Never had it. Here's a starting point from their website:

ABV:   8.0%   |   IBU:   16
Appearance: Copper colored, bright
Process: Brewed with pumpkin squash and a blend of spices
Hops: Marynka (PL)
Grains : Pale, Crystal, Munich, Wheat, Chocolate
Yeast: American Ale
SRM: 27

Pounds of pumpkin form a malty foundation that supports the fall flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.
On Tap/Bottled: Hopfenbier, Kurbis Marzen, Red Rye, Vienna Lager,      

Fermenting: Imperial Porter
Up Next: Maibock, Braunbier

Best Pumpkin Ale I've ever tasted.  IMHO.

What's your opinion on swapping the American yeast for WLP 002?  This ale has a really nice mouthfeel.

Couldn't hurt. How about WY1450? Everyone says it's the bee's knees in regards to a great mouthfeel without tasting under attenuated.

I've used 1450 in many brews.  I do like it but want to try something different.

The only pumpkin ale I ever made I used 002 in.  It was quite nice.

I think I will go for the 002.  Thanks.
