The other day, I was sitting around wondering what I would do if I ever got really bored. And do you know what I came up with? I would chew on cinnamon sticks. Who doesn’t love doing that? But then I thought to myself, why not combine to the two things I love most? Cinnamon and beer? I guess Blue Moon Brewing Co beat me to it first. Damn it, Blue Moon... Why can’t I be the genius for once? I’m bored. Where are my cinnamon sticks?

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Clear amber pour with minimal head. Cinnamon and apples all over the nose and taste. Pretty solid!

Before I read the label I thought there might be some peppermint in here, turns out it’s cinnamon and caramel. A little too much winter cheer for me.

Looks like your average amber, but tastes rather odd with the spices. Not totally undrinkable, but I wouldn’t recommend it.

Bottle from Kroger, though one from drowland has shown up at my house tonight as I drink it. I could thank Danny, but I won’t. Brown pour with a small off-white head. Aroma is gingerbread men dipped in sweet pancake syrup. Taste is bitter, still sweet, sugary, caramel, and still more sweet.

This is the best showing from Blue Moon yet. The spiced notes blend into the pallet, leaving a satisfied finished.

12 oz bottle left on my balcony for almost a month from a mix pack a friend brought over. Pours a nice decent hazed copper brown hue, a bit darker with reddish glow in the body and edges. A small frothy offwhite head dies to a ring, laces small overall. Aromas are cinnamon and bread, wheat and gentle sweet caramel, biscuits. Almost a cinnamon bread feel, minus any raisin (maybe a faint waft in). The spice isn’t strong, mellow overall. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, offering a medium strength cinnamon spice, sticks on and covers the palate, with some mellow bread, toast, and biscuits. A gentle sweeter kick of caramel, some mellow orange peel, more spice, cinnamon, and light yeastiness. Flaked wheat, probably a touch of fruity ester, but the cinnamon stays the driving force. Picks up just a touch more body as it warms, mellow dryness and lingering spice into the finish with some sticky sweetness. Ok. A one trick pony. It’s certainly drinkable, and has a bit more character than the other beers I’ve had from here. Not bad.

Nice amber body with a thin off-white head. Very warming and inviting aroma of cinnamon and caramel. The palate is relatively light and quite smooth. The flavor devlivers. Smooth and sweet. Cinnamon, caramel, and I swear a bit of apple. Very impressive offering by Blue Moon.

Beer pours a very nice amber color with a medium sized head that goes away rather quickly. Beer smells of cinnamon and sweet grain. Tastes of cinnamon and sugar, with a nice caramel flavor. Good beer, very pleasant flavor
