Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale pours a gold-to-brown color into my pilsner glass. Atop the slightly hazy liquid sits a 1/4", light tan head that slowly dissipates. Moderate carbonation, no lacing. The smell is dominated by the pumpkin (and pumpkin spice) aromas: cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. There are small amounts of malt and citrus hop aromas as well.
The taste is similarly dominated by the various pumpkin-related flavors. At times, it's a bit hard to find the typical beer flavors; those that are represented are little more than generic sweet malt and a mild hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is very light, carbonated, and wet; finishes with a blandly pumpkin-ish aftertaste.
This is the first time I've had more than a sample of a Pumpkin Ale; I'd probably enjoy it a bit more if I liked pumpkin pie. However, I think this beer would be pretty good if paired with appropriate foods for the style.
