Light brown in color with excellent clarity. There's a fingernail of light beige head sporadically found on the top. I smell caramel and ginger. When I taste it I detect dull notes of ginger and caramel, with the ginger notes picking up considerably at the back of the palate. The body is moderately carbonated and the ginger tingles the taste buds.

Drank from bottle. Slightly off color than what I expected. It smelled like gingerbread with hints of cinnamon. It smells like what the label is promising. Although it smelled good, it was overly sweet and unbalanced. Sweet upfront and a little metallic on the back end. A little lighter than what I expected from an amber. I normally like spiced beers, but this didn't do it for me. Just average.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a light brown color and it has a small off white head. The aroma is full of sweet spices. The flavor is sweet with some gingerbread taste. Not a horrible winter offering.

Blue Moon Gingerbread Spiced Ale brewed by Coors Brewing Company, with an ABV of 5.90% This brew pours out a nice light brown color , with an off white head. The smell is rich with sweetness and spices. Gingerbread Spiced Ale puts you in the mind of Christmas cookies, not saying that is a bad thing. You also pick up on some gains in the taste of this brew. The mouthfeel is nice and clean. At the end of the is brew there is a nice smoothness. There is nothing overpowering in this brew, it has a nice balance to it. Coors Brewing Company did a nice job with this brew. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4 out 5. I would get this brew again.
