Harvestmoon
« on: September 02, 2010, 09:29:40 AM »
I tried Bluemoon's pumpkin ale called Harvestmoon and was very disappointed.  Both my wife and I had a very hard time tasting any spice or pumpkin, very bland.

Think I'll give it a miss!
Beer...Now there's a temporary solution!

I have not been interested in trying it, though my beer of the day calendar recommended it a few days ago.  I have not really liked the blue moon either but am not a big wheat fan.

I bought a six pack last year and was not impressed.  When I saw it on the store shelf I thought "hmm, should I get some?"  "Nope" was the reply.  There are definitely better and more interesting beers to buy.  If you like Dogfish Head beers give the Punkin Ale a try if you can find it.  It think it is quite good!

Ya, it was the first pumpkin beer my store has in this year, so limited choices right now.

Used to actually kinda like it - before I started homebrewing. Haven't had it in years, so it may have changed from the original. And I'm sure my tastes have changed.
The moral majority, is neither.
