2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
If I had all the money back Iíve wasted on blue moon and like products, I could go buy something really, really nice for myself this holiday. I keep buying them, they keep being around average, and I keep wanting to move on to the next beer. So agave nectar, may you be the last blue moon I waste my 1.50 on. Clear golden yellow with a large white head. Aroma of agave, salt, lime and toasted malt. Taste is sweet and salty with lime, wheat, malt and spices.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Shimmering golden pour, good clarity with lots of tiny bubbles, and a fizzy white head. Nose is malty, sort of grassey, and a little sweet. At first sip, Iím taken back in awe of the sweetness. A little grassey and some hints of malt; it gets a tiny bit metallic before ending in a rush of sweetness. Must be the agave nectar... Iíve had agave before, but this is way sweeter than I recall. Where is the malt or wheat to balance this out? Too sweet.

Not quite was I was expecting. Smell and appearance are ok, but taste is a bit off, and tastes kind of doughey. Not a fan.

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.
