4.28/5  rDev +24.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a darkened amber brown body with an inch of off-white foam, for relatively short-lived head.

Smell: Toasted ground cinnamon powder with oven-toasted, butter-brushed rolls and maybe a lightly sweet-scented hint of maple or brown sugar.

Taste: Caramel malts, with a well-spiced breadiness as the cinnamon jumps in in a flash. Soundly sweet. Comes together for a flavor reminiscent of that sugar-encrusted, morningtime bread with the cinnamon swirl in the middle. A few stray drops of pancake syrup. Low, light hint of wheat in the background. No apparent hop character or bitterness, allowing the cinnamon to do its thing. Remains malty on the back end, and still with plenty of cinnamon taste, aided a bit by the fairly crisp carbonation. Finishes semi-dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. A hair above medium carbonation.

Overall: Surprisingly nice. Has, for me, a pleasant cinnamon bread quality to it and is, for me, probably the best of the Blue Moon series.

Serving type: bottle
