Since Summer is just about over, I have started getting into the fall beers a little bit early. There are many out there but I have tried the ones that just about everyone can find in a store near them. The first one that I have tried is the “harvest Pumpkin Ale” by Blue Moon. As with all of the beers brewed by Blue Moon, Im sure you will all enjoy this one.

To start off with this beer is brewed with a variety of malts, hops, and spices.  The malts that are is this beer are the Munich and Caramel malts while the Hallertau hops are added in the brewing process. To add a unique flavor to this beer, pumpkin, allspice, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg are added as well.

All of these ingrediants combine to give this beer a very pleasent taste. This beer pours to a dark amber color and has a slight head but nothing to spectacular. With a lot of fall beers you tend to get pumpkin flavor in the beer. The same goes for this one as the name would suggest however its just the right amount. The pumpkin taste is not to powerful at all and combines nicely with all of the other ingredients.

If you are looking to pair this with a meal you are in luck. This beer will pair very well with many things. You can pair this with alot of dishes that have beef as the main ingredient.  This will also pair well with many of your favorite seasonal soups. If you would like you can also use this beer as a cooking to or in a marinade to give your dishes a nice added touch of seasonal flavor. As with all of the beers on here Im sure the majority of you will enjoy it.  Cheers.
