This was a great beer for such a massive brewery. This beer would go great with dinner, Thanksgiving dinner maybe? They say it’s a “Pumpkin” or “Harvest” beer. Though I couldn’t really taste the pumpkin in it, and the spices weren’t terribly distinct – I started thinking. Of the pumpkin beers I’ve had, I don’t think I’ve ever had one that actually tasted like pumpkins!?! What’s up with that? Nonetheless, for the price point and the season – it’s definitely worth stocking a sixer of this beer.
