3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a brown/orange body and leaves a small one finger off-white head that dies within a half minute. Some spotty lacing is left and the body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising.
The smell had some bitter pumpkin notes with some slight spices such as nutmeg, clove and cinnamon.
The taste had the previously mentioned flavors with some light malts entering in.
On the palate, it sat about a medium with slight harshness on the tongue.
Overall, this is an average pumpkin beer. I’ll drink the rest, but probably won’t seek it out again.

The smell is revolting. The taste isn’t all that much better. I had to give up drinking this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to whomever left this gem after a party at my house. Drank from my bedroom while working at home during this snowstorm. Taste is your run of the mill pumpkin beers; nutmeg, cinnamon, heavy caramel malts, etc, etc. Actually not bad, but I have been over the pumpkin beers for about 3 months already. Still one of the better Blue Moon brews.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep amber pour with a thin white head. The aroma is quite spicy. Nutmeg, clove and cinnamon skin with some light sweet malt. A touch fruity with a bit of lingering earthy bitterness. Inoffensive.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gold pour, small offwhite head.
Sort of nasty aroma. Something definitely off there.
Smooth pumpkin spicy flavor. Actually pretty decent flavor.
Sort of soapy mouthfeel.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Used to think this was an okay pumpkin ale. Then I tried some okay pumpkin ales and even some pretty good ones. This example just doesn’t have the balance, smoothness, and diversity of flavor that some others offer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from the bottle. Aroma is very mild, but the pumpkin is clearly there along with some cinnamon and clove. Slightly sweet and a bit watery as expected. Pretty ok beer.
