Personally I've found pumpkin beer to taste like stale gingerbread cookies that our 4th grade teachers "treated" us to, and I try to avoid buying it. I made an exception on this Midnight Sun brew and I'll let you in on a secret: mixing this seasonal favorite with the flavors of typically beloved dark beers makes for a great brew. I went hunting for this one with my girlfriend, and found it while shoving an out of season corned beef sandwich into my slophole (the one on my face). This reminded me of a freshly baked gingerbread man, with chocolate trousers made just for me by my grandma. She hated the rest of her awful clan of children and hooked me up with a decently made one. This beer provides a moral: shopping for beer you normally distaste can surprise you as long as you eat out of season sandwich meat, and huddle around it on a musky night. Being a pumpkin king in a sea of an often averted flavor must be fun, and I'd know since I'm the shape of one. Don't fear this delight, and make an effort to herald a warm Autumn correctly this year. Or don't, and have a shitty Fall.
