Pumpkin comes through in the aroma, and taste, however the flavor was slightly bitter. Notes of spices in the finish, this poured a rich orange color with thick orange head.

Pours a honey golden mildly murky color. Short white head that fades very quickly. Banana bread nose. Medium body with a crispy carbonation. Subtle pumpkin notes are balanced by the malt.

Kavu (2426) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2014
12 fl. oz. on tap @ McGreevy’s. Pours clear orange with a low head. Aroma is malts with some pumpkin and spices. Flavor is more bland, with the pumpkin and spices more on the background. Not bad, but has "big brewery" written all over it.

Very cinnamony smell, taste is the same, smooth and malty, tad bit watery but good pumpkin taste

Panzuriel (1358) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Twelve oz bottle. Nose is mildly pumpkin and wheat. Taste is deceptively good pumpkin, mild wheat presence. Body is thinner and lively. Not a bad beer though. Better than expected.

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.

phaleslu (6795) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2014
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

Not bad for a macro...tastes nutty to me but still pleasant, not overbearing, pretty good

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

Lagerboy (1322) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
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)
