I hate drinking macrobrews almost as much as I hate reviewing them...especially the macrobrews that pretend to be craft beers...but someone left this gem in my fridge after a little get-together last weekend. So here goes.
A: I wish BA would put appearance on a lower scale or something. I have to give this a decent score on appearance which will inflate it beyond what it should be, final score-wise. Oh well. It's a decent looking pumpkin beer. Deep amber with small, soapy head, leaving no lacing.
S: Hmm. Strange. I get banana up front (maybe because it's a wheat..maybe). I also get fake pumpkin flavoring, cloves, and other Thanksgiving spices.
T: You get the fake pumpkin and spices again on the front end, but after that it's pretty much that taste you get after playing drinking games with Natural [insert ice, light, etc] in college.
M: A little too carbonated and light bodied.
Serving type: bottle
