Bottle. Nice orange color with little head. Aromas of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, and caramel malt, though all are more faint than I would prefer. Flavor is a fairly nice combination of all of these, though overall it is a bit thin and watery. A fun seasonal, but it has potential for more.

Pours a translucent amber/orange with an average size off white head. Aroma is pumpkin, probably more pumpkin than some of the Pumpkin Ales Iíve had. But less pumpkin pie smell (I like more of the pumpkin pie smell in my pumpkin ales). Some nutmeg in the aroma as well. Flavor is again the pumpkin, and other pumpkin pie spices (but not that well balanced). Also picking up some corn in the flavor. Even though it was a pumpkin ale it still had that macro brew taste in there, cannot pinpoint exactly what it is, but it is there. A decent pumpkin ale, not up to speed with some of the others out there though.

The most pumpkin comparison I can make of Brew Moonís offering is the autumn orange color. Just a dash of spice and pumpkin flavor.

Out of a bottle. So I wanted a comparison against another pumpkin ale. This one loses. Aroma wasnít much. Poured a nice amber at least had that going for it. Flavor was okay just not much to speak about, a slight hint of nutmeg and cinnamon but thatís it. Palate was ok nothing special either.

[bottle] Pours a dark amber, with a small head that runs away quickly. I thought the pumpkin flavor was lacking big time. Its almost not there at all. This is sort of a utmeg infused Blue Moon. I canít say Iím a fan.

Ok overall but rather average. No head and little lacing; amber-rust color. Aroma is pleasantly malty and fruity but has just a hint of pumpkin. Flavor is almost the same as the aroma, perhaps a bit sweeter but rather in the corn sense. Ok silky body with lots of tiny carbonation. Get it if itís on sale.

theshocker (329) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 26, 2005
Aweful. Simply aweful. Smells like pepto-bismol and rubbing alcohol. Tastes neither like pumpkin or pumpkin pie. Thin in the mouth, leaves a nasty aftertaste. Canít believe I have 5 more of these.

Poured a dark orange that inspired my drinking partner to shout "Itís orange!" Nice poofy head. Bready consistency. Bit of a pumpkin pie flavor with a tinge of nutmeg, but not obtuse or overpowering. Almost comes off with a metallic caramel twist.
