I get some smells of fall spices in there with some vegetable pumpkin and faint cinnamon. I get the musty spices on the tongue with some nutmeg clove and cinnamon in there and then the graininess from the malt and ending with the slight vegetable pumpkin taste.
It ends dry and ends up being a very drinkable beer. The only downfall of it is it kinda has a watery body. They really make it still taste like a beer with the typical Yuengling, Budweiser malty graininess. I don't really detect much hops unless they are melding together with the spices really well.
I also forgot to mention that I can tell its a wheat beer and can notice the wheat smell and tastes in there as I drink it more and more. Definitely a surprise from the makers of Budweiser.

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.
