Pours a nice copper, almost no aroma present. Smells like almost nothing, more like fizzy lager than an actual pumpkin ale. Taste is blocked out by a forced amount of fizzy carbonation, as seems to be the norm with the Blue Moon brews. What taste is there is incredibly bland. When it warms up a bit the pumpkin and spice notes are more apparent, but the true watery nature of the beer comes through. A bit below average, not very enjoyable considering there are far better marzens out there for this time of year. Won't be drinking this again.

this beer sucks..i like blue moon ..but this is total swill . Would make a good beer for maybe sticking in a turkeys ass while cooking but besides that it really blows- . How is it possible that they can be so over the board...I mean all over on these pumpkins . Not just this company but all of them . Couple of years ago Sam had total crap pumpkin ...now this year it is apparently good . WTF....remember its spices..make that the flavor you taste and you will get it right . My god..what was this brewer doing before working at Walmart !???

Harvest Moon reminds me of some of Silver Moon’s earlier, Division Street ales in that it tastes raw and unfinished. This pale ale produces a yeasted aroma and a flourish of sweetness, but otherwise has a tannic consistency with a taste of iced tea and lemon. It is translucent topaz with sheet lacing.

Shows a lacks refinement. The one ingredient I would add more of is time.

Meh. No smell, taste, or aftertaste of any cloves, nutmeg, or whatever else it had in it. Color and appearance matched well I thought. It wasn't bad, just....bland. I was hoping for a kick of something like cinnamon, cloves, or any other fall spice but nothing.
