3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shock Top has found something else to toss in a beer. I have a soft spot for pumpkin beers, and this one is pretty good. Don’t really notice anything special from the pumpkin and spice flavors being on top of a wheat ale, they pretty much drown it out but that’s ok. The pumpkin and spice is kept back below the level where it would annoy your tastebuds.

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. Amber, clear appearance with a beige head. Aroma of mild pumpkin spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, light herbs and light wheat. Similar flavor, mildly spiced and lightly sweet. Decent.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford. Appearance: 2 fingers off-white head, amber orange color, clear, light lacing. Aroma: pumpkin, nutmeg, light cinnamon, wheat. Palate: light-medium body, average carbonation, slightly dry finish, slight sticky texture. Taste: sweet wheat, and into nice pumpkin pie sweetness and light caramel, pumpkin pie aftertaste as well. Overall, cloying sweet, balance is not great, but the pumpkin is well done, and given the style, enjoyable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
"dark hazy orange, thin head. pleasant aroma mostly pumpkin spices, but a touch of orange/coriander as well. thin fizzy feel is a drawback ,and makes the flavor seem simpler. same as the aroma, but the aftertaste is lacking. thin and a touch weak. overall, as good as i could have hoped for."

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
About average pumpkin beer. Nothing overpowering about it. Smells and taste good. If you didnt tell people it had pumpkin in it most wouldn’t notice.

This is just as "good" as any of the other run of the mill pumpkin beers out there, actually better than some. Spices aren’t overpowering and I can actually still taste the base wheat beer. *I don’t really care of pumpkin beers.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy medium amber, no lace, no head. Looks like iced tea. Taste is pumpkin and malt that moves right through the palate to a no-change finish. Pretty plain, and pumpkin in an unappealing way.

First pumpkin beer of the year, and once again I am not intrigued. It is basically a sweet pilsner filtered through pumpkins and graham crackers.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pumpkin malt and cinnamon/nutmeg aroma. Golden yellow with large head. Lightly sweet nutmeg, cinnamon and milky pumpkin malt flavor. Okay body. Not bad for a Shock Top.

It's nice but nothing special. The pumpkin was nowhere to be found. It's as if they decided they ended a rocket effort at a fall beer.
