Amber pour. The nose is intensely spicy with lots of cinnamon and clove over a nice amber malt base. A little bit of sweet malt aroma as well. Fortunately the flavour is nowhere as sweet as it smells. Medium-bodied. A nice lingering sweet spiciness with a kiss of lingering earthiness on the back. Well-balanced and quite tasty. Not a bad pumpkin ale at all. ThaJuggernaut (309) - Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2011
Had this beer about 3 years ago at a halloween party. Decent overall beer with a pumpkin spice to it. Aroma is obviously pumpkin spice DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Poured into a pint glass.
4.0 A: Reasonably attractive. Nice frothy head with decent retention. Orange amber in color. Decent amount of lacing.
3.5 S: Pumpkin pie with all the spices (cinnamon foremost). Sweet malty tones.
3.0 T: Surprisingly not too bad. Not the greatest beer backbone, but alright. Bready malts and a hint of hop bitterness. Spiced, but not overly so (I like overspiced pumpkin beers).
2.0 M: Light body. Good carbonation, just not hearty enough. I like thick, chewy pumpkin beers. This one disappoints in that regard.
3.0 D: Not terrible, but not something I’d want to drink much of.
I’m surprised I like this as much as I do. Michelobe has to be one of the worst brands in beer.
P.S. I didn’t buy this, it was a gift. I feel compelled to mention that.

Copper/orange in color. Clear. Tons of bubbles rising. White, fizzy, thin head that hung around for only a short minute, then settled to a thin ring. A bit of lacing. Sweet smelling malt. Cinnamon and gingerbread. Not getting a whole lot of the pumpkin. Some is there, but not much. The sweet smell is a touch overpowering to me. A little more of the pumpkin in the taste, but it seems to be dominated by the cinnamon and ginger. Some additional spices of somekind. Maybe the clove. Just a bit too sweet for my liking. It does taste a bit artificial to me also. Adjuncts, I guess? Medium/thin mouthfeel. Doesn’t leave an over abundance on the palate. It is smooth, but it is also mostly watery. This is a brew that I will probably never drink again. Too sweet and artificial tasting. Some may find it enjoyable, but I just don’t care for it. rougeau13 (3015) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Clear orange-amber with a small white head. Smells like caramel malt and toejam with spices. Taste is a little pumpkin spice (nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger...), but mostly its sweet malt. Body is closer to medium than I’d expect, given the brewer, but it feels like its leaving a chalky film on the back of my teeth. It’s definitely one of A-Bs better beers, but I still wouldn’t go so far as to call it good.

smells like wet dog. grain, wish it had more flavor, but it’s okay. decent for a cheap pumpkin beer. anderson01 (356) - Spirit Lake, Idaho, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Has a small head with decent lacing. Bright orange in color. Taste like a lager with a hint of pumpkin and cinnamon. Beer was highly carbonated, watery and thin bodied. Overall a good beer to have while watching a movie but could not drink all night. garrison (812) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Purchased from "Kellers IGA" in Cincinnati, Ohio - Alright, this one poured an orangw brew with a rapid fading white head and a strong pumpkin pie aroma! Tastewise, it lacked a lot of body, but the upfront taste was fine! Nimrod979 (212) - Hagerstown, Maryland, USA - NOV 24, 2010
Light amber in color, tiny white head that disappears quickly. Aroma of caramel malts, pumpkin, and spice. Flavor is pretty much the same. A little watery and thin on he palate, but thats what I would expect from Anheuser-Busch. Not great but not bad. JJAlexander (46) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - NOV 17, 2010
