For the price, this is a good starter beer. Easy and not offensive. A good beginner beer to step of a domestic light beer and into some a tad nicer. Is priced lower than most craft.

What can I say, it’s blue moon. Thin body, but they pump enough spices into it to give it a decent flavor. Would prefer not to drink this, but I’ll take it over an American Light Lager, I guess.

Heard great things about this beer in particular, all of them were true. It has that particular true Pilsner taste which doesn’t disappoint at all.

355 ml bottle. Pours a straw yellow colour with a medium white head. Aroma of citrus fruits and coriander. Taste is light sour. Above average carbonation. A bit too thin for a good wit.
