The pumpkins caught my eye in the grocery store today. The price tag even moreso. I love pumpkin beers so I figured I'd see how bad Coors messes my beloved style up. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Duvel Tulip.
A - Not a bad looking beer by any means. Pretty clear orange amber color with an offwhite head that rose about 2 fingers with a pretty rigorous pour. This beer laces a little bit, but tends to slide down the glass eventually.
S - Meh. Can't smell anything beside wheat and grassy malts. Definitely no pumpkin or clove smell.
T - No pumpkin flavor. I don't think in a blind taste test I could tell that it is a pumpkin beer. I do, however, get the spices advertised on the label and the taste turns out to be half decent... but not marketed as a pumpkin beer.
M - Thicker than I thought it would be but still lighter than I like pumpkin beers to be. Carbonation is pretty much spot on.
O - I feel like this beer would be much better received if it wasn't labeled as a pumpkin beer. If it were just blue moon harvest ale and just contained spices I wouldn't have had many problems with it because it does that nicely for its price/brewery.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Reddish copper. Decent head at first. No lace remains.
Smell: Spice, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
Taste: Pumpkin and spices.
Not bad. The smell is slightly better than the taste, but not by much. The nutmeg is very clear in the smell. The taste of pumpkin is light, but there's a definite bite to the drink with spices. I'm impressed. Although I wouldn't probably get it again, I am impressed from this Blue Moon offering.
