    Picked up a 6'er yesterday to try out this flavor for the first time ever.

    Only one they had was "Post Road" Pumpkin Ale.

    I was expecting to taste maybe a hint of pumpkin pie or something, but this shit SUCKS. I don't taste pumpkin ANYWHERE, at ANYTIME.

    Is there a better one I could go with? Because the thought of the flavor itself sounds really great.

    I've had some pumpkin ales and found they were pretty good. Not something I would drink every day, but interesting in season.

    Sorry, can't recall the names

    Belgium does that with beer, flavours and stuff. Could never figure out why. Just as well they make some damn good beers though or their propensity for effing around with different flavours might be a bit offputting.

    Be more specific...blasphemy in my negativity towards that particular beer, or blasphemy because I'm talking about drinking flavored beers? If it's the latter, let me preemptively say there's nothing wrong with trying out different beers just for shits and giggles.

    Because my main beer is just a regular old lager, the oldest brewery in the US...Yuengling.
