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.

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 didnt 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, Id 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. Id stick to the original if I was you but it wasnt enough to put me off seeking out other Blue Moon varieties in future.

April 12, 2013 - bottle from Uncle Nick. Clear brown pour with lots of head that lasted. Aroma of malt, caramel and spice. Taste was consistent, but lightly roasted malt. Thin to medium bodied and some carbonation.

This ale poured with a burnt yellowish to brown pour. Its taste has hints of hops and sweet caramel with hints of coffee in the finish. Pretty good offering from Millercoors

A beer I struggled to rate. It ticks all the boxes but somehow fails to deliver. t is full bodied and flavoursome but lacks a subtleness. I

Pours dark amber with a fizzy head the mostly disappears. Malt aroma is hardly detectable. Nice malty taste with the initial sip. Slightly sweet finish. Not bad for a mega brewery.
