Bottle at Headliners. Pours a clear copper with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is caramel, spice, corn. Thin mouth, bread, grain, metallic finish.

Brandon1989 (496) - Euless, Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2016
This beer pours a slightly hazy copper color with a small creamy off white head. The aroma is spices and ginger bread. The taste is ginger bread and spices. There is some funky vegetable flavor as well. The beer was old so that could be while the quality was low.

unclemike (2870) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - APR 17, 2016
Pours a clear orangish amber with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice gingerbread note to it with a decent amount of molasses and bread underlying. Flavor is a bit more subdued with a nice gingerbread note backed by molasses and some sweet grains.

Headbanger (3780) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2016
12oz bottle 4/13/16 (Jewel Clearance Rack)-46° in shaker-Pours light brown with a small off white head. Aroma of ginger, sweetness, and spices. Taste of the same with the spices being a bit overbearing. This light bodied brew is not bad but tone done the spices.

kramer (5770) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body with a small fizzy off-white head. The nose is quite spicy and gingerbread like, underlying sweet caramel malt. The flavor is a little overly spicy for my tastes, and overly sweet as well. A little wheat and caramel malt after the spice fades. Medium bodied and a bit clingy with fizzy carbonation. Not a favorite, even among the Blue Moon lineup.

Gift from a friend - bottle pour - clear brown body with a tall head that recedes quickly into a film. Aroma is spicy - gingerbread is indeed notable (molasses and other sugary sweetness)...malts, slight bready note - not overpowering - actually kind of pleasant. Flavor is generally sweet - nice dose of spice plays throughout the drink, and has longevity...the molasses is still at the forefront, but generally in a good way. Palate is somewhat thin...just enough to detract a bit. However, given the circumstances, dare I say I was ’impressed’ by this beer. Given that I’m not a huge fan of gingerbread, I doubt I’ll have it again, but nothing was offensive at all about this beer, and that’s a win in and of itself.

rollinsr (553) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - MAR 3, 2016
Pours light ruby with off-white head. Aroma is heavily gingerbread spiced. Flavor is also heavily spiced with notes of molasses. There are also some mild year esters that come through. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I can cope with this. A little artificial in the nose and sweet out front but the spice is nicely seasonal even of I drank it in late February. Bottle.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a light brown color and it has a small off white head. The aroma is full of sweet spices. The flavor is sweet with some gingerbread taste. Not a horrible winter offering.
