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 don’t 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 it’s 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.

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 it’s mostly spice that you’ll note, but it’s a drinkable beer.

Tastes like a pumkin pie beer. The nutmeg overpowers everything. Hint of cinnamon. Shitty beer.

Really nice looking red copper with a cream head. Faint spice aroma. Taste is caramel and spice. Really not that bad.

Nuffield (3664) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Caramel color; quickly fading head. Very light spice flavors, barely suggesting winter spices. The only obvious flavor dimension here is sweetness. Nothing that suggests apple to me. Mainstream fizzy palate. Lightly metallic. Mostly drinkable but dull. Bottle.

Surprisingly bland. Exhibits slight apple but aroma and taste need more fruit, caramel and spice.
