Smells like Christmas and the first swig was delicious but the spices got old quick. I more substantial ale would hold up to the spice better.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Dark brown with ruby notes and a medium, beige head. Notes of toffee, butterscotch, cinnamon, and cardamon. The flavor is very sweet, savory, and faintly sour. The body is medium, silky, and very smooth. Overall, this is a good, sweet beer, with a nice, spicy warmth.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very god looking beer, with a dark mahogany body that is clear and covered with a very durable and creamy tan head. The spice mix is quite nice, but nearly overpowers the malt base. A tad too sweet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle. Pours dark clear amber with thin head. Aroma was sweet and spices. Taste followed with lots of sweetness, cinnamon and lots of Allspice. Good fall beer if you just want one. Could use an alcohol kick to add some warmth.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
POured a clear chestnut amber with a 1 inch foamy beige head. The head dropped to heavy film fairly quickly. There were lots of carbonation bubbles rising up in the glass. The lack of the head retention reduced the appearance score, the beer was a very nice color though. The was a nicy spicy aroma of cinnamon graham crackers and nutmeg. The beer had nice carbonation and a slightly thicker body. The aroma was carried into the flavor as well with the taste of cinamon crunch cereal along with just a hint of a hops bite on the slightly sweet finish. Probably the best beer in the variety pack.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked APR1513-B0510OO26. It is not a bad looking beer with its dark amber tone and smallish head. The aroma is fairly weak however with a bit of fruitiness. The body is thin to medium. The taste is difficult to define. It is like a cinnamon spice-Allspice flavor but generally sweet with a low bitterness. The fruitiness is kind of cranberry-like. I don’t mind many Blue Moon beers but this one seems a bit odd and hard to like.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark red with small foamy head. Cinnamon aroma. Sweet and spicy taste. Notes of candied apple, caramel, cinnamon and some dry wheatiness. Moderately sweet, moderately bitter. On the thin side but overall a very good autumn/Christmas ale.
