2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
For a guy that is not the biggest fan of pumpkin beers I didn’t mind this one as much as some of the more "crafty" labels. Pours a hazy golden amber with minimal white head. Nose is all pumpkin and some cinnamon and nutmeggy notes. Flavor is pumpkin, wheat, and spice. Not as much spice as the aroma as in the taste. Pleasantly surprised.

12 oz. bottle from Mike’s fridge. Pours a cloudy orange with a small off-white head. Pretty nice aroma- the pumpkin spice is far from overwhelming and balanced with sweet malts and wheat. The flavor is a slightly less satisfying version of the same. Light-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a thin, smooth mouthfeel. Not bad.

Pours reddish brown, almost flat. Hardly an impressive beginning. Can’t think of a better word than pungent to describe the nose, not pleasant. An ok beer but not one to look forward to

Really pretty crappy. Pretty much tastes like water that has had pumpkins floatIng In It for a week.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
341 ml bottle as ’Shock Top Spiced Pumpkin’ *Ale Brewed With Pumpkin and Spices. Dull orange copper, fading tan foam. Vegiefrooty pumpkin smell. Tastes of mild pumpkin and pie spices, mild malts, a bit oily, none of their ’Belgian White’ influence, thank goodness. Average carbonation, light-medium bodied, low hopped. The least offensive A-B offeringto date. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy tea color with poor lacing and head retention. Smells of yeast and wheat, with a subtle pumpkin odor. Tastes like pumpkin, but very mild. Below average to say the least.

Bottle at Brian’s. pretty nice nose. Nutmeg dominated I think. More of the same in the palate. A little light but decent. Underrated.

Aroma of pumpkin spice, caramel malts, potpourri... Mouthfeel is thin and watery... Light pumpkin spice, watery flavor... Minimal pumpkin... Overall a watery, unimpressive beer
