By the way : Halloween at the Wildhorse
Back at home we blew through a bag of Halloween candy, watched The Evil Dead and tried a round of some seasonal beer which I'm ashamed to say I was drawn to by it's fancy packaging, I'm a sucker for anything pumpkin spice so when I found Blue Moon Ale's Harvest Moon pumpkin spice beer I had to try it. As you might expect delicious pumpkin spice in booze format with a catchy name was just too good to be true. I have no idea what I was expecting but unless you're one of those boozy super tasters the spices they described it as having were pretty much undetectable. Mostly I found it to have the acidic bite of pale ale with kind of a warm finish which I guess is what they were trying to say was the spiced part. I'm not a huge beer drinker anyway but this wasn't anything special so in the future I think I'd skip it. The Evil Dead however was magnificent. Bruce Campbell and I are getting married. You're all invited.
