2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Capone’s and Collegeville Wegman’s. Pours clear copper with minimal off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, mild oragne zest, hops. Tastes of bready caramel malt, not much fruit in this, with backup hops and some late toffee. Decent, but not much going on in the nose or tongue.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Was surprised how much I enjoyed this beer. A little too much orange, but the right amount if wheat. A very pretty amber color, about an inch of head to start, a little lacing. Aroma smells very citrusy and is pleasant and easy to drink.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle - pours clear caramel with offwhite head and fair lacing. Nose is cardboard (much like their Spring Blond Wheat Ale) Flavor adds caramel, citrus and a bready body. no obvious orange peel. not like any Amber Ale I’ve had because there is very little hop to it. Mildly sweet. Easy to drink but quickly gets boring. the 5.9% ABV helps the overall experience. A wheat beer with identity issues, but what do I know?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dry, toasted aroma. Clear, marzen color, tall white head. Embossed twistoff longneck. Blue Moon needs to get some better differentiation on its labels. Pleasant toasted flavor - a little marmalade sweetness, some nuttiness that reminds me of whole grain bread, lightly bittered. Not overly complex, but pretty drinkable. A little denser and chewier than most of the Blue Moon offerings. Part of the spring mixpack, picked this up at WalMart in TLH.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This pours a semi-clear amber color with a slight off-white head. There is a mild scent of wheat and orange. The flavor is fairly citrusy but is less creamy and has more of a raw orange juice flavor than regular blue moon. Better than the average macro-brew but it still isn’t as good as the original. Finishes with a little bit of a tang taste.
