COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This copper-colored ale is crafted with roasted malts, Belgian sugar, and a touch of wheat for a rich caramel flavor and a smooth toffee finish.

Dark Brown, Big Head Dissipated Rather Quickly Leaving Decent Lacing. Roasted Malt, caramel, sweet. I did not get any hops, nor wheat. A little too thin and too light ABV to be a real winter warmer. A little bland, toned down, while it should be sharper and bolder. Knowing that this is Coors Product, it is rather decent. OK.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a thin beige head, weak malty aroma with some caramel, the taste is slighty bitter with malt, with a dry finish.

As far as sticking with the style, they made an attempt considering this is a Coors product. The aroma was faintly of bread. The color a dark brown with a small head. The palate was light with average carbonation. The flavors were like a light Dubbel. I swear I could taste a Coors influence. Some bready sweetness. Everything seemed toned down.

Nothing very remarkable in this Abby. Hints of the spices I expected but not bold. Slightly alcoholic hints.

I got this in a trade with a neighbor. Thankfully I didn’t give up too much in exchange. This "abbey" ale has very sour and overly spiced flavors. The ginger and cinnamon are way overdone. The beer has no head and a very uninteresting copper color. The only decent quality of this beer is a slightly spicy hop flavor toward the finish. Other than that, I’d just about pour this one down the toilet.

Just getting around to rating this one. This beer was one of my least favorite winter Blue Moon beers. The beer had a very off-putting bitter flavor.

Darker than expected... Overall average ... C+ to a B- at best... Its a dark amber, with heavy caramel flavor, but is missing a standout spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Utobeer, Borough Market, London (355ml, £2.50):
Light caramel malts and a very sweet aroma with a few toffee notes and some sugar. There is a lot of spice coming through and a nutty aroma near the end.
Dark brown colour with a thin, half centimetre tall and bubbly head that settles to a thin, patchy lacing on top of the beer after about a minute.
Spicy and a stronger caramel taste to begin with, there is some sweetness shinning through and a nutty base with some darker fruits in there to. I could detect a small amount of wheat and a light bitter finish.
Light bodied and a little thin but nothing major, the carbonation was medium and the beer was very sweet with a bit of spice thrown in too.

Fairly ordinary although not bad, however it was a little too sweet and started to become slightly sickening nearer the end. I’d stick to the original if I was you but it wasn’t enough to put me off seeking out other Blue Moon varieties in future.

Great Beer. Sight: dark in color, kinda hazy. with an off white head. Smell: caramel, fruity yeast, nutty. Taste: fruity notes, caramel, nutty, full bodied, heavy. Aftertaste: Short, still nutty with some bitter notes. I really like this beer. Full of Flavor.
