Shrews629 (193) - Kentucky, USA - JAN 4, 2011
Copper/orange in color. Clear. Tons of bubbles rising. White, fizzy, thin head that hung around for only a short minute, then settled to a thin ring. A bit of lacing. Sweet smelling malt. Cinnamon and gingerbread. Not getting a whole lot of the pumpkin. Some is there, but not much. The sweet smell is a touch overpowering to me. A little more of the pumpkin in the taste, but it seems to be dominated by the cinnamon and ginger. Some additional spices of somekind. Maybe the clove. Just a bit too sweet for my liking. It does taste a bit artificial to me also. Adjuncts, I guess? Medium/thin mouthfeel. Doesn’t leave an over abundance on the palate. It is smooth, but it is also mostly watery. This is a brew that I will probably never drink again. Too sweet and artificial tasting. Some may find it enjoyable, but I just don’t care for it.

rougeau13 (2024) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Clear orange-amber with a small white head. Smells like caramel malt and toejam with spices. Taste is a little pumpkin spice (nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger...), but mostly its sweet malt. Body is closer to medium than I’d expect, given the brewer, but it feels like its leaving a chalky film on the back of my teeth. It’s definitely one of A-Bs better beers, but I still wouldn’t go so far as to call it good.

smells like wet dog. grain, wish it had more flavor, but it’s okay. decent for a cheap pumpkin beer.

anderson01 (210) - Idaho, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Has a small head with decent lacing. Bright orange in color. Taste like a lager with a hint of pumpkin and cinnamon. Beer was highly carbonated, watery and thin bodied. Overall a good beer to have while watching a movie but could not drink all night.

garrison (789) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Purchased from "Kellers IGA" in Cincinnati, Ohio - Alright, this one poured an orangw brew with a rapid fading white head and a strong pumpkin pie aroma! Tastewise, it lacked a lot of body, but the upfront taste was fine!

Nimrod979 (206) - Hagerstown, Maryland, USA - NOV 24, 2010
Light amber in color, tiny white head that disappears quickly. Aroma of caramel malts, pumpkin, and spice. Flavor is pretty much the same. A little watery and thin on he palate, but thats what I would expect from Anheuser-Busch. Not great but not bad.

Finhead (1213) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Light gold pour with a slightly off-white head. The nose is malty with notes of pumpkin and clove. The light body has a mildly sweet taste. Not bad.

murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Light spice aroma, little bit of cinnamon and just a hint of maltiness. Light bodied, hint of sweetness. Somewhat unpleasant painty aftertaste. Bland and unimpressive.

jmm635 (887) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2010
Clear, light orange in color with an off white head. Typical pumpkin ale aromas, although subdued. Thin, watery, lacks real flavor. Honestly, better than I was expecting. That doesn’t mean it was good, though.
