    Pumpkin beers can be all over the place depending on how important the brewer thinks the spices are. This is a case where the brewer forgot that the spices even exist. While the nice copper hue looks good in a glass, the metallic aromas take away from the experience, while the flavour is weak malt and squash.

    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 is 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.

    Should have tried this first and not O'Fallon or BUffalo Bill's pumpkin ales as this one didn't stand up to either. It wasn't terrible but it did not have nearly the flavor of the two mentioned.

    An orange amber colored beer with a big creamy textured off white head rising above. Some decent hang time. But no lacing at all. The beer is all about autumn pumpkin spices. Cloves mostly in the nose and taste. Nothing complex as I’ve come to appreciate in this seasonal style. Where this macro coporation beer falls really short, though is the thin, nearly watery body.

    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.

    Poured a bright burnt orange color with a slight and very short lived head that left no lacing. I must say I was very dissapointed with this ale. I detected a little bit of clove but otherwise there was absolutely no flavor. A total waste of money. Im a Oktoberfest / fall seasonal fanatic and have tried many! This was probably the most dissapointing. DONT BOTHER!

    Odd that I haven’t rated this one yet. For the past 2 years I seem to buy a sixer of it during the month of October. It’s not horribly bad, and it does kinda feel right to drink during that month. Sure, it’s no Pumking but it’s not horrible. So the bottle I found on the shelf already wasn’t bad. I don’t know if it was fresh or from last year, but it wen’t down pretty easy. A light vegie sweetness, with some pumpkiny-extract/cinnamon aroma. A medium sweet beer, with some light nutmeg, vanilla and cinnamon flavor but all seemed really watered down. Sweetness was the main attraction with this beer. I can drink a few bottles before getting sick of it.

    A good beer to have near Halloween, as it is a great autumn beer. The taste is of pumpkin spices, and pumpkin pie. Can taste the pie type flavor when consumed. Also good to have at Thanksgiving.

    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.

    Poured into a pint glass from a 12 oz. bottle. Strangely for A-B, I couldn't find a "brewed on" date, unless it was on the six pack (I just got a single). The pour is like I would expect, a golden orange with a decent white head. There is just a bit of lacing. The nose is like a pumpkin pie--there are plenty of spices, the pumpkin itself and some bready notes. Unfortunately, the taste loses the pumpkin pie feel. The initial taste is sweet, but then everything, even the pumpkin, takes a back seat to cinnamon. A mild bitterness becomes present at the same time as the cinnamon overpowers everything. Mouthfeel is thin and watery without too much carbonation. Drinkability is low--the cinnamon is just too overpowering. Without as much cinnamon, this would be a good, inexpensive example of the style. As it is, I had a hard time finishing the 12 oz. bottle.
