Last fall (2012), I bought one bottle of every pumpkin beer I could find at Total Wine. I wanted to try them all so I could decide on a favorite. I only had 3 per night so my tasting wouldn't be skewed by getting drunk. Shock Top Pumpkin came in dead last out of them all:

Wasatch Pumpkin Seasonal Ale (8/10)
Lakefront Pumpkin Lager (7/10)
Sam Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale (6/10)
Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale (6/10)
Buffalo Bill’s Pumpkin Ale (5/10)
Indian Wells Spicy Pumpkin Ale (5/10)
Shipyard Pumpkinhead (4/10)
Unita Punk’n (4/10)
Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat (3/10)

Sorry for the mini-hijack!

After the documentary "Beer Wars" I've tried to boycott InBev, aka Anheiser-Busch, aka Shock Top (also Stella Artois, Brahma, Beck's, Leffe, Boddingtons, Hoegaarden, Labatt, Löwenbräu, St. Pauli Girl and Tennent's. Oh and Budweiser family of beers (Bud, Bud Light, Bud Select, etc.), the Michelob Family of beers (Michelob, Michelob Light, Michelob Ultra), the Busch Family of beers (Busch, Busch Light, Busch Ice), and the Natural Family (Natural Light & Natural Ice), but I suppose this is a whole different subject.

It's this type of scientific analysis that keeps me coming back to the Mane.

But shouldn't you have tried to determine which beer tasted better when you are drunk?

I can answer that without even testing. The great ones would come down to a 6, and the crappy ones would come up to a 6...everything is mediocre when you're drunk!

My vote is for "stink". Because I'm sure that has peed on something including itself.

Oh, but I can't forgive you for drinking pumpkin beer. That's sooo last month.

I only hate Texas when we play the Texans. Also, when I have to drive 16 hours through the state only to realize I am only at the halfway point.
