I discovered something I hadn't previously known--I love pumpkin ales. This is odd--I don't like spiced beers, I don't care for pumpkin pie, and I only like fruit beers (strawberry or cherry) in the summer on a hot day as a refreshing twist. But I have given myself so completely over to pumpkin ales, and I try them every chance I get. I've been lucky to have some really good ones this year (they're perfect for getting into the Halloween spirit). Here's my top 5 for 2012.
