Harvest Pumpkin Ale

Harvest Pumpkin Ale is crafted with pumpkin and spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice for a taste that starts out with assertive malyt notes and is quickly balanced with the right amount of harvest spices. There's a small amount of bitterness to keep the malt sweetness from building up.

Characteristics: 
Pumpkin Ale was Blue Moon's first seasonal craft and was released in 1995. At the time, Oktoberfest beers were in high demand, but for their version, they wanted to create a beer that was a little different than what was already out there and complemented the season by highlighting the flavors everyone loves during the fall season.
