I love this dark beer. No bitter taste just subtle Carmel and a wonderful ale and amazingly smooth!

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 Mostly soap on the nose, faint spices. Burnt amber color is promising, but like a lot of mass produced beers, the taste aims for inoffensiveness rather than complexity. Vaguely spicy finish. Why make it so smooth and watery? The Coors crowd isn’t going to be buying this, so who do you think is picking a beer called "Winter Abbey Ale" off the shelves? Craft beer fans. Needs to be much bolder.

Bottle on the beach. Malty smell. Nice body. Smooth taste. Winter spices. Low carbonation.

Pours copper with a fizzy head that disappears quickly. Not much aroma, just some malts. Flavor is OK, maltiness with a hint of citrus, wheat.

Bottle. Pours a clear darker brown color with a moderate frothy off-white head. Nose is a little sweet with some caramel notes. Taste is a little sweet with more caramel notes. Actually not bad.

Nice color, malty and sweet. Aftertaste lingers unwelcomely. Sort of disappointed that there are two more in the pack. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hollywoodt (239) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle. Poured a medium amber color with no real head to speak of. Aroma was spice and a little malt. The flavor followed along. Nothing to get excited about....I can say I’ve tried it.

Blue Moon kind of reminds me of this horrible Betty White prank show my Dad is watching... The first 3 pranks have been based around farts, porn, and porn. Pretty lowest common denominator and aiming for mass appeal. But unlike the prank show, there is some good here. Nothing jumps out, but it’s tasty. Unlike Coors itself or Bud, Blue Moon is trying. Just like an octogenarian aping Punk’d (which already kind of sucked). And damn it, that earns you some points in my book.
