3.16/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Brown 12oz into shaker pint. Date printed on bottle smudged and illegible.

A: perfectly clear copper color as expected from a subsidiary of Coors. No head but a good amount of tiny bubbles forming a little splotch of white suds in the middle. Looks good, not special but good.

S: has that macro brew scent that pervades all macro beers even the specialty brands like shock top and blue moon. Otherwise has a pleasant caramel malt scent that reminds me of reds (which I love). An ever so slight hint of spice barely peeks through.

T: opens with a lackluster "beer flavor" that I described in the aroma section. Followed up by the flavors that match the malt scents described. Sweet caramel malt. Followed up with just enough hoppyness to balance and not leave you thinking you just drank soda. A finishing note of grain. Sort of lingers on the tongue and palate and battle between hops and sweet malts in a good way. The spices are completely lost to me flavor wise.

M: pretty run of the mill body, carbonated enough to not be heavy and thick enough to be medium bodied. I think they intentionally left it a little less bubbely than others to remind you that this a cool weather beer.

O: good, blue moon doesn't make bad beers really but never actually shines either. This is what one would expect from such a brewery.

I found this hiding in my fridge. When I poured it it has a carmel color body with a very little head. The smell is very faint of cinnamon and I get a grain also. The taste has a cinnamon up front and as it warms up the apple comes out. Mouthfeel is good and overall it reminds me of Christmas drink.

reviewed from notes 8/29/12
clear medium to dark brown copperish color, smells malty, slight wheat aroma with hints of tart apples. Medium carbonation. apple and caramel flavors very muted. taste more like spiced apple juice mixed with crappy beer in the forefront with a sweet aftertaste. thanks again for the disappointment blue moon! no caramel flavor what so ever... LAME!
