Blah trying to be nice here.... Blue moon beats this thats for sure... Thin watery had it in Sept a little better this bottle may be past its prime even than it was nothing to write home about had to try a sixer of it now I am stuck with finishing it off The hops in Bud Light have more going for it.... The bottle even tells me how to pour it to get the best effect perfect advice for all the many newbies that buy this crap up (canít imagine too many). Iíll stop now. Drinkable but Iíll certainly pass next year. Its a beer thats about it. Yes there are some spices in it nutmeg pumpkin

So its a caramel orange, white cover. Smells like caramel and allspice. Tastes sweet with the typical pumpkin pie spices. Nothing wrong, nothing interesting. Maybe a touch thin.

Given to me as a sample bottle, I forgot about this one for a few days before taking it home and cracking it. Pours out a darker shade of amber than I expected, with a lively off-white foam head. The aromas are, well, barely noticeable. Thereís a touch of pumpkin, but not like sweet pumpkin. It smells like someone took a beer dunked their slice of pumpkin pie into it for a moment. The taste is, well, Iím not sure how to put this. Iíve never had a beer to review like this. Iím going to try to take a few more sips just for the sake of an evaluation. It really tastes as if someone dunked a slice of pumpkin pie into a glass of shock top beer. It really doesnít taste much like pumpkin at all. I get just the tiniest little touch of spices, but barely noticeable. I hate to admit it, but Iím going to pour most of this down the drain, Iím just not into it whatsoever. And I used to be a Shock Top fan, but this is, well, totally not what I was hoping for. Sorry guys, Iím going to pass on this one. Better luck next time

Nice amber color with a small head that dissipated quickly. Very clear. Aroma is sweet pumpkin & spices. Taste is very clean as well with an easy pumpkin pie flavor - subtle. An easy to drink beer with good flavor.

Bottle. Nice looking beer at the start. Smells of cinnamon, clove and spice. Taste is similar but very sweet... almost too sweet for my liking. Shock Top tries for a Bud product but theyíre still not great.

12oz bottle. Just horrible. Buddy of mine brought some over. Thin nose, thin palate, really metallic. No spices whatsoever, just bad.

far better than the Blue Moon alternative, however i am finding the whole pumpkin ale poorly thought out and executed as a whole at this point. gimmicky
