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.

Central Market bottle. I’m not a Coors hater but this isn’t their beer offering. A bland, dusty amber ale with just a hint of citrus. Okay.

Patrickctenchi (4110) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Pours fizzy, amber-orange with a short, off-white head. Scent is strongly orange.... Taste is orange malt, not as sweet as aroma..definitely has the "peel bitter"... Overall, rather refreshing....still a Blue Moon, but better than most of the family.

monk191 (1093) - California, USA - MAR 2, 2013
A good amber! Pours a very nice amber color with a thick white head. Smells is of vanilla and caramel. Taste is very creamy, vanilla and citrus. Quite malty. Had on tap at the Relic Tavern. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IrishBoy (3888) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAR 2, 2013
12 oz bottle from a sampler pack my nephew got at Costco. Nose is orange peel (citrus oily), some bready malts, and a little floral. Clear orange with a small off white head. Flavor is a hint of bitter, a little caramel malt, and ahint of the orange.

12 ounce bottle. Deep amber orange color topped by a small bubbly beige head. Intensely aromatic citrus malt nose with hints of floral hops. tangy sweet toasted malt flavor has obvious bitter orange characteristics. Some yeasty, bready notes as well. Finish is slightly bitter and dry.

heemer77 (5109) - 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 (10099) - 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.

unclemike (2309) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - FEB 25, 2013
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

Bottle. Orange and caramel malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Over-ripe orange and light caramel malt flavor. Bitter orange peel flavor. A bit better than expected.
