Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat Ale
There's no doubt Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat Ale ($8 for four) contains pumpkin, from its funky, gourd scent to the starchy-sweet flavor. However, the lack of spices and the sharp finish knock it back a few stars. We'd sip this at a party, but it's not our go-to autumnal beer.
