I am all in with this sentiment, Mack. Pumpkin does not belong with hops and malts. Period. I do not care how much pumpkin your brewer can get at a low low price. It is unnatural.Even if it's real, I wouldn't let that crap touch my hand. I don't do pumpkin spice.
Last year I read a review and tried the Dogfish Head Punkin' Ale and the best I can say is I drank it and didn't wretch. The pumpkin flavor was mellow and borderline approachable. Anything with the featured Pumpkin Spice in it should be packaged up and sent straight to Hell for those folks to enjoy.
