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. It’s the perfect inspiration for taking advantage of the season.

Pours amber. Aroma is malt, Caramel, honey. Flavor is sweet with a lightly spiced hop flavor. Not bad but needs more rich, hearty malt flavor in my opinion.

Fizzy, honey medium brown appearance. Slight floral, malty aroma. Taste is a touch of citrus, touch of wheat, but mostly floral malt.

I was surprised by this. Copper pour with white head. Aroma musty malt. Taste sour and sweet. Orange is there but minimal.

EtTuCthulhu (1356) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 19, 2014
The appearance has a clear light copper color and a large slightly off-white head that fades fairly quickly, and the aroma bread yeast, doughy malts, and a hint of caramel maltiness. The taste mildly sour, slightly sweet, and a touch umami, and the palate fuses an average carbonation, medium body, slick texture, and a slightly sour finish.

1FastSTi (3344) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours to a deep amber body with a white head. The aroma has a dash of orange peel with a lot of amber malts. The flavor is very malty. A definite amber. The orange is subtle. I like this as an amber. But I don’t feel it needs to be advertised as orange included. Medium light body.

pumpmaster (1263) - Pembroke Pines, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2014
Sample from 12 ounce bottle at Total Wine Pembroke Pines, FL Better than the regular Blue Moon.

TYearby (7) - New Prague, Minnesota, USA - APR 10, 2014 does not count
Very mild orange smell with even less on the taste. Not a bad beer, but didn’t leave much to desire on the palate.

Finhead (1325) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2014
Clear, copper-amber with a minimal, white head. The aroma has oranges and bread with a touch of caramel. It has a light, watery body with average carbonation. The taste is sweet and slightly warming

GL2814 (361) - New York, New York, USA - APR 6, 2014
Not my favorite blue moon. The citrus is subtle, more in nose then in taste.

MercyDevice (365) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2014
Pours an orange-y copper color with a medium head. Thin and not very flavorful - I expected this to have more orange/citrus flavor but it was very bland. Drinkable, though.
