Strongbow is not beer its cider. And yes its crap. Bulmers/Magners cider is much better.

Pumking is like gold around here and is one of the few pumpkin beers that I like. Places get it in and can't keep it in stock.

Gone to at least a dozen places and every place has said that they run out within a day. If it's on tap, it lasts maybe 2 days.

Had this for the first time just a few days ago, and did not like it at all. It was hard to finish the first bottle. It shocked me, as I have enjoyed all their other brews that I have had. Not only that, but I love all the flavors that they listed on the bottle as well. It almost started to taste flat towards the end. Maybe a bad batch? I might have to get another 4 pack just to see, because I should have loved that beer with all that was in it.

Anyone else think that beer out of cans is really underrated? I mean obviously drinking directly out of the can makes you look like a bum, but I think cans keep the flacour better than bottles do. Obviously neither touches barrels.

I love Pumpking, the perfect beer for the fall. I don't mind Shipyard Pumpkinhead either.

My favorite pumpkin beer is Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale. I used to like Pumking but I think they may have changed how they brewed it because the last two times I had it, it was pretty bad.

Good beer. Grabbed a 6 pack. Trying some new Oktoberfest beers this season. Loving what I'm finding.

I've never seen this before, but randomly ran into it today. I think the Sam Oktoberfest is probably the most overrated beer, ever... but this is enjoyable. It is thick, though, and can probably only do 2-3 at the most before needed something lighter.

It's a wheat beer...doesn't look like it, but tastes good enough to satisfy me. I want to do another batch tomorrow, but who knows.

I really like their Winter Lager, Noble Pils, Summer Ale, and Boston Lager.

But, their IPA is awful though and Cherry Wheat is one of the worst beers I've ever had.

I'm currently trying the Dogfish Head Pumkin Ale. As others have said, I've been rather unimpressed. It's a decent beer, but I was expecting much more considering their other great beers.

Guinness is the best for having with a meal. When I'm out with the boys I'm stuck on coors right now.

Absolute worst beer ever is old Milwaukee. Made me so sick I had to stay off beer for 6 months.

I'll agree with that. I don't mind the IPA, but the Cherry Wheat is bad...but that's part of why I like Sam Adams so much, they're always trying different things and attempting to push the limits of their own creativity.

I'm kind of a fan boy though haha

That's disappointing to hear, as it's my second favorite pumpkin beer behind Southern Tier's Pumpking. If you try it again, make sure to drink it warm.

For those looking for a nice Autumn beer, definitely give this a go. It's about $85 a case, but you can scoop one of these up at a bar / bottle shop:

Agreed. Cherry Wheat tastes like Robitussin. At least when drink a lot of that I hallucinate. Cherry Wheat just makes me sick.

Currently want to try this out soon:


Not really innovative but seems cool anyway.

Pyramid's new "Chai Wheat" beer is awesome, absolutely awesome.



As for pumpkin beer... My favorite is Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale.

I honestly wasn't all that crazy about Pumpking. It was too sweet compared to other pumpkin beers. Also agree with the other poster, wasn't crazy about Dogfish's pumpkin either.

I prefer Post Road (Brooklyn), Southhampton, and a few others I can't currently think of.
