One of my favorite pumpkin ales. The spices are exactly to my taste - not overpowering in aroma or taste. The one aspect of this beer that I feel is missing is the mouth feel. There is no cream, no body. But, when you take into account this beer is coming in at 5.7%, it goes down awfully smooth. Great beer. I hate to say this, but go Cooooooors!

It reminds me of a free Thanksgiving gift basket. The nose is spicy and if you'd like to call pumpkin a fruit, fruity. Nice off white head that disappeared fairly quick. Lacing is sparse but present. Taste is Fall seasonal spices, nutmeg, allspice, coriander? Pumpkin and maybe vanilla. Mouth feel is a bit dry. Overall after being scared away from pumpkin ale after the Shocktop incident I believe Blue moon has rebuilt my confidence. Cheers! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells good. Spice and roastiness. Looks beautiful. Crystal clear Auburn orange with a foamy off white head that fades pretty quickly. Thin mouthfeel with an edge on the finish. Some spice and veggie earthiness. Mostly pretty flat. It comes close to almost having some character but just falls short.

From a bottle. Pours hazy copper with a thick, creamy off white head. Tastes like pumpkin, creamy, foamy, wheat, orange citrus, and light spice. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like pumpkin, wheat, musky straw and orange.

Unclear light orange amber with slight white head. Aroma is pumpkin and spices. Light watery body. Not a lot of flavor. Not much happening on the palate. Much better options out there.

Deep amber hue. Thin head. Like any Blue Moon offering (an Iím not a fan) it is unimpressive. It has the adjunct macro taste of a MillerCoors beer with the label and price of a pseudo-craft. Very minimal hint of caramel malts with the expected pumpkin spice added in...presumably as a syrup latein the brewing process.

I didnít get much off the aroma. The flavor was just eh. There was a touch of pumpkin yes. That Blue Moon finish really didnít leave me happy.

Pretty good. To me, the flavor is artificial and generic, but it tastes and smell good. Reminds me of air freshener you buy for the fall... sort of.
