A little better than what I'm used to getting from an Anheuser-Busch beer, this pumpkin ale is brewed with pumpkin rather than pumpkin being added later (Shipyard, I'm looking at you) which is certainly appreciated (and expected). Smell is pleasant, with a good balance of pumpkin and spice but not much complexity. This doesn't taste much like the wheat beer that it is, maybe because the yeast drowns out the wheat. Pumpkin and spice taste good but not all that fresh or interesting. Mouthfeel is relatively thin for a pumpkin ale, but it goes down well and the aftertaste is simple, with just a touch of spice lingering. Overall, this isn't remarkable by any means. It is simple and decent.
