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. Donít really notice anything special from the pumpkin and spice flavors being on top of a wheat ale, they pretty much drown it out but thatís ok. The pumpkin and spice is kept back below the level where it would annoy your tastebuds.

Rated based on notes taken 26 Aug 2012 -- a pumpkin from Shocktop? Pretty much as youíd expect: artificial and watery.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Foods Plus, Plaistow, NH. Aroma is pumpkin-y but without a lot of nutmeg/cinnamon/clove spiciness. Appearance is cloudy orange with minimal white head and fair retention with minimal lacing. Taste is medium sweet and not complex. Palate is medium bodied with lively carbonation at the tip of the tongue. Finish is pretty abrupt. Overall, more memorable pumpkin beers if you are searching for one in the fall. Not objectionable in any way but nothing to particularly recommend it.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance - This beer has a really nice dark orange color with a small white head.
Taste Ė I consider this to be one of the top pumpkin beers (especially for the price)
Palate -This is a medium bodied beer with light carbonation.
Overall - For me, this is a great pumpkin beer for the price. I recommend it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle to half-pint glass. Pours a fairly transparent pale burnt orange with off-white head that dissipates into razor-thin lacing pretty quickly. Smells sweet with notes of Belgian yeast, caramel, nutmeg, and cinnamon with a bit of pumpkin in the background. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced. The pumpkin comes through more, but not in a good way. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Meh.

This beer tastes artificial and contrived. I imagine a Budweiser being altered with Mrs. Smith's pie filling.

It came in a variety pack with some of my favorite flavors and I wasnít too impressed. The only thing I enjoyed about it was the aroma. Had a good scent, but I wasnít very impressed with the taste. Itís not the worst beer by any means, itís just mediocre.

Not bad. Pours a nice orange. Aromas of nice sweet butter and pumpkin. Flavors fall short. No sweetness.. A bit bitter on the end. Average.
