2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
My last random beer of the night. Blue Moonís Agave Nectar Ale. 5.6% bottle from Sugaya. On popping it open it smells like a Bud, not a good start! Poured into a weizen glass which revealed a very clear yellow gold beer though it looks like a Bud. The aroma gave me some cream soda notes, a bit of spice & yes possibly some agave. The full bodied mouthfeel is nice but the taste is super sugary, crushed grain & a touch of spice. I feel like I am drinking a soda, what a let down...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler.
Clear deep golden color with minimal head.
Sweet aroma of honey, caramel and some malt, with faint nuttiness zero hops.
Sweetish taste, caramel malt, some vegetal notes of sweet potato, ripe fruit, faint alcohol and no bitterness.
Light bodied, not dry, easy to drink but more as a juice than a beer, and whereís the agave?

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Appearance: clear honey-gold pour with a thin, vanishing white head. Aroma: light smell, a little floral honey, some cracker. Taste: light flavors of honey, pie crust, lemongrass. Finish: nonexistent. Notes: Watery palate, light flavors, weak nose. My expectations for "craft" brewer Blue Moon are low to begin with, but their base model ainít terrible. Itís not that this is offensively bad, per se. Itís just that thereís nothing THERE.

3.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This beer is the closest to the perfect summer beer I have ever had. It is refreshing like a cold glass of water and quenches your thirst like a glass of cool water, unlike most beers I have tasted before. There are no outstanding flavors or any subtle hints I can detect. Just cool refreshing beer. Almost no hoppy flavor to it. Sadly this beer doesnít have much of a scent to it.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear, light golden pour with a white head. The aroma is sugary sweet with grains and light honey. Disappointing offering from Blue Moon (MillerCoors). Not one I will buy again.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: † Clear golden, thin sudsy white head, little lacing. † Browned apple nose. † Seriously, smells like half an apple thatís been exposed to the air for half a day, all brown and stuff. † Moderately sweet start, a little honey like, mealy, a touch wheaty. † Tastes a little better than it smells. † Moderate body and mouthfeel. † As it warms the smell comes out on the backside, old browned apples. † Forget about what style this is, browned apple is not a flavor I want to smell or taste. † Blech...

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours clear and gold with a tall, frothy, white head with moderate dissipation. Smell has a very sweet characteristic with aromas of caramel and citrus. Taste is lightly sweet with flavors of agave on the back end. Has a medium body with a thin texture. Carbonation is average and the finish is slightly sweet. A good beer for sipping by the pool on a hot day. Just donít let the beer get too warm or else it starts to get sticky sweet.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2013 From a twelve ounce bottle purchased at the Ferguson Road Krogers..- Alright, this is a wimpy wheat brew accented with agave, and it pours a lightly golden hued brew ewith a frothy white head and light agave (weeds) aroma. Iím not purchasing this one again, methinks..

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 12oz. Itís a more or less clear one, only slightly hazy, and topped by a small, dense, white head leaving some lacings. The aroma is rather weak, with a fruity touch and some faint spiced and citrusy hints. Weak flavor too, mostly on the fruity side, with a little sweetness in the back. Quite low on bitterness. Medium body, soft and velvety, in a strange way, sort of oily, but thatís not the correct term. Short fruity finish with some sweetness and a peachy hint. Well, itís not that itís bad, it just donít appeal to my tastebuds. 130829
