look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clear reddish amber with a large tan head, which slowly fades to a thin, unbroken layer of foam on the surface. Thick, fine-beaded lacing coats the glass walls. Clouds of minute bubbles drift lazily to the surface.

Aroma: Very prominent gingerbread, nutmeg, and cinnamon notes, with a backbone of caramel and brown bread. The aroma is reminiscent of Christmas cookies.

Taste: Opens with sweet caramel and dark bread flavors, overlaid with cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. As the taste progresses, the spices intensify. Late in the taste, there is a wave of molasses and brown sugar. Finishes with strong sweet and spicy flavors and a mild herbal hop bitterness.

Mouth feel: Smooth and pleasant, perhaps just a touch thin, with a little zesty carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Very enjoyable, almost like drinking a Christmas cookie.

Presentation: Packaged in a custom embossed twelve-ounce brown glass bottle with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

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.

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

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped MAR2414-FO5101057. Sampled on December 3, 2013.

It is an attractive looking well carbonated pour with a chestnut color and modest head that fades.

The aroma is vibrant with pale malts, gingerbread, cinnamon, and other spices. If I didn't know better I would think I was sniffing a pumpkin ale.

Medium body with some carbonation breakdown.

Like the aroma the gingerbread is front and center in the taste but the cinnamon spices also kick in and lead to a bitter bite at the finish. It really feels like a Winter Warmer.
