2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
DATE TASTED: August 4, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Kisatskyís Tavern pint... OCCASION: convincing wife Shan that "Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives" is a mockumentary, not a documentary ... APPEARANCE: nice, lively orange-amber body; creamy white head that settles slowly and laces surprisingly well!... AROMA: caramel malts "round" the fragrant flower pot hops with some doughier, breadier elements--the citrus is subdued by an oddly malty punch... PALATE: medium-bodied, oily, antagonistic in its presence--mildly sessionable, if not for its Blue Moon calling card funked up aftertaste...TASTE: mild coriander sits amid malts that belie this beerís objective; mostly caramel and a 40 oz. malt profile that kills the enjoyability for the drinker.... OVERALL: another "miss" from the Blue Moon Expressionist Collection, though not to the extreme of the Blackberry Wit or the Agave--still, like finding out Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives" is not real, one feels this Belgian pale really is a distant attempt of the original...

Bottle, from mixed-pack. Poured a hazy, bubbly copper color with a foamy white head. Aroma was light pale malts, sweetness, lots of carbonation. Flavor was sweet malt notes, thatís about it. Nothing offensive. A little boring. Would probably only drink again if someone bought one of these box sets.

Not much going on hear. Like a cheerleader that cheers from inside a room. It's all just muted. There is no pepiness.. No life. No hops. No aroma. So I found it sadly to be a let down. A flavor flop.

High on drinkability but extremely low on aromas and flavors. Come to think of it, thatís the philosophy of the dinosaur brewers.

Pours a copper / amber color with a slightly off white head. Aroma is faint when cold but as it warms up the smell is of wet grains and light floral undertones. The taste was lightly sweet malts. Mouth feel is thin.
Not a bad beer but nothing outstanding.

"somehow forgot to rate this one...had to dig a little for the notes. not bad for blue moon. wither they didnít f it up, or i just dig the style. probably a little of each. still average at best, for a cool style, but something i donít mind drinking. the bitterness from the hops nicely offsets the slightly muddled malt and spice(?)."

12 oz bottle. Reddish amber with a thick frothy off-white head. Aroma is soft malts, flowers, fall spices. Caramel, corn syrup, spice, oranges.

Compared to other Blue Moon brews, I was pleasantly surprised with this one. The taste of hibiscus and sweetness draws this into a great balanced Pale Ale, despite its lack of hop. Still, though, I wouldnít trust Blue Moon to know what to do with hops if they had any so itís a good beer despite the ill-fitting name.

Looked like a nice amber color. I didnít read the ingredients before I poured it but I noticed a sweet / fruity smell. Then I read there is orange peel in it. It was medium body, average carbonation, medium sweetness, lightly bitter.
It was good.
