draft at a restaurant after Oktoberfest the other week, and then promptly got sick.

I remember it being amazing though, and I'll be trying it again! I adore pumpkin beers.

Though next time I'll not already be drunk.
