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. Itís the perfect inspiration for taking advantage of the season.

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.

I like beer and I like oranges but I donít like fruit in my beer. In this case however I really liked the result. A nice looking beer that I was expecting an overbearing note of orange. This beer had just a hint of cirtus, one brew I will definately go back for more.

Bottled - Got this in a Blue Moon brewpack. Pours a golden amber color with almost no head. Aroma is citrusy yet bready. Some malts and orange. Taste is a sweet citrusy flavor with lots of carbonation. Overall a nice offering from BM.

Refreshing. Nice. Light in amber color. Low head. High in co2. Leaves a tingle in my lips that is odd ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pale hop, nutty malt flavor. Not much on the tongue. Weak amber. Tasted more like a straight up pale. Good ABV though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

decided to get this only because it was a beer i had never had in a liquor store with sparse selection. Pours amber gold with fizzy off white head. Aroma of hay, light caramel. Medium to light bodied, high carbonation. Flavor is watery, light caramel and hay. Wouldnít have known there was wheat in it. Pretty bland and uninteresting, would rather have normal blue moon.

Sweet, with some light caramel. Light fruitiness--smells and tastes more like green apple than oranges. Could probably use some more bitterness to balance the sweetness, which is dominant--although the flavor is not strong enough for it to be that offensive.

Actually better than standard Blue Moon, itís got a little orange flavor thrown in. The orange doesnít overpower it, itís a really smooth and refreshing beer. Also although itís treasonous to put an orange slice in your beer for flavor, itís somehow ok if itís oranged up in the bottle.
