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.

This was a pretty decent amber. Nice and smooth just the way I like it. Can’t wait to try other blue moons.

has a bit a refreshing sweet splash up front that turns to an odd caramel taste. pretty average if not a little less.

Bottle. Poured an amber color with a white top. Taste of caramel, slight orange, light wheat, straw. Low-medium carb, thin watery body. Pass

Bottle. Clear watery amber pour with a small head. Mild caramel malt, mild orange. Quite boring. Bleh.

cheap (3802) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2013
So blue moon has now ventured into every major style. Yesterday’s 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.

Beerenberger (1265) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 10, 2013
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.

Pretty smooth amber beer with hints of orange and wheat in the taste. not overpowering and a pretty good session beer for a sprit day

queenholly (2611) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - APR 7, 2013
Bottle. Faint caramel and orange aroma. Clear copper with a large yellow ivory head. Biscuity caramel malt and very light orange flavor. Light body, moderate carbonation.

ThisWangsChung (747) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2013
Rated 3/24/13. Portion of a 12 oz bottle into a Hunahpu’s snifter. Hey, at least it’s not as bad as putting Budweiser Black Crown in it...from notes. A: Pours an orange-amber color, with no head. I’ll chalk it up to my glass being somewhat dirty at this stage. S: There’s some orange and sweet caramel. Pretty blah, which isn’t 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, I’ve had far worse.

decaturstevo (4664) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 5, 2013
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.
