The Great Pumpkin (Ale). . . Where Art Thou?

So, sorry it’s been forever since my last post.  School has started and so has coaching and my time is at a premium.  Things will be a little sparse until football is over in November.  I will try to get some small posts in, but they will not be coming in on a regular basis.  For today’s post, I won’t be giving you a recipe, but a question: Where have all the good pumpkin ales gone?  I’ve tried a few and they are all, well, unsatisfactory. I’ve tried a few, but they all leave me . . . wanting.  Some, like Busch’s Jacks Pumpkin Spice Ale tastes like beer soaked pumpkin pie.   Sweet beer (like sweet wine) is not good.  Some, like Sam Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale tastes too much like their Boston Ale.  The Blue Moon has a nice nice orange color, but tastes like any other ale.  Someone please help me!
