Blue Moon Brewing Company continues to impress with special variety pack only offerings, and this time it is their Spiced Amber. Pouring a deep ruby brown, a one inch cream colored head provides light lacing. Aromas of the Winter season fill the nose, mostly cinnamon, spice, nutmeg and brown sugar. Dessert-like flavors dominate the pallet, almost reminiscent of gingerbread, with hints of brown sugar and cinnamon also in the mix. The brew features a long spiciness in the finish, with a medium-light body and lighter levels of carbonation. Would be a GREAT brew on a cold Winters night, hopefully it will be back next year.

Cheers!

The beer pours a reddish-amber ale with a white head. The aroma brings me back to Christmas. I smell something that strongly resembles Snickerdoodle cookies, with a ton of cinnamon and sugar notes. I also get a little bit of toffee. The flavor definitely follows suit. I get some cinnamon and sugar, as well as some caramel and ginger. There is also some brown sugar in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice spiced beer.

Enjoyed In a polkas glass

A: pours a dark amber color with a 2 finger very ligh tarnish color that lingers for a long time and leaves nice lacing.

S: very spicy! Allspice- nutmeg, Cloves, and a very strong cinnamon aroma.

T: again similar taste to the smell, mostly cinnamon. Has a slight wheaty finish.

M: full body, good carbonation.

Overall, a bit too much spice but has good flavors. Can pair well with pork and possibly chicken, easy to drink but wouldn't enjoy more than one in a sitting.

Poured from their 12oz bottle from their Winter Sampler...

Appearance - Pours about 2 fingers of tan head, color of the beer is a translucent red copper amber. Very little lacing.

Smell - Cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, this seriously smells like baking cinammon rolls!

Taste - Oh my goodness, I'm drinking a cinammon roll, and this isn't necessarily a bad thing. Starts cinnamon and sugar, wheat bread and sweet malts take up the center, and your literally left with the flavors of having just finished a bite of a cinnamon roll or sweetened cinnamon toast.

Mouthfeel - Lite to medium mouthfeel, lots of carb provide alot of tingle and crispness, extremely drinkable.

Overall - I'm pleasantly surprised by the flavors here. They are definitely not bold or over the top, but they work for me. If you like cinnamon rolls or sweetened cinnamon toast, you will really enjoy this beer.
