Poured from 12 oz bottle into a frosted mug.

A: A nice amber, orangish color with clumpy, scattered lacing sticking around the top of the mug.

S: Pumpkin takes a back seat to the spices. Immediately pick up nutmeg, followed by cloves.

T: Follows the scent. The spices hit the palate first followed by pumpkin with no real alcohol kick.

M: Under carbonated, with a bready feel that lingers on the tongue after the swallow.

O: A decent fall seasonal beer. Kind of reminds me of Leinie's Oktoberfest. Enjoy by the campfire.

Poured into a pint glass. Pours copper with a thick off-white head that dissipates at a moderate pace. There are some visible tiny bubbles in the beer. I detect faint aromas of those pumpkin pie spices (cloves, allspice, and nutmeg). I get some of the malt in the smell as well. There is some mild pumpkin flavor in the beer and I get the malt with just some of those pumpkin pie spices. Everything about the flavor is mild, but this is certainly more of a malty pumpkin ale. The body is light with moderate carbonation. The finish is crisp and clean. This is an average beer and not a good representation of the style.

Pours a hazy burnt orange, moderate cap of off-white foam, gone quickly. Pale notes of grain blend with mild pumpkin and firm seasonal cinnamon, clove and ginger. Taste very light, mild notes of pumpkin and spice on a weakly malted base beer. Fizzy, light. Not one of the best representations of a pumpkin ale... simply a weak, fizzy beer with a splash of the season.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: bronze in color; thin head that barely covers the surface; mild activity visible

S: typical aroma of spice, cloves, and nutmeg that becomes more pleasant as the beer warms

T: mildly follows the nose with not much change as the beer warms

M: mild-medium carbonation; thin texture; easy drink-ability

O: the aroma and drink-ability give this beer a slightly above average rating, otherwise it's a standard pumpkin ale

Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale has a very thick, fluffy, off-white or cream-colored head, a clear, copper appearance, lots of tiny streaming bubbles, and a good amount of thick lacing left on the glass. The aroma is essentially of pumpkin pie- spices, pumpkin, dough, sweetness, etc. Just terrific! The flavor is likewise pumpkin pie in a glass, with an added, underlying beer flavor, bitterness, and even some sourness. Mouthfeel is medium and a bit soft, and Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale finishes mostly dry, refreshing, pleasant, and delicious. I was shocked, to say the least. I highly recommend giving this a try!

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: 1 inch head, orange-brown in color, clear, high carbonation

Smell: pumpkin spice, cinnamon, clove, toasted malt

Taste: nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, doughy wheat, and pumpkin spice

Mouthfeel: sweet that looses its sweetness at the end, high carbonation, medium bodied

Overall: An average to slightly above average pumpkin ale. The doughiness adds a different dimension to this one, yet it is nothing to go out of my way for. I would get this again or just as well pass.
