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.

A fantastic new bber from the makers of Blue Moon. Caramel flavors with the usual citris flavor of Blue Moon. Darker amber color with a white to copper head. Smooth start and finish; not as bitter as a lot of pale ales!

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2010 a delightful brew especially for the season. hint of grape like sweet flavor in a citrus hop profile. almost creamy due to a caramel like sweetness, with a coriander and flowery profile that only wafts though in the taste. i was somewhat surprised by this one as it is a macro treat! easy malt presence that blends in well.

Pours clear orange-copper with a large white head and lots of carbonation streaming up from inside. Smells malty, hints of bread or cereal, maybe toast, and a bit of caramel or toffee, and very faint hop aroma is also present. Taste has a lot more bitterness, comparatively, than the nose indicated, while still keeping the malty character. Medium-bodied with a slick, slimy texture and little mouth-carbonation, Blue Moon Pale Moon finishes strangely, cant place the word for it, but different; almost syrupy and fruity. Im not sure if Id call this a Belgian ale, its more like a pale ale; maybe they should just make a style selection for "Belgian Pale Ale" like "American Pale Ale" and "English Pale Ale".

A copper pour with white head. It has a moderately hoppy nose made up of pine and some faint citrus. The taste is crisp and mildly sweet. There is some slight bitterness leading up to a smooth malt finish.

onceblind (4009) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Clear copper amber with a thin foamy head. Nice nose of dusty toffee, pale grain sweetness, orange peel hops, and something slightly herbal. Flavor has some nice sweetness to it, with lots of caramel and belgian pale malt flavors coming through, just a hint of fruity dustiness, some pale fruit tones, and finishing with a little hoppy bitterness with citrus peel and gentle toffee tones coming back. Pretty dang outstanding from Blue Moon.

12 oz bottle. Pours coppery in color with a thick soapy head that diminishes quickly. Smells of cascade hops, very piney, with some hints of wheat and molasses. Tastes piney, spruce like, with some orange rind citrus, and honey and molasses sweetening it up for some balance. Aftertaste is bitter ans sweet. Pretty good stuff.

~Grassy, earthy hop aroma with honey and wheat, light citrus. ~Pours a clear golden amber color with small creamy diminishing white head. ~Earthy spice hop flavor with sweet biscuity malt backbone. Good balance. ~Medium light bodied with high CO2, earthy spicy bitter finish that lingers. ~I really enjoy this brew. Refreshing with plenty of flavor to make it interesting. Well done
