1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Light gold tint. No strong aroma. Light flavor that ends fruity. Not the best amber ale I’ve had

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle from the spring variety pack. Pours a clear copper with a medium collapsing off-white head. Aroma consists of wheat, citrus drink powder, oranges, caramel--all of it a little faint. Taste is caramelly sweet with the fruit taking a backseat; finishes a little dry and faintly bitter. Body is thin, mouthfeel is creamy and a little watery. Obviously nothing extraordinary, but there are no offnotes and it doesn’t taste too bad.

Aroma is wheat and tangerine. Taste is smooth malt and orange rind. The wheat flavor is very muted. Nice brew.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Faint yeasty smell. Copper in color. Was excited to taste the Valencia Orange. However, didn’t appear. Very bread taste followed by metal like I stuck a penny in my mouth. Very weird and misleading beer.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
