SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Pumpkin-flavored drinks and pastries are ubiquitous this time of year, but it’s not every day you come across a pumpkin-based beer. If you’re looking to add a little spice to your beer selection this fall, Blue Moon’s Harvest Pumpkin Ale might have the ticket. 

Taste: Unlike special edition candies or coffee flavorings, the pumpkin taste in this Blue Moon ale is not sugary or artificial. The flavor is subtle, balanced by cinnamon and nutmeg. Under these calming autumnal tones is a distinct spice and an almost earthy undertone. It may not be as delicious as a slice of pumpkin pie, but Harvest Pumpkin Ale — which has been Blue Moon’s seasonal favorite since 1995 — is satisfying enough.

Advice: Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale is certainly not a beer to guzzle in a game of beer pong; instead, enjoy this beverage in a casual setting with a good warm meal. Put aside a six-pack to celebrate your own personal Oktoberfest in the coming weeks.
