Not very good. Best thing available at the CVS. Bummed that I have 5 more of these things.

I had this at Applebee's. Pours hazy orange with a off white head. Taste pumpkin, spice. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.

Six pack bottle, smell of wheat and a hint of spice, appearance is cloudy orange,taste is confusing with a mixture of lemon and spice, very mediocre beer that doesn’t know if it is a straight wheat beer or pumpkin ale. Beer is ok but there are better options

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Drank from the bottle, so no comments on appearance. This beer was offered to me by a friend, and I was intrigued with the opportunity to try a pumpkin beer as the fall weather is getting cooler. The flavor is odd, spicy, but neither smelled nor tasted of pumpkin. Instead, it’s an odd combination of spices that succeeds in masking the beer flavor, but is not really pleasant at all. Interesting at first sip, but just unpleasant afterwards. Could not finish the bottle. Won’t buy or try again.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light vegetal aroma but stronger fresh bread scents. Slightly murky pumpkin orange with a decent white head. Soft wheat flavor and body with light but enjoyable pumpkin pie spices. Light caramel sweetness balances out the veg and spices nicely. Good, light, refreshing fall pumpkin beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12fl oz. bottle. Pours a nearly clear, slightly dark orange with a half finger, off-white head that fades to a thin film quickly.
Aroma is semi-sweet. Notes of pumpkin pie and spices.
Taste is mild compared to the aroma. Not overly bitter or malty with a slightly spiced pumpkin aftertaste.
Low to medium body with a medium carbonation. Fairly crisp and clean in the mouth. Refreshing and drinkable.
Overall not bad but not the greatest. Could have a stronger flavour to match the aroma, and a bit more of a feeling in the mouth. Worth a try if you can’t get any other pumpkin brew. Cheers!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Just drank this one out of the bottle. Picked up a 6 pack for Halloween. Aromas of weak pumpkin spice and some skunk. Tastes of herbal/floral stuff, dirty water, a hint of pumpkin, and artificial nutmeg. Sweet, rotten fruit finish. Flavors are forgettable and not all that pleasant. There goes another pumpkin beer I do not like. Drinkable, but not necessarily enjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Frosty pint glass
Consumed: Oct. 16, 2013
Misc.: My youngest brother bought a 6-pack; Bottle read, “Pour down side of glass until ˝ inch is left in bottle. Swirl and pour remaining brew to properly blend spices and release the aroma and flavor.”
Poured a caramel, copper hazy color with 2-to-3 fingers of khaki white head. No lacing along the sides of the glass. Minimal retention on the top all the way down.
Not much of a smell really, but could definitely tell it was a Shock Top. Caramel, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, all less than even the Blue Moon Pumpkin. Some Belgian kick though.
Tasted a tad better than the smell. Nutmeg, cinnamon, Belgian wheat spices, cloves and some wintry spices.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Earthy abrupt finish.
Nothing too great about this beer. Skip it and move onto another.
