Bottle. Smells strongly of pumpkin, tastes of nutmeg and other spice. Pours murky amber with a little sediment. Aftertaste is just like a regular beer. Not bad.

Draught pint at the Stagecoach Bar on 23-Oct12015. Served with cinnamon sugar around the rim. Hazy, orange amber colour with a small head. Aroma of spiced pumpkin and cinnamon. Friity oumkin flavour. OK, but a little bland. Didnt see the attraction myself.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat has a thick, frothy, off-white head, a mostly clear, bubbly, gold-orange appearance, which gets a descending, gray cloud, once the caked sediment is swished loose and poured in. No lacing left behind. The aroma is of spiced pumpkin bread and spiced candle. Taste is of pumpkin pulp, subdued spices, white wheat bread, and just a touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat finishes on the dry side. RJT

Bottle from Albertsons. Nothing special here, but not totally gross either. Just about as generic as you can get. At least itís not a pumpkin pie spice overload....

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very cloudy orange color. Pretty big white head, goes away quick. Nothing exciting here.
Aroma is weird. Itís like a can of pumpkin pie mix. Yes, I smell pumpkin, and spices, and crust. But it doesnít smell like pie. Itís light on the nose.
I taste lots of crust. Nutmeg is pretty strong. Thereís other spices too, but not so easy to pick out. Pumpkin is there, but not too strong. I guess itís malty in taste. Iím not sure.
Mouthfeel is pretty good. Itís pretty smooth and pretty drinkable. Itís creamy. It finishes slightly spicy.
Overall Iím not particularly a fan. Itís like most if not all Shock Tops, not memorable. I wonder if all Shock Tops start off as one and flavoring is added to make the product. But thereís something off about this. Itís okay, but it could stand to be more bold, or more spicy, or something. Anything. I really didnít like it at first, but Iíve changed my tune as Iíve had more and more. If you want a pumpkin beer, try something else.
