12 oz bottle- Pours hazy dark orange with a crackly off white head that reduces quickly. Aroma is gingerbread spices, Belgian yeast, some caramel. The taste is similar, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, gingerbread is somewhat noticeable as a flavor here, but a bit watery, thin. Not horrible.

I appreciate the fact that Coors is trying to make drinkable beers but we are still far from decency. This is bright amber, with nearly no head. Bubblegum aroma, taste is sweetish, candy sugar, some gingerbread, molasses. Very watery. A beer you will forget after the last sip. Meh...

This was a good beer it had a nice winter spice that really rang true all the way through the beer. I really appreciated the spices added to this one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Poured clear dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid spicy ginger and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet spice malt flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft drinkable beer.

12oz bottle, from my local Kroger. Shared. Dated Apr 18 16. Clear red orange color. Thin ring of off-white head. Some loose bits of lace. Really spicy aroma, seems like more winter than just ginger. Weird, musty malty flavor up front, some veg. Really unpleasant flavor. Weird fruitiness. Caramel, must, funk, veg. Moderate bitter taste, kind of astringent, mild bite, kind of dry finish. Light to moderate sweet. Medium body. Light carbonation. Mild slick. Not a fan. Drinks way weird and off. 5oz was plenty, I would have struggled with more.

shrubber85 (9646) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle. Ginger, cinnamon, bready malt aroma. Amber with large off white head. Sweet spicy ginger, caramel malt, and mildly bitter hay flavor. Body a bit light. Decent.

nuplastikk (5374) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 9, 2016
12oz bottle. Yep, another unenticing Blue Moon tick. Filtered copper body. Thin, steady, off-white head. Not so bad, but not so good either. Not far at all removed from a pumpkin spiced beer. Kind of a beer aimed at a non-beer drinker. Sweet, not much depth besides the spices. Pretty weak offering...surprise, surprise.

Bottle. Pours a light amber color with medium-sized tan colored head. Aroma of molasses and spices. Pretty sweet flavor with heavy gingerbread presence. Medium bodied. Average but interesting.
