Smell is a little pumpkin. It is pretty thin and not really that strong in pumpkin flavors. An ok beer.

Pretty bronze color. Had to really stick my nose in to smell anything pumpkin-y, more warm spices (mostly nutmeg in mine) than the squash proper. Better than the other shock top offerings in my assortment and very nice, but if Iíd been set on a "pumpkin ale" Iíd have been disappointed. Itís kind of interesting, though, more bitter than I expected and with a nice sweetness from the wheat.

We did a blind taste test between this beer and other pumpkin ales to determine which one is the best pumpkin ale for the season. The beers were Shipyard Pumpkinhead, Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat, Buffalo Billís Americaís Original Pumpkin Ale, Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale, and New Belgium Pumpkick. Check it out:

On tap at Ron Blacks Beer Hall. Hazy pour. Weak beer. Overpowering sweet pumpkin taste. Not good

Good looking hazy orange. White head excellent retention. Aroma of pumpkin and wheat (as in the name). Slight yeast smell. flavor is bland wheat beer with a pumpkin kick. Some spice. I thought this would be thin but it has a nice body to it. Better than other shock top offerings.

12 fl oz bottle. 13233 BG48. (Anheuser-Busch Gift Shop) St Louis, MO.
Clear light red colour with a small white head.
Spices and sweetness in the aroma.
The flavour is... well... itís bad. Spices, some sweetness and maybe a bit yeast. I donít like this.

Bottle. Pours amber-orange with a small puffy white head. Smells of cinnamon and nutmeg. Tastes of watery spices: nutmeg, close... very light bodied.

2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours amber with a white head that disappears quickly. Pleasant pumpkin pie and cinnamon aroma. Mouthful is soft, medium. Flavor is malty but a bit too pumpkin pie. Should be sharper on the finish. Feels too "soft" overall.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle over the weekend. Aroma had notes of light pumpkins, some very mild spice character here. Flavor had a very mild pumpkin character to it, but largely bland - both in any actual pumpkin notes or in spices. Mostly Harmless, I guess.
