Served from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. The closest thing I could find to a date was "112 43 BF02", which means nothing to me.
A: Amber brown/orange color, cloudy (when poured as instructed), 3 fingers of off-white head sprouts up with huge bubbles and quickly disappears with zero lacing.
S: Smells sweet, with pumpkin and spice, notes of cinnamon and nutmeg.
T: Tastes just like it smells. It's certainly interesting, especially for an allegedly A-B product. Clear pumpkin and pumpkin spice - cinnamon and nutmeg, finishes on the dry side with a very pumpkin aftertaste with hints of spice, but not a lot else to it. The label shows an orange lice with a mohawk, but I'm not picking up on too much orange here (if any?).
M: Medium bodied, medium carbonation, slightly chewy, sticks a little, slightly watery, goes down smooth as silk.
O: I'm going to go ahead and give this an overall 4/5. It's not a bad beer, it's a pretty good seasonal beer actually. If it's made by A-B then I'm actually pretty impressed considering, although it claims to be brewed by Shock Top Brewing Co. I visited their website and was unable to find any evidence that this was indeed an A-B company, so I think A-B might just be their distributor, though I could be wrong.
I thought this beer was overall pleasantly aromatic and tasty - it's a pumpkin-themed beer, and it tastes like pumpkin for sure. It definitely lives up to the theme.

Sampling right now after bowling on 3/4/14. I have had this one a few times in the past but has been about 2 years ago and bought last autumn and finally made it's way from the back of the beer cooler to the front. LOL! Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F and poured into a pilsner flute glass.
Pours a orange-amber in color with a thin white head that lasts the whole drink. Some spotty lacing is seen. Small steaming bubbles rising up from the bottom of the glass the whole time. but perfect carbonation actually. The aroma is of very light pumpkin and spices (mostly cloves). The taste is about the same with more spices of cloves & nutmeg coming out then the light pumpkin and wheat flavor. No harsh or bitter aftertaste. Overall, it wasn't bad.
