I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. I can’t handle to much pumpkin but I do enjoy a little pumpkin in beer during the festive fall.
aroma- has a nutty pumpkin smell to it.
appearance- looks nice with a decent head
taste- Pumpkin with wheat just as you would guess.
palate- good co2 on it with the ability to drink a couple...not a few though....
Overall I would reach for another one down the road.....

Aroma: pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg. Appearance: clear Amber, small, creamy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: spices continue, light sweets come up, lively carbonation. Overall: OK Pumpkin Ale, nothing too spectacular though. Bottle at Admiral’s Club First Class, JFK Airport.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured an orange to amber colour with a thin white head. Light aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon spices, malted wheat, and faint notes of pumpkin. Flavor is a decent balance of pumpkin and spices, but these seasonal flavors are unbalanced against this beers wheat roots. Light to medium beer with light carbonation. Not a bad brew, but could improve with balance among its base flavors.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bière d’une orangé assez franc et rare, trouble et peu mousseuse. Le nez est en épices (les épices de pas mal toutes les bières à la citrouille - cannelle, muscade, piment de la Jamaïque...). Et le tout se traduit en bouche dans un cocktail plutôt mince et pétillant. En gros, on vient amoindrir le profil assez peu extraordinaire d’une Shock Top traditionnelle avec quelques épices qui confèrent du caractère sans nous faire oublier la vraie nature. Je suis étonné de reconnaître la Shock Top de base en arrière-plan.

It takes that nasty shock top wheat beer and puts not a terrible amount of pumpkin and spice upon it. So, really, probably the best shock top I?ve had. Not saying a ton there, but still.

Not worth. Poor pumpkin flavour mixed with poor beer flavour make for a poor beer in general. Decent pumpkin aroma though.

First pumpkin beer I’ve ever tried. was not let down. I think last years was better than this years but still good.

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.

"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."
