Aroma is average... fairly decent head, orangy brown appearance. Great smell... strong of pumpkin. Reminds me of a brewers best kit i made.. pumpkin spice porter. Palate is light. Not bad.

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.

Itís pretty good for a pumpkin beer. Itís a good cold weather brew. Pumpkin spice and cinnamon are prevelent. Itís decent.

Btl pours a light amber color with a fizzy white head that vanished quickly leaving no lace. Smells of spice nutmeg,cloves and ginger with a hint of vegetal gourd aroma. Tastes of pumpkin pie ,cinnamon,nutmeg,brown sugar,crust and squash. Light body,under carbonated,watery mouthfeel and a tingly,spicy finish. Beer has nice aromas, a decent pumpkin pie flavor. The light body and weird mouthfeel just donít work for me. The spices are not overwhelming. It is drinkable but probably wonít try again.

Considering the local temperature in the 90ís fall is in the air and in this case in the bottle. Pours a thick cloudy carmel color, strong aroma of pumpkin and spice. much like pumpkin pie in a bottle but the taste does not last and goes a bit flat. very little bitterness. overall not abad beer.

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.
