12oz bottle poured into Duvel tulip. Smudged date probably on neck.

Appearance - Medium offwhite head with medium-low retention and little to no lacing. Clear brown-amber body with slight carbonation. 3

Smell - Pumpkin spice,typical in style with a body of hay. Sweetness and vanilla too. 3.75

Taste - Perfume and alcohol. No body to it, just harsh chemical flavorings all around. 1.75

Mouthfeel - Very thin and astringent. 1.5

Overall - Barely passable even as the gimmick that it is. 1.75

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Look: Normal amber with a lot of visible carbonation. Decent white head that quickly dissipates.

Smell: Spiced pumpkin, citrus, and wheat mash.

Taste: Very mild pumpkin flavor...and that's about it. It's like carbonated water with the essence of pumpkin. No real malt or hop flavor.

Mouthfeel: Average thickness, high carbonation.

Overall: Disappointing. While I'm not sure a strong pumpkin flavor would be great, I didn't expect it to be so weak as to be worthless.

A frothy creamy three finger head with okay retention. The head does dissipate rather quickly and leaves no lacing on the glass. The color of the beer is SRM 10 a pale amber to a medium amber with copper hues. The clarity of the beer is clear with a ton of carbonation bubbles visible.

The first aroma of the beer is wheat and pumpkin. Baking spices do push through cinnamon and nutmeg. Other aromas in the beer are grass, floral, earthy, and some yeasty notes.

The first initial taste is wheat and squash notes with grass and floral. Some baking spices do push their way on the pallet. Other flavors I am getting are some earthy, an odd muted phenolic taste, yeast, caramel, and grainy.

The mouthfeel of the beer is medium- body, the carbonation is medium, a touch of astringency, and a medium finish.

Is this a pumpkin beer worthy of craft brewing? That is the thought that is circling my head, I say yes and no. The company has the potential to push this beer to the next level and really make this beer worthy. The flavors in the beer just ebb and flow, the other thing is this odd muted phenolic taste.

Not overly spiced. Pours golden , little lace , mouth feel thinnish and taste cinnamon slight , pumpkin slight ,wheat finish. Mild pumpkin brew , super drinkable. Surprised at the mild , non cloying character of this. A good one despite Blue Moon having a reputation of being too sweet.
