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.

Bottle. Pours a orange color with white head. Caramel malt, orange, earthy, malty aromas. Malty, orange peel, caramel, earthy flavors. Not a great effort by Blue Moon.

maxwelldeux (3794) - Everett, Washington, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear amber color with a moderate off-white head. Nose is malty with a hint of caramel in there. Slight hint of orange in the taste, but it mostly just seems like an average amber. Meh.

Blue Moon finally meets orange, the way it was always meant to be drank. Actually comes off rather well.

Faint yeasty smell. Copper in color. Was excited to taste the Valencia Orange. However, didnít appear. Very bread taste followed by metal like I stuck a penny in my mouth. Very weird and misleading beer.

adnielsen (9460) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilburs Fort Collins. Pours a bit hazy, dark orange appearance with a small cream colored head. Heavy metal, blood orange aroma. Bitter herbal, mild toasted caramel, blood orange flavors that are completely dominated by a massive amount of metallic notes. Certified drain pour. Earthquake High Gravity Lager 8.1% easily beats this out in a head to head matchup. Fuck you.

Amber pour at the Phoenix Open. Sweet malts and a light orange note. Pretty sweet and very grain forward.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle.
Pours an average orange with a nose of weak malted bread and faint floral hops. Flavor is weak orangwe rind in a field of bread (toasted) and retarded flowers. Average mouthfeel. Forgettable.

trapped (891) - New York City, TURKEY - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle. Light amber color, foamy whitish head, orange aroma, slightly bitter orange taste, high carbonation, abrupt finish. The taste is quite strange, I am not sure I like it.

RobertDale (3705) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - FEB 1, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a light, clear amber with a small white head. Mild aroma of malt, caramel, and citrus. Taste is oranges, malt, grain, caramel, and spice. Just OK.

arminjewell (6417) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Pour on tap at TGI Friday, hazy orange red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of stale malts, some caramel, toffee, slight orange, sweet artificial notes, hints of slight spice. Taste is a mix of sweet orange, caramel, toffee, hints of malt, slight spice, finishing fairly sweet, pretty nondescript.
