Shock Top – Pumpkin Wheat (2012)

27 Aug

AlexAA: cloudy, rusty copper, with lots of carbonation bubbles present, smells almost sour, and a whiff of bananas 4/10

AlexTM: How odd. There’s no pumpkin to this but also no spice. It’s frothy ale with a body of nothing, and a bitter finish. What the what? 1/10

AlexP: How many pumpkins does it take to brew a pumpkin wheat ale that neither smells nor tastes of pumpkin? 0/10 is correct.

AlexO: This is a mass-produced beer frauding as a craft. A non-beer, which is worse than a bad beer. If you’re going to suck, suck big. 13/100

NicAA: Hazy amber with no head and lots of particulates. Smells of sweet malt, a tiny hint of pumpkin, not really getting any spice. 6/10

NicTM: Thin, highly carbed. Again not detecting much spice, there’s a little cinnamon +hint of nutmeg. Odd bitter chemical aftertaste.       5/10

NicP: A bit of pumpkin in the aroma, but I’m not really tasting it.Actually it’s difficult to taste anything past the odd chemical taste. 1p

NicO: Too high carb, weird chemical aftertaste. Maybe I wouldn’t hate this so much if I was five beers deep but on a fresh palate, sucks. 38
