This amber-colored flavored ale is brewed only in the autumn and combines the flavor of vine-ripened pumpkin pie flavor with traditional crystal malt.

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.

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.

Their slogan should be, "Itís not that bad." Spices are muted, not overdone. Pumpkin is not perceptable. Tastes like a middle of the road amber ale with a few spices in it. Not bad once a year when you first feel the chill of autumn.

Orange/amber color, foamy off white head. Smells sweet and floral. I am surprised that I dont smell much spice commonly associated with pumpkin ales. Very metallic flavor at first that gives way to a very dry feel. Not too bad really. Not over the top spicy like some seem to be, but I was really hoping for more myself. Kind of a sour seltzer water taste really. Once you keep drinking it the aftertaste seems to take over your entire mouth and that is all that you taste.

Pours a nice dark hazy orange color with a good amount of froathy white head. Aroma is a bit metallic, sweet, very slight pumpkin spices, and a bit of coriander. Flavor is light and watery with a bit of creamy pumpkin spice. Overall, my first pumpkin beer, not too shabby but i think there are better ones out there.

A good try at a specilaty beer but not quite the winner I thought it was going to be. A huge display at the beer store and wow I thought this was going to hit me good. Hazy, very weak head, slight pumpkin taste slight is the key word. A cood dark amber color with very little flavor. I think coors missed on this beer.

I had to pick this one up this year as I have missed it in years past. Poured a dark and slightly hazy orange. The aroma is caramel and canned pumpkin with a hint of nutmeg. The taste is light pumpkin and nutmeg. There is a weird dry finish of dirt. Artificial tasting campared to some other pumpkin beers I have had.

Much more mild in flavor than some of the pumpkin beers iíve had, which is kinda nice not to be overpowered with spice, but this one has a bad beer flavor behind it. Honestly in this one more spice might have actually hid the bad base beer behind it. Pours medium amber with a white head. Medium body, with a medium spiced finish.
