Aroma of soiled diaper. Tastes like someone filtered moldy pumpkin pie through my grandpa’s tighty whiteys.

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 they’re still not great.

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

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(12oz bottle from Total Wine Scottsdale). Pours a hazy orange-amber color with off-white head. Aroma has pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and wheat. Taste is sweet with both pumpkin and spices. Light bodied with an oily texture. Smooth finish. This is a decent pumpkin beer. It’s not offensive or over-the-top and pretty much hits all the flavor components you’d want in a beer of this kind.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. An addition to the family that fits in, I guess. Taste is artifical pumpking, a bit sweet but roasted with oak I believe. Not too sweet though, so it keeps you coming back. Color is deadpan orange with amber undertones. head is minimal, but lasts throughout. I bit too sweet for maximum enjoyment, but the price is right. Yeah, come on, pumpking wheat, what ever gets you throught the day.

Pumpkin taste is noticable in the beginning of the first sip, then the cloves, nutmeg,and allspice take over the beer. The carbonation is a bit harsh, and has a strange aftertaste. Overall, I would rate this at the bottom of the pack of the pumpkin beers I have tried this year. The aftertaste is strange, and even turns my stomach a little. The original flavors aren’t bad, but there is something about this one that just does not agree. I don’t hate it, but I won’t be purchasing this one again.
