Pumpkin Beer

Earlier tonight I picked up a 4-pack of bottles of "Dogfish Head Punkin Ale." This is self-decribed as "[a] full-bodied brown ale brewed with real pumpkin, brown sugar, allspice, cinnamon & nutmeg." It's not very good. I think I might like this pumpkin beer if only it had only pumpkin and not the rest of that description. The extra spices (e.g. brown sugar, allspice, nutmeg) really over-flavor and kill it for me. Hopefully my friends will finish off the other 3 beers. I'll just work on the 12-pack of Yuengling tomorrow night, instead (of which 8 or less remain).
