COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We crafted our single-style abbey ale with select roasted malts, a hint of Belgian sugar, and a touch of wheat for a rich, caramel flavor and a wonderfully smooth toffee finish. Itís perfect for those chilly winter days.

I donít know why I get my hopes up with these beers. Maybe, itís because I want one of these macro-brewers to grow a pair and brew something great and exciting. This was like Coors with a Belgian twist. It wasnít offensive mind you, just bland. The aroma was faint and grainy and had a hint of adjuncts. Caramel brown color with a small fizzy head. Watery palate with high carbonation. Not much weight. It had this underlying Coors malt flavor with some caramel sweetness at the finish. Tolerable.

Aroma is very light yeast, mild bananas and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is malts, cinnamon, light bubblegum and a mix of mild heat and tangy in the finish.

Tulip glass. Nose of malts, spices, maybe even some gingerbread. Dark amber, bit of head and lacing. Taste of malts with a slightly foul aftertaste. Carbonated mouth feel.

draft, I drank this beer before I saw that it is considered an Abbey Ale. Better than most Blue Moon brews out there, but on the thin, watery, sweet side. Not a complex or balanced brew. But, it does have some potential.

On tap. Has a very weak aroma but, fortunately a less weak flavor. Still, the flavor is meek, even for Blue Moon, with a slightly sweet balance. Feel: Near medium body and medium+ carbonation. O: decent but too mild. Very light flavored compared to the Abita Amber sampled after it.

Had this on a chilly, snowy day so it was the perfect conditions according to the bottle. Too bad it just tastes like hops. I wanted more caramel and toffee (like it smelled) but it wasnít much more than hoppy water.

I put this in a make-your-own six-pack just to see. Iíve had other BM beers that werenít bad, but ugh. Iíve had medicines that tasted better. The yeast doesnít seem to bring anything to the table. No hop presence. I donít get any rich caramel or toffee. Just nothing redeeming about it.

Dark caramel color. Sweet at first taste. Taste of caramel with a bitter finish. average carbonation. Thin texture

mildly sweet perfumey arom, makes you take notice. a darker iced tea colored beer with no haze. yes, some sweetness on the first taste too. not too many ill effects in this beer except that it may be a little too sweet, almost cloying but not quite. seems to want to let you know that it is more than 5% in alky content. i guess iím surprized that i havenít tasted this yet but i think i got it mixed up w/another one of a hundred blue moon spinoffs. decent co2, makes this a little more acceptable on the finish.

Pours a copper with one finger of quickly disappearing head. Aroma is malty with hints of caramel and a bit of toffee and spice. Taste is quite weak a bit sweet with a lackluster finish. Overall for an Abbey a poor showing but still enjoyable to drink
