Pours clear copper with a creamy khaki head. Aroma consists of sweet malt, candy sugar and yeast. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied with sharp carbonation. I can see where this is an attempt at an abbey ale. Too bad it falls short and comes across as more of a "dumbed-down" version. Flavor lacks complexity and the alcoholic strength of an abbey ale. Full Moon does have a malty and yeasty quality to it in the taste, but it lacks any real depth of flavor. The taste almost has a seltzer-like quality, that although it doesn't completely wreck the experience, doesn't do anything to enhance it either.
Not quite sure why I keep pursuing Coors' Blue Moon brand. The white is average, at best. The pumpkin is lacking and this winter offering falls short also. I keep hoping for something from this brand that just never really materializes.
