A - Slightly hay, but mostly clear brew. Wood varnish in color... slightly reddish brown. Nice thick and foamy head but not a whole lotta lace.
S - Odd. Bubblegum, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger. This is definitely going for the "Christmas spice" vibe. Not a lot of yeasty aromas that should come with the "Abbey" moniker.
T - A little more malty than the purely spice based nose. Thin chocolate malt up front, followed by a dry nutmeg and allspice finish.
M - Good balance of malt and spice, but it's a little thin. Boring but could be sessionable if you can find it on tap when there is nothing better available. Blue Moon seasonal brews tend to be ubiquitous at any decent restaurant around my neck of the woods.
This is like a store-bought Christmas gingerbread cookie. You can't honestly say that it doesn't taste good, but it sure ain't the same as Grandma's fresh from the oven recipe.
