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.
