I have never tried pumpkin beer till last night.

I like my beer to be beer flavored. That being said, I found pumpkin ale to be a nice diversion. Not sure I would drink it all the time, but seasonally I can see myself enjoying a 6 pack.

I'm currently drinking Sam Adam's 20 pounds of pumpkin. First pumpkin beer I've ever had.

Not sure that I'll drink more than the three others in the variety pack I purchased.

As I get a little older, I like the things that are "...of the season". Pumpkin spice starts in October and runs through Thanksgiving. I will add some pumpkin spice creamer to my Weekend morning coffee and enjoy a pumpkin ale in the evening and after Thanksgiving I'll enjoy some tastes of the Christmas season and I will be tired of it all by New Years and then its the long wait to Spring flavors.

Sounds good, actually. Apple Ale fits in there as well.

10 Peanut Butter Beers You’ll Crave

I want one. Probably this one

Absence of Light is a creamy stout brewed with peanut butter and chocolate malts. With a balanced sweetness, you’ll also find flavors of roasted coffee and caramel malts.

Not a pumpkin beer, but I recently had Hardywood Barrel aged gingerbread stout and it was fantastic!

I've grown narrow minded in the last year. I would not spend my own money to try this now. Or pumpkin anything beer.

Thanks for the thread bump. Last year I was throwing darts at it. This year? I'm trying a pumpkin ale, or two …

OK I'll give you the first day of Fall as a reasonable Pumpkin beer starting date. I withdraw my earlier statement of the rule.

Only I didn't grow more narrow minded, I started that way. That peanut butter abomination sounds utterly revolting.

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.
