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 donít mind many Blue Moon beers but this one seems a bit odd and hard to like.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark amber with white head. Aroma of cinnamon and all-spice. Smells a bit like sweet potato souffle. Taste is of nutmeg and cinnamon. Nice caramel malts and hints of vanilla. A bit watery but the lively carbonation makes it easy to drink. Very refreshing. Bit of spice in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle, best before date of June 18, 2012. This was a gift from a friend and I didnít get it until recently, but Iíll drink it anyway. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a reddish/brown color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention is decent, but there isnít much lacing at all. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like cinnamon, nutmeg and caramel malt. The beer tastes like it smells, but thereís also the addition of some apples and gingerbread. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick and has moderate carbonation. This beer is a lot better than I thought it would be, Iíd try this again. I know itís Blue Moon, but itís definitely worth trying. I just wish I would have tried it fresher when it originally came out. I liked it.

12 oz. bottle- Pours hazy dark amber with a tan two finger head that reduces to a collar . The aroma is strong, it smells like a candy apple with cinnamon, lots of cinnamon. The taste is similar, confectioners sugar, caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg. Body is medium, carbonation is fairly high. Overall I really liked this beer, this should be their winter holiday seasonal, it screams Christmas, very tasty.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Aroma is cinnamon, grain, caramel. Pours reddish brown with a medium beige head that collapses into a blanket of foam after a couple minutes. Taste is sweet and sour with a pronounced cinnamon flavor. Carbonation is average and the mouthfeel is creamy. As far as spiced beers go, itís not as good as the Widmer Spiced IPA I rated last night, but this isnít bad. A nice beer to say goodbye to winter.
