A good pumpkin ale. Great aroma...not overpowering with the pumpkin. The spices (cinnamon, nutmeg) are more in the aroma as you taste it. A well-crafted brew.
The best thing about this was the aroma and appearance. Aroma of pumpkin with the cinnamon, clove and ginger showing up, all were nicely balanced. A deep amber body, plenty of carbonation that left good lacing. Average mouthfeel, flavor was a little disappointing with a little pumpkin showing up but as it warmed it got bland.

Pours a light golden amber with almost no head. Light pumpkin spice aromas. Flavor is sweet spicy with a little bitterness on the tail. Jabah (509) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
I can’t believe I’m rating a Michelob this high, but was one notch better than "just average" for me. Remember right after Halloween I wanted to buy another 6-pack, looking around few different grocery stores and Wal-Mart but were all out. During these economical times I have been trying to be more cost-effective with my beer purchases so this fits the category. For $6 and change per six I’m finding some of these new Mich flavors are well worth the price. Now to the actual beer. Dark orange with some amber color. Can see through the beer in a glass, so on the lighter side, but not TOO light. I thought it would be lighter until I poured it and saw it was 5.5%. Good flavor with cinnamin, pumpkin, and other spices...but not overwhelming. Medium carbonation with a light head. I will definitely buy this again if it comes out next season. ads135 (4923) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Orange and medium bodied with a thick chemically pumpkin flavor and a watery mouthfeel. slowrunner77 (12581) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 5, 2014
"one left over from the holiday, and addded to a recent tasting for shits and giggles. really, not as bad as my initial reaction when i found out this beer existed. the aroma is quite pleasant, if not terribly complex. lots of cinnomon and spices. looks ok. the feel, though, is too light, and takes away a little from what may be a decent flavor."

The head builds up tall and has a creamy off white color. It quickly fades down to a thin ring of lace around the edge of the glass. This head sits on top of a golden honey colored body with very good clarity. The aroma has a light grainy character with a lots of pumpkin pie spice mixed in. It has a bit hit of spice throughout with cinnamon being most noticeable over other pumpkin pie spices. Hop flavor seems neutral but it adds bitterness the cinnamon flavor. Underneath there is a mildly sweet malty flavor with some mild pumpkin flavor. The finishes quickly and has a grainy alcohol quality to it. The body is light to medium with a thin, watery and slick feel. Its carbonation is about average. Overall this is defiantly not a standout and its fairly heavy spicing can become a little bit overpowering. Ret12 (453) - Maryland, USA - MAY 17, 2013
This was a poor excuse for a pumpkin beer. Very light bodied with almost no spice flavor and no malt backbone. Lemke10 (993) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 23, 2013
This spiced pumpkin ale from Anheuser-Busch is probably one of their most interesting beers. Pours a golden amber with a slight scent of pumpkin. Drinks very smooth with a slight pumpkin taste however the spices stand out more. Not a bad beer by any means but there certainly is room for in improvement by increasing the strength of the pumpkin and spice taste. Still a good choice to get you into the fall mood.

Orange pour. Smells like pumpkin. Tastes like pumpkin. I like pumpkin pie. Just not for a drink

Found in my in-laws fridge. It poured a burnt orange color with a small white head. The aroma was pumpkiny with light spice and some dirt. The taste was light pumpkin with some sweet caramel and nutmeggy notes.
