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.

Terrible see-through, clear amber color. Off flavor smell, doesn’t smell like hops. Taste is weak with no pale ale, just a cheap lager. no lasting flavor, but maybe thats a good thing.

Bottle. Pours a dark color color with a fair head. Aroma of citrus, light fruit and hint of malt sweetness. Taste of malt sweetness and light fruit. Mold bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Moderate body, smooth and flavorful. Easy drinker. Much better than expected.

Kind of mellow for the style but not really all that bad. A lighty fruity flavor with some citric hops. A little dry in the finish. Easy to drink.

"pretty good floral hoppy aroma on this otherwise average pale ale. light and refreshing, but not too complex, decent malt balance. maybe just a little light on the palate, but nice and fresh on tap."

Backlog rating on 9-14-2012 at Cap n’ Cork Covington Plaza, Fort Wayne, IN, beer tasting. This bottled beer forms a small tan head that is mostly lasting, golden hazy body, very little carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt, citrus hops and fruity. The flavor is malt, fruity and spicy hops. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this is a different take on this beer’s style and not one that has me raving about it. It is not a "bad" beer. It does not appeal enough to me to want it again. The flavor was somewhat odd.

Freebie from my friend Sarah! Thanx Babe! This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a slim foamy to bubbly white head that quickly died to nothing, lacing - uh...what lacing, it wasn’t exactly there. The smell was definitely better as it had a light touch of hibiscus and slight sweet to spicy orange peel. The taste was semi-sweet rolling along the hibiscus and slightly sweet/spicy orange peel. On the palate, this one sat about/at a fairly decent light to medium on the body. Sessionable - definitely, if I wanted to I’d pound these away until the cows came home. Overall, Belgian pale ale? Uh...okay, well, uh...slightly. To me its good, but would I seek it out? Hmmm...probably not, nice to try. Thanks Coors for the tick.

The body has a deep golden color with very good clarity. On top the head builds up a light fluffy layer of soapy foam before quickly fading down to a small ring on the top. It is just off white in color and its lacing is very slick and slides down the glass. The aroma has a light sweetness of malt with a hint of citrus and a very slight spicy accent. The main body has an almost honey like sweetness with a slight hint of citrus, mild spices and a fruity melon like thing going on. There are some light hop notes as well that work nicely with the subtle spices. It finishes on the sweet side with a smooth, wet and mellow texture. Its carbonation is soft and its medium gives it an easy drinkability.
