    Yes, tried several of them in their sampler 12-pack. I must say that I like the "Octoberfest" much, much better. I am now stocking up, before it goes away...:cool:

    I've found the only way I like pumpkin is in bread or pie. Haven't tasted a pumpkin beer I like.

    Also, look at the word 'pumpkin' several times. What a strange word.

    ^^ This is probably their worst beer and I've tried them all but a few. The Black Lager would be second. I tried the pumpkin a few weeks ago and I have to say it was the first beer that I enjoyed slightly warm rather than ice cold. It seemed the warmer it became the more the pumpkin really stood out.

    Beer along with fruit or vegetables should never be spoken of in the same sentence.

    Yeah............ So what do you think it really means??

    I bought a 12pk of Shipyard Pumpkin Head Ale last year and had to force myself to choke it down. Yecchh! It was like drinking a bottle of potpourri. The Sam Adams might be better, but I can't bring myself to try it.
