Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale – A Thanksgiving Pumpkin Special Series Cont.

blue_moon_pumpkin_ale

Ok, so Blue Moon is brewed by MillerCoors, which means it’s not a craft beer.  But it is a pumpkin ale, which is more important for this series.   And it’s better than Jack’s Spice Pumpkin Ale, so it’s not the worst non-craft pumpkin ale I could find.  But I digress.  Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale is a pumpkin-wheat ale, so I expected it to be a bit milder than average, which it is.   The bottle claims there are spices in there (cloves, allspice, and nutmeg) but I can’t taste them, so I’m guessing it’s only a tiny hint.  There’s a bit of pumpkin in the nose and the middle, though not a whole lot, and a slightly bitter finish.   It’s an ok beer, but not a good one.

I give it a 2.9 out of 5.    

This is part 4 of a 8 part Thanksgiving weekend series.
