I don't drink, but this would be reason enough to quit.

I stopped in at the LC to grab my wife some wine today, and they had a big display of different kinds of pumpkin beers. I grabbed a porter and an ale.

I had the porter tonight. It was ok, but I didn't really taste much pumpkin.

Happy Thanksgiving by the way.

That sounds like a win.
Did you just concede that the best pumpkin ales are the ones that don’t taste like pumpkin?

Concede? I concede nothing. I insinuated that the best pumpkin ales would not taste of pumpkin. :)

When's the last time you bit into a pumpkin and said "Mmmm, that's good pumpkin?" What freak craves the taste of pumpkin? Would not a pumpkin ale that didn't taste of pumpkins have a high likelihood of tasting like, I dunno, ale?

Here's the thing with Pumpkin Ale. Each one is different. You've got to find your pumpkin ale or maybe it has to find you. One of the nastiest beers I've ever tasted in my life was a pumpkin ale. Don't give up.

The Great Pumpkin Ale is out there.

Waiting for you.

Yep. I have to weigh in with the Tuts. All things come from the great pumpkin field. Pumpkins are really just a pleasant excitation in the field. And being Rusty along with a love of Halloween makes all orange stuff good. And anything pumpkin is especially so. Dogs love pumpkin too and it's quite good for them. Feed your loved ones pumpkin.
This year I'm going to try the Wild North Pumpkin Ale. This is my favourite season.

I'm fully in agreement with you. I think pumpkin ale is ridiculous and I'm also in the 'Get-that-zederated-zederation-out-of-my-pint-glass' camp. One of the problems we run into with online threads is that, when you are looking at someone who makes a statement, or at least hearing their voice as they say it, it's easy to lose track of who said what unless you go back and refresh your memory. It seems that one tripped us both up on this thread.

Pumpkin ale, O pumpkin ale
may your delicacies continually flow
let us not forget the harvesters
who labored and pruned at every row.
Pumpkin ale, yes pumpkin ale
may your gourd never be smashed
unless that gourd is me

Best Pumpkin Ale I ever ran into: Schlafly Pumpkin Ale ( https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/583/32767/ ). This is the cat's pyjamas. Yum!
That one is at the top of the list for me as well!

As imagers of God, mankind seeks to redeem lost things. No child of God in their right mind would pick up a pumpkin and take a bite and be content. But what an extraordinary reflection of the divine! The child of God takes that seemingly inedible orange stuff, and with love and tender care, turns it into something new, beautiful, and full of flavor. A flavor that is all pumpkin and yet, not at all what it once was. If any pumpkin is in beer it is a new creation. The old is gone and the new has come.

Coffee I agree with. Coffee should be black, roasted from all sorts of different beans.

What is a plain beer? Give me plain beer brewed from all different things to brew with. Wheat? Rice? Pumpkin? Barley? Pumpkin, the king of plain ol fall beers!

To me "plain" beer is made from: grains, yeast, water, and some hops. No vegetables or fruit.
