2.9/5  rDev -5.2%

Appearance: Caramel colored, decent but quickly disappearing head. Lacing is fair, and there's a little bit of carbonation going on.

Smell: Spice. Almost smells like a pumpkin ale.

Taste: Cinnamon, caramel, malts.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, slightly sticky. A hint of apple in the aftertaste.

The Verdict: Not bad. A little different, a bit funky. I don't see myself ever ordering one, but it is drinkable. Kind of a variation on a pumpkin ale more than anything else.

Pours opaque copper amber. The thin khaki head quickly disappears completely and leaves almost no lace.

The smell is of caramel malt, cinnamon and a hint of apple juice.

The taste is of grains, cinnamon and apple juice.

The texture is light bodied with medium carbonation.

Decent. This offering has potential. But, in classic Blue Moon fashion, the aromas and flavors come across as watered down and underachieving.

Looking forward to this brew. Caramel apple? MMMMMM.

Serving style : 12 oz glass bottle poured into glass for appearance.

Appearance (3) : Whoa, foam almost overflowed on this one. Like a rootbeer float, you know? Deep caramel color with a fluffy yellowish white head about three fingers high. As it recedes it leaves a few licks of lacing. Again with the moldy appearance left on top after the foam recedes. Unappealing, a bit like the Harvest Pumpkin Ale. Knocking it down half a point for that.

Smell (2) : Sour rotten grains, hint of rotten apple, touch of caramel. Some plastic left in the hot sun. Smells a lot like the Pumpkin ale but somehow a little more rotten. Slight booze in the nose, too.

Taste (2) : Not at all like caramel apple. Boozy, light nutmeg and caramel flavors, mixed with an artificial granny smith back taste. Smooth and drinkable but my initial response is to want to pour this one. Not enjoyable one bit. It is slightly more tolerable out of the bottle.

Mouthfeel (2.5) : Creamy with an underlying carbonation. Carbonation is sharp and nettlesome.

Overall (2.24) : A fail. I do not like this beer Sam, I am. The moldy appearance on the top after the head recedes is so off-putting, it's like I left iced tea in the den and forgot about it for 4 days. The flavor is awful, and the mouthfeel isn't far ahead of it. If they sold this in six pack bottles people would demand that this be taken off the market. I'm glad I only got two of these in my variety pack.
