2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle:   Amber with a bright copper hue, thin frothy white head, little lacing.   Has a soft cinnamon apple spice to the nose, but very soft... too soft.   Soft malty start, touch of cinnamon, apple spice (like a candle), and very pale breadiness.   This one is the softest out of all the winter Blue Moons.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Perhaps a touch of apple cider on the finish, with a touch of nutmeg or cinnamon in it.   Very soft example.   Wished it had more caramel sweetness and body to it.   Uneventful.

as far as the herb spice beer catagory goes this is christmas in a bottle. a lot of spice aroma and multiple spices on the palate. i get a hint of the caramel and apple. but take this for what it is a seasonal spice beer and personal preference is key to enjoyment. i like it but no wonder i love pumpkin spice lattes too.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Browned orange in color with a medium sized dark tan head that is mostly diminishing. Stale bread, caramels and slightly sour apples in the aroma - none of which is particularly strong - with a decent amount of cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavor is of light rye bread, dried straw, light baking spices, toffee. There certainly isn’t much in the way of apple flavors. Not a bad beer, the spices are subtle yet balanced, yet it suffers from the grainy, adjuncty twang found in so many of the Blue Moon specialty beers.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Maierovicz’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Clear orange-amber. Aroma of caramel, cinnamon and some furitiness. Sweet flavor with caramel, cinnamon and a slightly drier and spicier finish. Medium-bodied.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Blue Moon Caramel Apple Spiced Ale has a very thick, creamy, cream-colored head, a clear, bubbly, copper appearance, and a fairly good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is of spices, breads, and some juice. Taste is very spiced, juicy, bready, and sweet- certainly flavorful. Also, there is a nice grain aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium and a bit slick, and Blue Moon Caramel Apple Spiced Ale finishes mostly dry, sweet, somewhat cloying, and easily drinkable. Overall, this is good, and it is outstanding for a flavored beer.

Again, virtually the same as the pumpkin and other spiced beers by Coors, only this one claims to have apple and caramel and there’s none of that going on here so I lowered the score even though it tastes more or less the same as the others.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep amber coloured body with a nice thinnish just off-white head. Aroma of oddly enough - light spices, apples, caramel, toffee and quite a bit of brown sugar. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong sweet flavours at first with a big cardboardie malt note then showing quite a bit of caramel sweetness and an odd medicinal flavour. Aftertaste shows the funky cardboardie, stale malt then a lot of brown sugar and deep sweetness and some light spices tucked in at the very end. Overall, an interesting and rather strong caramel and sweetly spiced beer - not very good, but interesting and perhaps worth a try if you like these types of beers, especially seasonally. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased and pulled from a Blue Moon Twelve Pack, purchased from Giant in Arlington, Virginia after a hockey game on 09-October-2013 - Thanks Kevin!

While the beer tastes good it oddly smelled like soap to me. I am not sure why. It definitely does not taste like it, it is a good beer. I wouldn't order it intentionally but if given it I would drink it and enjoy it.
