Every year I look forward to Fall for many reasons:
- Gloomy, chilly weather
- Gorgeous colorful trees
- Pumpkin beer
- Thoughts of New England
- Excellent running weather
- Snuggling with my ladies
- Octoberfest beer
- Wool sweaters
This year I have tried four "pumpkin" beers.
- Samuel Adams' Octoberfest
- Lakefront Brewery's Pumpkin Ale
- Shipyard Brewery's Pumpkinhead Ale
- Blue Moon's Harvest Ale
Coors, Denver, CO
- Buffalo Bill's Pumpkin Ale
All of these ales have their own unique taste. Some have a more pronounced pumpkin flavor than others. My two favorites thus far are the Lakefront and Shipyard, but the Sam Adams has been growing on me. I have not tried the Buffalo Bills but when I do, I will post more photos and review.
If you are looking for a refreshing, seasonal beer to replace your normal Bud, or Coors, you might like these. If you do not want a strong pumpkin taste, I recommend the Sam Adams Octoberfest or the Blue Moon's Pumpkin Ale.
