Bottle. Pours clear amber with off white head. Nose of pumpkin, all spice and deodorant. Taste is pumpkin, banana and light all spice. Medium body. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 14, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear amber color with a short lived off-white head.
S: Not too shabby of an aroma. Lots and lots of spices, mostly cinnamon and all spice with a bit of nutmeg and clove. A slightly sweet malt note, maybe even a touch of vanilla. Surprising...
T: A definite vegetable/squash type flavor to it. A decent spiciness of cinnamon and all spice. There is a little bit of banana to it, interestingly. Maybe a touch watery, really my main knock on it.
M: Light in body with medium carbonation.
O: As much as I’d like to say otherwise, this was pretty decent. bhensonb (15188) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy orange/amber with a creamy near-beige head. Moderate pie spice aroma. Mostly nutmeg. Med minus body. It’s pie spice and detectable wheat. Maybe a bit too much clove. Certainly one of the better Shock Top ales. Ratman197 (14826) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2012

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy orange copper with a small frothy off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is cinnamon and spice. Thin mouthfeel with a clove and nutmeg flavor. Not much going on with this one.

Bottle. Poured hazy orange copper color with an average off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid doughy pumpkin pie aroma. Medium body with a creamy texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced bourbon sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Standout seasonal beer.

12 ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a very hazy orange color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of pumpkin and pumpkin spices. The taste is pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and very faint citrus and wheat. Thin-medium bodied. Pretty generic but not bad. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2011

Hazy orange-amber pour with a medium creamy white head that diminishes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet pumpkin spice and a bit of malt. Light body with flavors of pumpkin and grainy malt. The finish is short and sweet with a pumpkin aftertaste. Slightly above average overall. crossovert (12879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2014 Had just a taste. Just basically a thin pumpkin beer. It is pretty bad and seems a bit artificial.
