Hazed orange amber pour, with a thin sparse head of off-white. Savory plant-like malty aroma. Bright, effervescent, bubbly malt flavor, with a slight pumpkiny plant flavor on the back end. More like chewing on a tomato stem over malt and a hint of hops. Fruity with good ester notes. Palate lemony and crisp.

Very light spice aroma. Wheat taste and a dry finish. This is very similar in taste to the Wit. A lightest flavor of pumpkin in the finish.

I had 4 pumpkin ales in the past 2 days, this was one of the 2 best. The best thing about the Blue moon ale was the pumpkin and spice flavors were subtle. Some malt in there ... not much hop but thats OK in this beer.

Bottle. Best before: 01/29/06, I think. Pours a deep orange with a medium-sized, fizzy, sandy-colored head. Sweet malts dominate the aroma with some pumpkin and cinnamon. Light body. Sweet malts and some pumpkin along with enough spiciness in the finish to taste close to how a pumpkin beer should. Nice balance. Decent. Just way too thin, watery and overly carbonated.

Found this to be very drinkable, nice amber look, decent light aroma and flavor of pumpkin and spice. I thought it was a bit too light though, just not enough of the good stuff for this type. I prefer Michigan Brew Company’s pumpkin.

SB (334) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2005 From bottle to glass: Poured medium amber, with little white head that disappeared quickly. Aroma of pumpkin and spice. Taste was very much pumpkin all the way through, finishing with spicies, nutmeg. This went down very smooth, and I enjoyed two! This is a very nice pumpkin ale and I will enjoy many more throughout the fall.
Re-Rated Due to tasting a better pumpkin beer.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Odd color, more auburn-mahogany. Some pumpkin and cinnamon in the nose, but some strange bitterness and caramel that seem odd. Odd malts, toffee’s there along with pumpkin and allspice/nutmeg. Finishes a bit sour. Not grand.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2009 Goes down smooth and has a very nice spicy pumpkin taste to it. Look forward to next autumn to get this again

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Pours a bright copper/orange/amber with a big creamy, lacy, off-white head. Smells spicy, lightly bitter with aromas of pumpkin and cinnamon. Tastes spicy and sweet. Lots of pumpkin flavors in the body with a bitter finish. Medium bodied with a spicy pumpkin aftertaste. A bit creamy. This isn’t bad for the style but the style is not for me. Not one I’d care to sample again.
