This Blue Moon offering had the aroma of canned pumpkin pie filling--especially heavy on the clove, bready, with some lemon. The smell was probably my favorite aspect of this beer. It was like lighting some kind of an autumn-themes Yankee Candle under my nose.

The taste followed the aroma pretty closely. There was a very obvious canned pumpkin flavor--that processed, spicy, distinct flavor, although this didn't translate into something delicious. I found it sickeningly sweet with a lot of malt.

The mouthfeel was especially unpleasant. It was syrupy and lingered in my mouth in an unpleasant way.

Like the rest of Blue Moon's offerings, it's an attempt to make beer palatable to the widest possible audience, making it the safest, least offensive, lowest-common-denominator beer you will find. In other words, it's the Nickelback of beer. It's drinkable, but that's the nicest thing I can bring myself to say about it.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into a frosted mug.

A: A nice amber, orangish color with clumpy, scattered lacing sticking around the top of the mug.

S: Pumpkin takes a back seat to the spices. Immediately pick up nutmeg, followed by cloves.

T: Follows the scent. The spices hit the palate first followed by pumpkin with no real alcohol kick.

M: Under carbonated, with a bready feel that lingers on the tongue after the swallow.

O: A decent fall seasonal beer. Kind of reminds me of Leinie's Oktoberfest. Enjoy by the campfire.

Poured into a pint glass. Pours copper with a thick off-white head that dissipates at a moderate pace. There are some visible tiny bubbles in the beer. I detect faint aromas of those pumpkin pie spices (cloves, allspice, and nutmeg). I get some of the malt in the smell as well. There is some mild pumpkin flavor in the beer and I get the malt with just some of those pumpkin pie spices. Everything about the flavor is mild, but this is certainly more of a malty pumpkin ale. The body is light with moderate carbonation. The finish is crisp and clean. This is an average beer and not a good representation of the style.

Pours a hazy burnt orange, moderate cap of off-white foam, gone quickly. Pale notes of grain blend with mild pumpkin and firm seasonal cinnamon, clove and ginger. Taste very light, mild notes of pumpkin and spice on a weakly malted base beer. Fizzy, light. Not one of the best representations of a pumpkin ale... simply a weak, fizzy beer with a splash of the season.
