I had a sample of this at a Halloween party. It was mostly clear and had a little tint to it. Not a lot of aroma at all bit a little grain. I read the ingredients here and wonder if I had a different beer. But alas. This had grain and grass with pale malts that were kind of soggy. A little spice. Not really a good anything.

Im pretty sure after this being the 3rd beer ive tried in the blue moon.sampler pack. That every blue moon beer is pretty much the same but with slight flavor additives. This is extremely average red.

12 oz. Clear orange-copper with a lasting covering of cream. Barely detectable aroma of flowery toffee and maybe some spice and funk, or maybe I was just wishing. Taste is bolder but is a muddled mix of tart berry, caramel, toast, metal, pith and touches of earthy coriander and dry cocoa. This reminds me of when your kid starts finger painting using lots of nice colors then decides to swirl all the colors together and ends up with shit brown. Medium body has a nice balance and smooth medium-high carbonation. Gets better near the bottom of the glass as some nice touches of pepper show in the finish, but in the end its neither bold nor sessionable.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from a bottle. Clear amber color, small white head. Smells like hops and grains. Tastes like a syrupy corn and hops based beer.. I don’t like it.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle poured into a lager glass.
Clear amber color with a small off white head.
Slight caramel malt aroma, with some fruit, bread and floral, grassy hops.
Sweetish malt flavor, with faint tartness, caramel, low bitterness, mellow spiciness and ripe fruit.
Medium bodied and relatively heavy and a bit cloying. Not interesting. OK.

I felt like I drew the short straw in picking this beer. Indeed I was yellow trying this BlueMoon Red. Scairt as it were. Even though I was up against it, I carried on. No one was green with envy as I slammed this swill. Indeed had I Blatz on hand this nefarious brew would still be resting in the fridge.....or down on the farm. Stick with Blatz and your shame level will drop to zero. Keep this on hand when you are feeling a little gay.

From sampler pack pours a dark amber into a nonic pint glass with little head that fades fast. Faint notes of sweet berries and yeast with some cereal grain. Medium carbonation, malt, fruit sweetness, dough, some lingering spice on the finish. Decent, not something I’d seek out.
