COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly Known as Valencia Amber Ale

Our limited-release Valencia Amber Ale is crafted with roasted malts, Valencia orange peel, and a touch of wheat for an uplifting orange, caramel aroma. It’s the perfect inspiration for taking advantage of the season.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 28, 2013
A light copper gold colored beer with a lightly khaki colored head. The nose has some citrus scented dough. There was a little bit of a yeasty character. There is a floral hint. The taste begins to go downhill. Raw bread dough is tainted with some pecan character. There is also a little bit of a floral character. A chewy body. It is ok at best, boring and bland more than anything.

BeerandBlues2 (9446) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours brilliantly clear amber with a small, tight bubbled white head, clings to the sides and dissipates rather quickly leaving spotty lacing at best. Aroma is grain, meal, and toast malt with citrus notes of hops and peel, apricot esters. Flavor is malt sweet backbone with light hops and bitterness, orange peel, fruity esters and a sweet finish. Light to medium body and medium carbonation.

12 ounce bottle poured a copper color with aromas of malt, wheat, caramel, and a feint hint of oranges. Flavor is the same, interesting beer that had a touch of orange aftertaste. Decent little one off from Blue Moon

brenn79 (1486) - Idaho, USA - FEB 23, 2013
12 oz. bottle- Pours slightly hazy amberish with a one finger off white head. Aroma is tart actually, which is weird for this beer, also caramel malts. The taste is strong caramel malts, orange, less tart than the aroma, but somewhat there. Body is moderately thin, carbonation is high. Overall this was decent.
