12oz bottle. Pours clear orange amber with a one finger white head. Aroma is gingerbread, molasses, nutmeg, cinnamon. Flavor isnt bad, winter spices, maybe just a touch overdone, slight caramel/bready malt. Medium-light body, maybe a tad watery. Actually less disgusting than I expected. Average or maybe even better.

Its not really fair of me to rate this as I dont care for gingerbread at all. And spiced beers dont appeal to me either. But someone gave me a bottle of this so I might as well try it, right? Pours a nice copper amber with an off white head. Aromas is of stale Christmas cookies. The aftertaste is a heckuva lot more bitter than I expected. Otherwise this tastes like liquid potpourri. Not good but could be worse. Some of you may like it better than I so Id advise you at least try it. Bottle.

This beer pours a slightly hazy copper color with a small creamy off white head. The aroma is spices and ginger bread. The taste is ginger bread and spices. There is some funky vegetable flavor as well. The beer was old so that could be while the quality was low.

Pours a clear orangish amber with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice gingerbread note to it with a decent amount of molasses and bread underlying. Flavor is a bit more subdued with a nice gingerbread note backed by molasses and some sweet grains.

12oz bottle 4/13/16 (Jewel Clearance Rack)-46 in shaker-Pours light brown with a small off white head. Aroma of ginger, sweetness, and spices. Taste of the same with the spices being a bit overbearing. This light bodied brew is not bad but tone done the spices.

kramer (5952) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body with a small fizzy off-white head. The nose is quite spicy and gingerbread like, underlying sweet caramel malt. The flavor is a little overly spicy for my tastes, and overly sweet as well. A little wheat and caramel malt after the spice fades. Medium bodied and a bit clingy with fizzy carbonation. Not a favorite, even among the Blue Moon lineup.

Gift from a friend - bottle pour - clear brown body with a tall head that recedes quickly into a film. Aroma is spicy - gingerbread is indeed notable (molasses and other sugary sweetness)...malts, slight bready note - not overpowering - actually kind of pleasant. Flavor is generally sweet - nice dose of spice plays throughout the drink, and has longevity...the molasses is still at the forefront, but generally in a good way. Palate is somewhat thin...just enough to detract a bit. However, given the circumstances, dare I say I was impressed by this beer. Given that Im not a huge fan of gingerbread, I doubt Ill have it again, but nothing was offensive at all about this beer, and thats a win in and of itself.
