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.

Nice orange, hoppy aroma, copper color with a rather full foamy head. It has a smooth hoppy flavor with a lightly caramel like finish.

Light gold tint. No strong aroma. Light flavor that ends fruity. Not the best amber ale Iíve had

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 doesnít taste too bad.

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

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 (4171) - Snohomish, 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 (10138) - 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.
