COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the 1940’s, Belgian-Style Pale Ales grew in popularity and were ordered by the round due to their balanced taste. Rounder, our expression of this sessionable style, is crafted with hibiscus and orange peel for a hint of spiciness and touch of wheat for a smoother, rounder taste.

Malts: Pale, Imported Caramel, Imported Light Caramel, White Wheat
Hops: Cascade
Our Twist: Orange Peel, Hibiscus

Pours more brown than copper with an off white head. Unsure what hibiscus is. It has an interesting feel on the tongue. Unsure if that is what they mean by spiciness. I am halfway through and really am just not enjoying this one.

For a round beer with hibiscus and orange peel and blah, blah, blah (fill in your MillerCoors marketing blather here), Rounder is nothing more than a malty front end, bitter back end and not much in between.

Eh, a pretty normal unspectacular beer. Doesn't have the spice or orange that is claimed and finished in an unpleasant bitterness. Not the greatest of blue moons offerings. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a pretty unappealing beer. Smells and tastes stale and oxidized. Earthiness is dirty and bland.

12 oz bottle from the half case sampler pack purchased in Virginia. Many weaknesses and very little to justify a second round. Could have been much better.

12 oz bottle: Aroma has got caramel malt characteristics, hopping is more subdued, and a bit of glassiness. Appearance is a dark amber/ redish pour with a medium head that doesn’t stick around for long. Taste is good balances malt forward, but the hop are more present in the taste. A bit of caramel and some orange peel round out this one. Palate is medium to low carbonation with a lingering somewhat malty aftertaste. Overall, Pretty good. Nothing to loose your head over. Cheers!

More bitter than the other offerings from Blue Moon, the flavors don't mix right for me. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

scooterbub (793) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - JUN 29, 2013
12 ounce bottle from a variety pack. Pours a copper color with a thin light tan head that fades. Taste is of caramel, malt, hops and spice. Similar aroma. Has a nice body with a spicy dry and a bitter finish. Rather enjoyable and easy to drink. Well worth having again and one of their better offerings.

Bottle from Wal-Mart. Medium brown pour with an off-white chair. Aroma is brown sugar, spice, and cardboard. Taste is spicy cardboard. Finally some fruit in the finish with more brown sugar.

There's a nice spice level to this pale. It's relatively mild with a good balance. Not the greatest, but a good expansion to the Blue Moon lineup. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
