Pale Moon is a drinkable pale ale that has a distinctive hop aroma without the lingering aftertaste. This Belgian-Style Pale Ale is brewed with European malts, Cascade hops, and a touch of hibiscus and orange peel. These ingredients create a rich copper colored ale with a flavor complexity that one would expect from the Blue Moon Brewing Company.

From BA review on 2-21-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance –Pours a deeper amber-golden color with a nice billowy off white head. The head fades relatively fast leaving a little bit of lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell – The nose is quite light. Light caramel and toffee notes are the most prevalent. These are mixed with a little bit of citrus and some spiciness. Taste – Carmel malt with a little bit of roastiness is the first detected. A little bit of sweeter orange citrus comes and mixes with the sweeter malt, although the citrus is quite light. A little bit of citrus bitterness moves in toward the end and takes the taste to its finish. Mouthfeel – The body is light to moderate with a little bit of sharpness. The higher carbonation matches the sharpness well, but neither really complement the taste, and somewhat contend with one another. Overall – This is a rather average brew. Of the Blue Moon varieties this one is likely on the lower end of the scale. It’s OK, but I would take other Blue Moon varieties over this one if given the chance.

This class and assignment has taught me that I do not like pale ale beers.

Definitely a weak tasting Belgian style beer. Mild aroma and flavors. Watered down light, decent at best.
