12oz brown bottle with a freshness date printed on the neck of the bottle.

Pours a stiff head, two finger high. Brilliant copper color. Gourd aroma with some faint spicing and caramel-like malt. Snap in the crispness, pretty smooth with a moderate sized body. Even spicing with some pumpkin going on. Dry maltiness aside from a quick push of caramel. Very little hopping here which is fine. Finishes dry with some spice.

Nothing epic but not to shabby either. A decent pick for a low key holiday party that perhaps has a lot of non-beer drinkers.

Beer review from BA Mag Oct 2007.

Harvest Moon Pumpkin Ale is a spawn of the Blue Moon portfolio, which is part of the Molson Coors Brewing Company. It's been around since September 1996 and is now brewed in Toronto, Canada.

Right away we noticed the exceptional head retention, with tiny bubbles that leave some lacing behind. Bright copper color; clarity is perfect. Spicy sweet aroma, smell of gingersnaps, biscotti and caramel. A bit of smoothness comes out from the crisp moderately sized body. Spicy over the top with a hint of alcohol that warms after each sip; bready malt flavors for the base peak in the middle yet fade quickly. The caramel malt flavor seems to have more of an impact on the palate and does seem to balance the spiciness for the most part. Minimal hopping lets the spices come through fully with more of an allspice flavor than anything else. Finishes just as spicy as it started with a slow drying end.

We'll say it: too clean. Perhaps the lack of hops and bitterness? But this is to be expected coming from a big brewer. With that said, it just does not have the same gritty raw feel to it and it's hard to imagine a brewer chopping pumpkins for the mash when a beer is this clean. A good beer for the faint of palate.
