2.81/5  rDev -8.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Unlike some reviews, I liked this beer.

Poured it into a pint glass and had to poor slowly as it developed a 2 to 3 finger head that was off white to slightly tan in color. Thick head with a slight rocky top appearance. The lacing was still visible on the upper part of the glass when I was half through with the beer. The head lasted for 3 to 5 minutes before dissipating.

I could definitely detect the pumpkin in the smell until my nose became desensitized to the smell.

The pumpkin came out more in the finish than in the liquid on the tounge. I could detect some citrus flavors as well. All in all, a very smooth and drinkable beer.

The beer had nice body and a medium mouthfeel.

Overall I liked this beer and would not hesitate to order it again.

UPDATE!!!
After trying this beer in a restaurant I bought a 6 pack. It must have been from an entirely different batch. This time the pumpkin and spice aroma was very strong, and the flavor was extremely sweet and syrupy. Carbonation was almost non existent and it poured up with no head at all. Maybe this was just a bad bottle. Not sure, but now I am hesitant to even open the remainder, however I will in order to give this beer a third chance.

3.51/5  rDev +14%
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.
