2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz Bottle & Tumbler. Aroma is light with very faint fruit & spice undertones. Pours a medium amber color with a beige head which quickly dissipates into minimal lacing. Taste is vaguely suggestive of (slightly) sweet toffee with some roasted bitterness. Watery finish with no aftertaste. This is an inoffensive, but unimpressive brew.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Crisp amber coloured body with a ruby glow and a very very thick tan head that tops the beer nicely. Aroma of malt, toffee, sugars and a touch of yeast - nice. Medium-bodied; Assertive toffee and earthy nuttiness with a good dose of malt, some light yeast flavours and very little else. Aftertaste shows a pale malt characteristic with a little toffee and earth and perhaps some bitter tea and yeast flavours. Overall, not so great, and not even close to any abbey or belgie beer i’ve had - this does not belong in that category, regardless of what they were intending or what the label says. This quite simply is awful and passable only by a mass produced brewery - not good. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 09-November-2011 for US$1.99 sampled at home on the Eastern Shore on 12-November-2011.

Decent caramel type aroma. Little head retention. Clear, dark brown/amber look. Small Belgian style taste. Would be good as a session beer.

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.

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.

Appearance is beautiful for the most part. Clear amber-ish ruby, yet with a rocky and not persistent head. Flat-ish carbonation, surprising from a macrobrew. Aroma was upsetting, mostly funky malt with some bread dough. Taste was just as upsetting. Light caramel, grains, and some nutmeg appear on the palate, with little to no hop profile to speak of. Very light bodied, which is a downer but not unexpected. Just another lazily crafted beer from the MillerCoors folk.

Pours a clear, dark old copper with a tall, fluffy, beige head. Aroma is cereal, stale grain, sweet malt, a touch of roast and dark caramel. Flavor is toasted cereal, sweet malt, caramel, roasted nuts and an odd, slightly sour grainy dishwater finish. Light to medium bodied, somewhat creamy on entry and off dry and really chalky to the finish. This was not a very enjoyable beer, the odd grainy dishwater taste seemed to persist on my palate the more I drank. Before that flavor became constant it was a fairly inoffensive brew.

Bottle. Dear me oh dear me. Pours rich red brown with lasting foamy head. Faint sweet malty aroma. A sugary sweetness is the only flavour, light bodied and only a little fizz for a finish. But then it’s made by Coors.
