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.

Like most Blue Moon beers this comes in overly sweet and underwhelming on flavor.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a deep copper color with a white head and uniform lacing. Aroma is subtle spices and nutmeg. Taste is disappointing as it was advertised as a caramel apple spice but the only flavor your really get is the all spice. And even that is subtle. Too bad, I had high hopes but it is just average.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma is of cinnamon and apple as advertised, unfortunately that is where the enjoyment ends for me. This brew is very mild and barely hints at the flavors that are advertised. Typical Beer for the palate challenged beer drinker.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass.
Clear light copper color with a small head.
Spicy nose, with nutmeg, caramel, and some cookies.
Sweet malt flavor, with slight tartness, fruity (caramelized apple) and spices. Low bitterness.
Med body, feels like a winter bock beer. OK but not great.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. Bottle from a sample case. Pours a nice dark amber with a thick ivory head. Nice looking beer. Aromas of nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, hint of caramel. Medium carbonation on the tongue, light-medium body with flavors of malty caramel, allspice, hint of apple. Not as sweet as I thought it would be. Quite smooth and drinkable. Not bad!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma is a little sweeter. Taste was a little disappointing - the caramel and spices aren’t nearly as strong as I would like. Overall just too weak.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear red-amber color with a large foamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of mild spice, burnt caramel and a strong meaty/salty note. Weird. The taste is heavy spice, apple, caramel. Thin-watery, high carbonation. This is a train wreck.
