Amber-colored beer with a foamy white head. I didn’t pick up any noticeable aroma and there wasn’t a very distinct taste either. Not a terrible beer, but it doesn’t do much to stand out.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle drank on the Metro North railway on my journey into Manhattan. Pours perfectly clear copper with a fine, white foam head. Bready malt nose with generic ripening fruits. Light to medium sweet flavor with a character defined mostly by bready malts, hints of toasty dough, soft caramel notes, slight bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with more basic, bready malts, faint leafy hops, some lightly dried caramel, doughy brown bread. Simple beer but fine overall.

This beer is decent but not great for a pale ale. If it did not come in a variety pack I would not have tried it and I won’t be drinking this again.

Pale amber color, not too hoppy. Reminds me of an amber bock style. Good with dinner not too heavy. Hints of orange but definitely not a pale ale. Not bad.

Pour light brown with lacing white head. Aroma is not strong of anything but a bit of caramel and a bit of malt. Taste is the defining quality. Sweet easy finish decent beer cheap

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Giannone, 9/213
Aroma: The nose is on the light side, some caramel malts, spice notes, bread, and citrus
Appearance: A clear caramel-amber color with a small froth of beige head and decent lace
Flavor: The flavor is a little sweet, malty, some mild hops, and a bready finish
Palate: The body of this one is medium, and it has an okay, but not great, mouthfeel
For a Blue Moon beer, this isn’t that bad. So, that’s about the nicest thing I could think of to say about this one... Anyway, this was an okay, forgettable beer.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz beer from a sixer bought from Fred Meyer in Salem
Clear brown,light brown,beer with a small cream colored head..
Smells of bread pudding,with vanilla a little cream of corn..not very Belgian but not unpleasant.
Taste is similar to the aroma but has an acrid / pure alcohol taste that appears now and again,it is NOT pleasant., some sweet candy sugar in the end.
Palate unfortunately is cloying and makes for a long period of sipping to finish one 12 oz glass.
Overall horribly disappointing. Nice laberl shame about the beer.

Pours a copper color with a thin off-white head. Nose is of malt and yeast. Fairly creamy on the palate, the taste is a nice balance of grains and breads with a hops kick on the finish. A well ’rounded" beer that pairs well with nuts or chips.
