2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

A good season beer, but there are most definitely better pumpkin-flavored ales.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Herber Antrunk mit erkennbarer Gemüsenote des Kürbis. Eigen wirkend, das Aroma wirkt nicht sehr eingebunden in die anderen relativ schwachen Aromen des Bieres. Bitter werdend, die Gemüsenote wird zunehmend unspektakulärer, so bleibt im Abgang nur eine Nuance, der Rest betseht aus einer vorwiegend dumpf bitteren Note Spät taucht eine verwässerte Malznote auf.. Hierzulande aufgrund der Zutaten probierenswert. 10/7/7/8/10/7
