2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Pint glass
From: Walmart in Fayetteville, N.C.
Consumed: Oct. 13, 2013
Misc.: My younger brother bought a 12-pack
Poured a dark caramel color with one finger of gray head. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass and minimal retention on the way down.
Smelled pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, wintry spices, cloves and gingerbread.
Tasted similar to the smell with those winter spices leading the way. Also pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon. A little lacking in flavor overall though.
Light-to-medium body. Oily texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Longer finish.
Not bad for Blue Moonís version of a pumpkin beer. Iíve certainly had better, but this wasnít the worst.

Nice combination of spices, with the nutmeg standing out most. A tasty pumpkin ale that I think is underrated here.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Clear, light orange pour with a small, short lived, head. Heavy aroma of nutmeg and pumpkin. Vegetable flavor with a mess of spices that leaves a bitter aftertaste. Lively carbonated with a thin texture. Some sweet malts or spices would have helped balance this one out.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - good size foamy head, nice dark copper color, pumpkin spice aroma and flavor - a little too much for me, not much balance

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Harvest Moon Pumpkin Ale is amber colored pumpkin ale. The taste of pumpkin pie spice is up front with a smooth slightly dry finish. The lack of a nice creamy head detracts from the overall appearance.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Appearance: Orange with some visible carbonation and a tiny off white head. Aroma: synthetic pumpkin spice, like what youíd get in pumpkin scented candle. Flavour: again synthetic flavour, something harsh and plastic in the background, quite a bitter and distasteful finish.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The spice is quite strong, and it doesnít really work that well. I also didnít get much of a pumpkin flavour, but perhaps thatís just my simple taste buds.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a sampler on a Biz Trip to Auburn Hills, 355ml bottle, 5.7% a/v
Pours a light copper color with a thin off white head. Aroma is predominately pumpkin spice, with a bit of caramel as well. Taste is smooth, and slightly spicy with some roasted pumpkin sweetness. Hoppy on the palate a bit, just enough to balance it. A smooth aftertaste iwth a lingering spiciness. A good blend, could use a bit more spice but a nice offering.
