Drank from bottle. Slightly off color than what I expected. It smelled like gingerbread with hints of cinnamon. It smells like what the label is promising. Although it smelled good, it was overly sweet and unbalanced. Sweet upfront and a little metallic on the back end. A little lighter than what I expected from an amber. I normally like spiced beers, but this didn't do it for me. Just average. (403 characters)

Blue Moon Gingerbread Spiced Ale brewed by Coors Brewing Company, with an ABV of 5.90% This brew pours out a nice light brown color , with an off white head. The smell is rich with sweetness and spices. Gingerbread Spiced Ale puts you in the mind of Christmas cookies, not saying that is a bad thing. You also pick up on some gains in the taste of this brew. The mouthfeel is nice and clean. At the end of the is brew there is a nice smoothness. There is nothing overpowering in this brew, it has a nice balance to it. Coors Brewing Company did a nice job with this brew. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4 out 5. I would get this brew again. (640 characters)

Had a few of these in one session. It's amber in color and clear and has a 2 finger head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of nutmeg, ginger & cinnamon? Tastes like it was intended, like a gingerbread inside a German wheat, not bitter at all. Carbonation was minimal and the beer was smooth & surprisingly easy to drink. I thought it would be too sweet but it wasn't (363 characters)

Enjoyed form the bottle in a pint glass. This spiced brew pours an attractive rusty red with a light off white head of dissipating foam that dies down to a thin layer and solid lacing. Nose of ginger, caramel malts, brown sugars, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Flavors are up front spiced with ginger and brown sugars to the front, some cinnamon and nutmeg to the sides and rear with a light fresh bread flavor rounding it all out. Smooth yet bracing spice brew that finishes sweet. Surprisingly decent for what it is, although will admit it is a pumpkin brew minus the pumpkin. Not too shabby for a macro micro. (608 characters)
