Try it mixed with a good stout. No kidding.

Yeah, Sam Smith's is awesome. In London, they have entire pubs dedicated to a single brewer. One of the Sam Smith's pubs had a dark cherry beer that was one of the more unique things I have ever had.

They're also some of the best and most historic pubs in London, Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, The Cittee of yorke, Princess Louise. They're also the cheapest, a pint in there is about £2.50 wheras the average in central London is about £3.70.

I had to google to make sure you weren't making up those names on the spot.

Framboise mixed with a good stout is apparently a really good mix. I still don't like it, but then again I don't think I'll ever enjoy beer.

Another reason for me to go to London.

Seriously, since I turned 21 I've been trying to find a decent pumpkin beer. I avoided the Sam Adams one because I figured it would just be as bad as all the rest. Instead, it reminded me of this one type of Pepsi that came out years ago. The Pepsi was supposed to be Christmas flavored. Now, I'm sure you're thinking how the hell can something be Christmas flavored. Well, when you drank the Pepsi, you immediately understood. The stuff tasted like a wreath. To me this was not a bad thing, but the shit definitely didn't last long. Made me sad, because I loved it to death, it was every smell I associated with Christmas (as far as floral and herbs go) and I couldn't get enough of it.

Anyways, that's how this beer was. It was all about the spice. It tasted very herbal and fresh and then right at the end,there was this hint of pumpkin.

. I was so happy to find this beer.

I did not know that Sam Adams made pumpkin beer. I thought Octoberfest was their only fall brew. Glad I saw this post.

This means Summer Ale will be coming off of the shelves soon.

interesting....not a big fan of Sam Adams but maybe I'll check this out. So happy it's pumpkin beer season is approaching. There's more and more new stuff every year to try.

Apparently Southern Tier's Pumpkin beer is amazing. Which is good news, because all the liquor stores here carry Southern Tier. I don't see it yet, but I assume it will be here soon.

Sam Adams has a whole fall box out right now. Samuel Adams - America's World Class Beer

Everything I've had out of it so far is awesome. I actually hadn't had a plain Boston Lager yet, but it's great. The Latitude's not the best.
