    After the GMT, I decided to visit my beverage center (a good destination after a long day of work). This was the result:


    Has anyone tried these?

    yes, I know there's a more appropriate forum, but everyone loves beer and this is a throw-back to the GMT :)

    It's always time for beer! Never been much of a pumpkin beer fan though.

    I am currently drinking a very nice homebrewed stout. :thumbs:

    I got a 6'er of the Post Road the other day, it was too cinamony/spicy for my taste. Don't think i'll be getting that again.

    -Adam <- sticks with beer flavored beer.

    yeah, I think the Postroad is kind of like that too...too much like a low-fat pumpkin pie taste

    I personally have an affinity for Arrogant Bastard Ale, and Thomas Hardy's Ale.

    I've been wanting to try some Full Suspension Ale, whose spokesman is (surprise, surprise) Bender.

    I don't much care for the Pumpkin ales that are out there but I don't even like real pumpkin pie. Haven't tried any of those but they look yummy. I'm having my porter tasting party this month...can't wait!!!

    after a hard week of school, beer is sounding sooo good right now. I'll pretty much drink anything, BPR, Bud, Coors. No light beers. A Fat Tire would make my day though, or a heifeweisen . Though I've never had any, I would be up for trying a pumpkin ale though, being that it is that time of the year.

    If you are looking for a taste to indicate fall (other than a little extra malt) in an Oktoberfest, you are looking in the wrong place. :confused:
    Putting any flavoring in beer other than hops is verboten in Germany, particulalrly in something as traditional as an Oktoberfest beer.

    Every season means beer! Fall means dark beers would be more accurate.

    The Dogfish Head Punkin' Ale is drrrrrrreamy. I've only had it at the actual brewery, though. I've been telling myself I'm not allowed to buy it bottled at the store until October... so thanks for reminding me I owe myself a treat!:)

    I don't like AB. It's too malty/sweet for my taste. I do like Sierra Nevada Pale. Fat Tire isn't even beer. :blech:

    Yeah I tried my first pumpkin ales this year, too much nutmeg for my liking. And I agree, its always time for beer...just fall and winter is better then summer and spring, at least for the styles I like.

    Uh... ME?
    Way too hoppy for my tastes. Same with Sierra.
    Bout the most I can go (in the CA hop style) is Anchor Steam.

    My latest favs are:
    Sam Adams - October
    Petrus - Old Brown
    Phantome - Original Saison and Black Ghost
    Stone - Porter
    Rogue - Hazelnut
