COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep amber-colored ale is crafted with cinnamon, rich caramel malts, and a touch of wheat for an inviting spiced flavor on a crisp winter day.

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.

Bottle. Poured a mahogany, brown color with a nice white top. Pumpkin, spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel. Medium carbonation. Iíve had better spice brews, but I give coors props for making a solid beer

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.

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.

Clear amber pour and a light head. Good cinnamon and apple nose and taste, light caramel hints. Decent for a large american company brew.

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.

dark amber color, aroma of strong cinnamon, toffee, caramel, flavor of cinnamon, toffee, caramel, roasted malt, taste like cinnamon sugar cookies, light bodied, I would say the best coors/miller has to offer

The beer pours a reddish-amber ale with a white head. The aroma brings me back to Christmas. I smell something that strongly resembles Snickerdoodle cookies, with a ton of cinnamon and sugar notes. I also get a little bit of toffee. The flavor definitely follows suit. I get some cinnamon and sugar, as well as some caramel and ginger. There is also some brown sugar in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice spiced beer.
