1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Amber and copper under a minimal biscuit hued head that does not inspire.
Subtly sweet with sauced apples with caramel and cinnamon essence. Cold cinnamon apple pie. Pie crust.
Light and sweet and rather unimpressive. Nondescript apple and malt sweetness with a feeble hint of spice. Cold applesauce in the back of each swallow and finish.
And thatís that. Multiple sniffs and sips and there is nothing else to find. I expected quite a bit more from this special craft beer brewed much in the same vein as the Samuel Adams Sample A/Sample B. I could have voted and made my say as to which was my favorite, but I had no favorites and liked none of them. Itís a shame, really.

Nose is light with baking spice aromas. Medium bodied with flavors of apple, caramel malt, cinnamon ans nutmeg. Reminiscent of a cider, but not sweet. Interesting and surprisingly quite good!

Drank in Blue Moon variety pack. Poors an apple juice golden-red. Bitter, sour apple, caramel, almost overpowering spice (cloves maybe?). The least impressive of the Autumn variety pack.

Ok not as good as I was hoping guess I wanted caramel apples in a bottle.... Had this three different times last time thought I was drinking pumpkin ale and could not tell a difference really. Heavy on the cinnamon I would imagine the caramel and apple are hard flavors to get in a bottle of beer. Carmel hops I guess. It was good and drinkable not envelope pushing by any means but better than average just pretty close to Pumpkin ale

12oz bottle - pours caramel with a finger of tan head and thin lacing. Nose is caramel and cinnamon. Flavor adds sour apple and mild spiciness. Slight bitter finish but mainly a sweet brew with some sourness. Easy to drink and light sticky mouthfeel. Usually donít care for the style, but this quite drinkable.

12 oz. bottle. It pours amber in color with an off white head. The aroma is like apple cider. Lots of apples and mildly spiced with noticeable cinnamon and nutmeg. So far itís exactly as advertised. The flavor is pretty much the same. Strong apples and spices, mild caramel and a rather weak body. Nothing too wrong with this one, other than being a little too cloyingly sweet without the body to back it up.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a very dark orange with minimal head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices and light apple. Taste is light sweet and light tart. Pumpkin pie spices and some tart apple. Minimal caramel. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Better than most blue moon brews.

Perfect for a fall seasonal however, rather reminiscent of pumpkin pie beers. The apple is mild, and itís mostly spice that youíll note, but itís a drinkable beer.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tastes like a pumkin pie beer. The nutmeg overpowers everything. Hint of cinnamon. Shitty beer.
