In this blog, we are sampling out another beer from the Blue Moon Brewing Company and the beer is called Carmel Apple Spiced Ale. If you read my earlier blog on their Summer Ale, you are pretty much know about this brewery. Let us get into the beer.
Blue Moon Limited Autumn Release Carmel Apple Spiced Ale is part of their fall sampler twelve pack bottles. It has a copper color without a head on the beer. The smell is caramel apple with cinnamon and touch of nutmeg to it. The taste is of cinnamon caramel to apple. It is sweet yet extremely drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
This copper-colored ale is crafted with caramel malts, cinnamon, and fresh apple juice to stir up the tastes of fall.
Thank you to all our fans that helped us craft this limited autumn release. For this fall seasonal, we blended fresh apple juice with cinnamon, nutmeg, and caramel malts for a warming spice taste.
Here is a description from their website (www.bluemoonbrewingcompany.com):
So Crisp, You’ll Want to Bite Right Into It.Limited Autumn Release.In anticipation of the blue moon on August 31, 2012, we reached out to our fans to help us craft our next Blue Moon®. We started by taking suggestions from our fans, and then we brewed three beers based on their input. Then came the hard part—tasting the beers. Our fans voted for their favorite, and with that we now welcome Caramel Apple Spiced Ale to our collection of limited seasonal releases. We blend apple juice with cinnamon, nutmeg, and caramel malts for a warming spice taste to stir up the tastes of fall.Available in 12-oz. bottles, Brewmaster’s Autumn Sampler PackIngredients and ProfileMalts: Pale, White Wheat, Caramel, MunichHops: Spalt SelectOur Twist: Apple Juice, Cinnamon, NutmegIBUs: 16Original Gravity: 14º Plato ABV: 5.8%Appearance: Rich copper with high clarity and a creamy head.Aroma: Warm spice aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg with hints of apples and caramel malt.Taste: A seasonal blend of spice and caramel malts that highlight the crisp apple taste.Mouthfeel: Medium to full-bodied ale.Finish: Spice gives way to a smooth apple finish that cleans up nicely.

In the end, this beer is shocking good and taste like by the name of the beer. It is a liquid form of a Caramel Apple you would get out in a farm or what your Mom use to make. This is the point why we drink these craft beers. It should touch our past experiences. This beer has done that to me. I really enjoy this beer and it comes accross more as a dessert beer. This is not a beer you can enjoy all day because it will be too sweet for after a while. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
