[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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

Pumpkin Ales come out once a year. Their main purposeis it to celebrate the spices of the season. Some breweries make the pumpkin spice subltle but counter-act it with a hop variatle that best fits the style. Other brewers make the Pumpkin flavor dominant in a pleasent way. This brew had none of the above. Very weak in flavor. I Didnít think Pumpkin Ale when i was drinking it and definitly no complex flavor to make up for it. Tasted like a stronger amber ale..Bass Ale? John Courage maybe.

Served in highball glass rimmed with cinnamon sugar. Pumpkin taste was very subtle. Nice color - would drink again.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer tastes like the regular Blue moon except with some allspice thrown in. Pumpkin is very very subtle but some fruitiness is evident upfront. The spices become noticeable in the finish. An okay beer.
