So blue moon has now ventured into every major style. Yesterdayís beatle rating. In my steeler glass. Slightly darker lager but not dark by a long shot. Smooth co2. Medium dull taste. Has a slight BMC rocessed feel to it. Not bad overall, thanks BM!. Perhaps some whiskey laced effect comes thru near the finish. Not impressed, thought this would be a little more mannered.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
The nose is very subdued - sweet malts and maybe some grains. Pours a clear amber with a none lasting white head and no lacing. The taste is lightly sweet. Light caramel, grain, bread, and a hint of pepper from the wheat. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Overall, nothing special. Would not buy again.

Portion of a 12 oz bottle into a Hunahpuís snifter. Hey, at least itís not as bad as putting Budweiser Black Crown in it...from notes.
A: Pours an orange-amber color, with no head. Iíll chalk it up to my glass being somewhat dirty at this stage.
S: Thereís some orange and sweet caramel. Pretty blah, which isnít too surprising.
T: An orange-y start fades into a finish of really bland wheat. If the nose was pretty blah, the flavor is really blah.
M: Relatively light and crisp. Still, the sweetness detracts from the drinkability too much.
O: Eh, not great. Still, Iíve had far worse.

Copper pour with bubbly white head. Aroma of orange zest and a flat maltiness. Light malt with a floral bitter. Medium bodied and fizzy. Not much to it but ok.

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Clear orange / amber brew with small pale head. Aroma of light malt and metal. Taste is sweet malt with a modestly dry finish. Wheat? Orange peel? Iím not connecting to them... But it is relatively full bodied and pleasant.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Date code: JUL1513.
Appearance: Pours out an amber-hued body, great clarity, with a not-so-great, very thin, white head.
Smell: Sweetish scent of toffee atop bready, scantly grainy malts with just a tickling of wheat and a juicy orange topnote.
Taste: Toffee-laced, bready grains, moderately sweet adjoined to a sip of everyday OJ. Minimal hop character, bitterness. Slight wheaty accent here and there. Orange peel taste on the back-half and into the drying, zippy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: While the VAA is not exactly bad, I just wasnít exactly keen on the flavors presented here.
