3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
clear light golden straw pour with almost no head. nose of wheat and sweet agave is better than the flavor that is much of the same.
Medium carbonation helps to cut the sweetness, but overall this is a sweet beer. Very faint hint of butterscotch. not bad. but not my thing.

Draft that poured yellowish orange with big thick white head. The aroma and flavor were agave sweet and very cloying. The warmer it got the sweeter it became. Just not very good.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled. Golden in color with a small white head that is fizzy and mostly diminishing. Stale wheat and straw aroma, very faint, with a very light hint of something citrusy (lemon peel? Oranges?) - somewhat similar to a generic lemon-lime soda. Nondescript grains, hay and very, very faint agave flavor. Stale bread finish. Tastes like a cheap adjunct beer you’d find by the case at a Midwestern gas station.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rather weak - all over. Little aroma, head, and flavor. The mild flavor did have a bit of sweetness and fruitiness.

Poured from the bottle. Yellow color with a clean white head. Smells sweat with a hint of honey and agave nectar. Slight fruit taste with a somewhat acidic pallet.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with a huge creamy orange white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was soap, yeast and bread dough. The flavor was tangy and sweetish soap, bread dough and a bit of agave. Medium length tangy bread dough and bad tequila finish. Medium body. Not good.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a copper color with white head. Grainy, earthy, honey aromas. Earthy, honey, malty, dough flavors. Nothing great.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Least favorite Blue Moon I’ve tried. Aroma was very heavy, bitter, and nearly acrid. It had a medium to stiff golden tan head, with a hazy golden hue throughout.
The taste was at best mediocre, consisting of overwhelming bitterness, and none of the sweetness or floral notes expected with an agave addition.
The mouthfeel was the only redeeming quality of this beer. It was crisp and refreshing.
