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.

I wasn't expecting much , but this beer turned out to be a nice surprise.
Pours a gorgeous copper color.
Nice pumpkin pie aroma.
Tastes really good too. Good flavor without the pumpkin spices being over done.
Easy to drink and most enjoyable.

Pours a pretty clear copper/amber, with a half finger of quickly receding, white foam. Spotty lacing down the glass. The aroma, is, lots of spices. Nutmeg, all spice, cinnamon, etc... it's so strong that I don't pick up anything else. Flavor, lots of cinnamon from the middle to the very end. Everything else is an afterthought. It does have an overall, bit of a bready quality, though. Where is the actual pumpkin flavor, though? The feel, is, average carbonation, fairly dry, and medium thin body. Enough of this for one lifetime.
