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.....

Pours a cloudy tea color with poor lacing and head retention. Smells of yeast and wheat, with a subtle pumpkin odor. Tastes like pumpkin, but very mild. Below average to say the least.

Bottle at Brian’s. pretty nice nose. Nutmeg dominated I think. More of the same in the palate. A little light but decent. Underrated.

Aroma of pumpkin spice, caramel malts, potpourri... Mouthfeel is thin and watery... Light pumpkin spice, watery flavor... Minimal pumpkin... Overall a watery, unimpressive beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

TheCaptMatey (66) - Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2014
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.

BiereLuc (938) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
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.
