A mild pumpkin and spice taste and smell. The finish is a littl bitter. Not a bad beer and the novelty is not overdone.

"one left over from the holiday, and addded to a recent tasting for shits and giggles. really, not as bad as my initial reaction when i found out this beer existed. the aroma is quite pleasant, if not terribly complex. lots of cinnomon and spices. looks ok. the feel, though, is too light, and takes away a little from what may be a decent flavor."

The head builds up tall and has a creamy off white color. It quickly fades down to a thin ring of lace around the edge of the glass. This head sits on top of a golden honey colored body with very good clarity. The aroma has a light grainy character with a lots of pumpkin pie spice mixed in. It has a bit hit of spice throughout with cinnamon being most noticeable over other pumpkin pie spices. Hop flavor seems neutral but it adds bitterness the cinnamon flavor. Underneath there is a mildly sweet malty flavor with some mild pumpkin flavor. The finishes quickly and has a grainy alcohol quality to it. The body is light to medium with a thin, watery and slick feel. Its carbonation is about average. Overall this is defiantly not a standout and its fairly heavy spicing can become a little bit overpowering.

This was a poor excuse for a pumpkin beer. Very light bodied with almost no spice flavor and no malt backbone.

This spiced pumpkin ale from Anheuser-Busch is probably one of their most interesting beers. Pours a golden amber with a slight scent of pumpkin. Drinks very smooth with a slight pumpkin taste however the spices stand out more. Not a bad beer by any means but there certainly is room for in improvement by increasing the strength of the pumpkin and spice taste. Still a good choice to get you into the fall mood.

Orange pour. Smells like pumpkin. Tastes like pumpkin. I like pumpkin pie. Just not for a drink ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Found in my in-laws fridge. It poured a burnt orange color with a small white head. The aroma was pumpkiny with light spice and some dirt. The taste was light pumpkin with some sweet caramel and nutmeggy notes.

From a very old set of notes I found. All my notes say is "Smells like a pumpkin ate a pumpkin then shit it out. Taste is even worse. I’d drink it again" ...Must have been at the end of the night...

Bottle. Didn’t realize this was an A-B project when I first had it. Pours a clear copper with a nice beige head. Aroma of spices (nutmeg, clove, cinnamon), orange and bready malts. Flavors of caramel, spices and just a hint of pumpkin. Not bad for an A-B product, but there are better pumpkin/spice ales.

For something coming from Anheuser-Busch, this is not that bad of a beer. When poured, there’s a slight foamy head atop a copper-colored body … here’s where I was hoping for a more hearty head of foam on this pumpkin ale. The beer is full of spice and nutmeg with just a tad hint of pumpkin; and adorned with hints of aroma like pumpkin bread (or is some cases like a warm pumpkin pie right out of the oven). It’s a very easy beer to drink and one to be enjoyed during the Fall.
