3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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 doesnít 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 canít I be the genius for once? Iím 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 itís 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 wouldnít 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 wonít. 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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 isnít 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. Itís certainly drinkable, and has a bit more character than the other beers Iíve 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.
