COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Nice flavor that's almost like a light amber, the hibiscus gives it an added sweetness without overdoing it. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Bottle. Pours a dark amber brown colour with a good size white head, malty yeasty aroma, the taste is sweet with malt and some fruit, with a dry sweet finish.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear light honey color. Aroma of floral, grass, a touch of citrus. Flavor is floral, citrus, caramel, hint of hoppy bitterness in the finish. Aftertaste is slightly dry. Not too shabby. However, there are far better ales out there.

The head is medium, the body darkred-brown. It smells hoppy-malty. The taste is mild, a bit hoppy, malty, sweet, fruity. The taste is ok, just a bit mild. 12/11/10/10/12/10

En fût au Havana 1957 de South Beach. Une bière de macro déguisée en proposition artisanale largement disponible dans tous les «mojitos bars» de la côte est Floridienne. Dans son ensemble, je trouve que cette bière est acceptable et sans aucun doute meilleure qu’un daiquiri à la fraise.

I must enjoy most of these Blue Moons a bit more than the average. I found the aftertaste/stomachfeel of this to be quite nice. A light spice and hop to it. Certainly a drinkable beer and one you could use to introduce beers to the uninformed.

12oz bottle, given to me gratis by a Coors rep along with the rest of the Blue Moon gang. Pours copper orange with thin, lasting white head; not much lacing. Aroma gives the plain, slighty earthy/spicy nose that I associate with mass-produced English pales such as Marstons Pedigree. Bit of breadiness in there too. Taste is equally unremarkable: some spices and herb notes, a touch of biscuit and caramel, some vegetable notes. Finish is brief, not much of an aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel, Bland, inoffensive stuff: glad I didn’t pay for it.

Clear, dark copper pour with a thin beige head that has good retention and leaves a little lacing. Aroma of toast, caramel, citrus and floral hops and floury grain. Flavor is toast, dry hay, caramel, nuts, citrus hops, light floral hops and some vegetal and mineral notes tot the finish. Light and dry, slightly chalky body with a moderate, blanketing carbonation. Actually not that bad. Although it has some off flavors it remains subtle without being overshadowed by the vegetal and dishwater flavors I seem to find in all Blue Moon products.
