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.

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.

The Belgian pale ale from blue moon pours an orange amber with a soft white head. The aroma is orange and bread. The flavor baked bread and a hint of honey with orange. This beer is alright but nothing to take note of. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Copper pour with a white dissipating head. Aroma of hops with a taste of hops and citrus. Not complex but a really nice beer.

At a tasting, thanks kerenmk. intense and a little hazy orange colour, aroma of candy and sourdough bread, flavour of stale sourdough bread and quite grainy, feels plain. Drinkable but probably over the hill.

Bottle. Pours clear copper thin tan head. Sweet caramel and toasty aroma. Hint of citrus, overall mild aroma. Medium sweet taste. Medium-thin body, thin texture, above average carbonation. Crisp finish, not picking much of the cascade hops. Easy to drink but nothing special.
