3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 4-24-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a deep golden/light amber color with a one finger white head. The head fades very fast leaving only a light level of lace on the side of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is mainly of a bready nature mixed with some sweeter fruit like smells almost of a prickly pear and cactus smell giving a rather pleasant smell overall.
Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter flavor of citrus mixed with a good dose of a wheaty and bready taste. Flavors of honey (and maybe agave,;l again I am not 100 % sure what this should taste like so..) come to the tongue shortly after with some of the bready flavors dwindling a bit. The honey mixed with the wheat flavors are rather nice and with the sweeter citrus flavor end up leaving a sweet and smooth flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel-The body of the brew is on the slightly creamier side for a brew of only 5.6 % with a carbonation level that is rather average. It is nice for the sweeter and wheaty flavors of the brew and furthermore help accentuate the smoothness of the brew.
Overall – A bit on the sweeter side but not bad as the honey and wheat go nicely together. Well worth a try for its modest price.

12 ounce can. Honey gold color. Fluffy white head. Sweet corn syrupy malt aroma. Sweet fruity malt flavor has notes of agave and honey. Hints of hay and grassy hops. Medium body. Refreshing, but not complex.

Pours a nice orange gold with an offwhite head. Bit of haze to it, nice carbonation. Sweeter than expected. not bad for a mass produced bear.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From can. Gold pour. Average white head. Mild nose of mostly wheat, some cracker yeast. Light body. Taste runs sweet, especially on finish, and increasingly so on warming. Active carbonation, more watery than not, generally crisp. Aftertaste has an unsettling aspartame aspect to it. Not surprising, but also not all that good. Drinkable. If this is what’s inspired by wandering the Mexican country, then you are doing it wrong.

*Labeled agave blonde ale*. Not horrible but the aroma is quite weak! Pours ok - gold w/ a tiny white head & spotty lacing. The body is decent & pleasant on the palate. The taste is fairly bland & I’m not getting much from the agave. It’s a typical run of the mill summer fluff beer!

355ml bottle from The Beer Cellar 171013. As with all of the Blue Moon beers I have had this one is quite good. Faint sweetness in the background and even though the body is a bit thin and wispy in the mouth it still goes down a treat.
