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.

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.
