look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Pretty much what I expect from the folks who bring us coors light.

A- Looks like a copper beer. Really clear, perhaps too clear. Really thin, which is inapropriate for the style.

S- Almost none what so ever. This style is famous for smelling like pie, lots of sweet and spice and bread. This almost doesn't even smell like beer.

T- Right on par with the smell. The only discernable taste is a coppery metalic taste like oxygenation/stale quallity. Doesn't even taste like beer. At least cheap lite beer taste like beer, this was almost like drinking soapy water.

M- Watery. Again this style is supposed to be rich and full, but this one was probably thinner than water.

D- not drinkable. Very lame even for a blue moon.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

A - A nice brown orange color with a quickly fading white head and some tiny bubbles.

S - Not a lot of smell, but there is a bit of pumpkin spice and malt.

T - Not a lot of flavor, but what is there is bad. There is a light pumpkin and spice taste that just doesn't taste right to me and maybe a bit of malt in the background.

M - Light body, watery, with light to medium carbonation.

O - I like pumpkin beers but this one was just bad, blue moon usually has decent beers, but I would not recommend this one.

[Best served in a Lager glass]

The pour was a hazy dark amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) creamy white head that lasted a little while and produced excellent lacing that stuck to the glass rather nicely.

The aroma was very weak of a mild crystal malt and a moldy yeast with a very light hint of nutmeg and pumpkin.

It tasted bitter and acidic with just an ever so light hint of nutmeg in the beginning and finished about the same with a harsh bite of pumpkin rind at the end. The flavor lasted a long time letting the taste of rind hang around way to long.

Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and dry in texture with a very lively carbonation

Overall this did not really even taste like a Pumpkin Ale which was rather disappointing.

awful! from beginning to end this was not good. the color is very light for my taste (you could see through it!). the head was actually quite nice, very big frothy white, somewhat lacey.

smells very much like any pumpkin flavored beer should smell. spicey with a hint of pumpkin to it.

as soon as i tasted this i was disgusted. the spices were quite weak and you didn't get any hint of pumpkin until the finish. a very terrible aftertaste occured that i couldn't get out of my mouth without the help of water between almost every single sip.

if your idea of a good time is eating pumpking pie and drinking high life maybe you'll enjoy this...but i doubt it.

Harvest moon pumpkin ale

Best by march 07, 2011

Poured into perfect pint glass. Beer given to me from a friend at work.

A - orangish/amber color with a quick 1 finger head that left in about 10 seconds with no lacing.

S - this is a tough one. Not much smell on this guy...that domestic ale alcohol the smallest bit of peppery spice....that's it really. Nothing the bottle says.

T - boy this is a bland pumpkin ale but what did I expect? The smallest bit of pumpkin, no cloves no allspice...little bit of pepper and oranges...My buds are failing me here, I got nothin'.

M - light, at least it has decent carbonation.

D - this was not a good pumpkin ale, not that I was expecting much but it didn't even meet the criteria I had thought it to be. If you want pumpkin ale spend the extra few bucks and get one that's worth it. You'll thank me.

Copper colour with almost non-existent just off white head. Ever so slight haze.

Smell is thick and heady, and reminds me of a store-bought pumpkin pie that's been in the fridge a bit too long.

Flavour is hard to nail down- a bit ashy, with overtones of that pie from the smell comments. Not much flavour on finish.

Just slight bit high on the carbonation, and a body that's just about right.

Not very drinkable at all...but oddly, I've had worse....else it would have gotten a 1.

Be well

In the glass the beer looks fine, amber in color. The smell was nothing great but not offensive or specifically pumpkin.
It was sticky in my mouth, with an odd aftertaste.
I am a big fan of pumpkin spice beer in the fall. I was expecting more pumpkin spice and do not feel it delivered. I just did not really care for it at all.
