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.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is of caramel, toast, sulfur, hint of fruit, noticeable oxidization. Big caramel flavor, followed by sulfur, toast, a touch of orange in the background. Footbalmed!

smells like blue moon w/ some orange peel and bread. Flavor has a bunch of weird sweetness w/ some sort of spice almost a really light clove, average palate fairly easy to drink. OK.

Brouwerij (920) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 20, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2013 Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a finger of off-white head. Settles in minutes to lasting cap with minimal lacing. Mildly fruity, wheaty aroma. Flavor is fruity, citrus, peachy, sweet up front with wheaty finish. Light carbonation, light body, and mildly watery texture. A mediocre fruity beer.

Iíll be the first to say that I think Blue Moon is perhaps the worst beer to crossover from macro to craft brews, but this concoction is not that bad. Has some orange in it, though not as much as the regular BM, and has some decent malt notes. Itís drinkable but thatís as far as worth noting about it.

Clear, dark amber pour with a 1 finger, off white head. Aroma of ground up oranges, dishwater, fruity, bready yeast and vegetal notes. Flavor is floury grain, metalic and mineral notes, greasy high temp fement, a nice, faint sort of floral orange note and more bready and kind of intense vegetal notes to the finish, kind of sulfery like cooked cabbage. Light body, moderate and slightly sharp carbonaiton and dry, but quite oily feel. I didnít really enjoy this at all.

íValencia Grove Amberí on my label: drank 5 Feb 2013 in my hotel room in San Francisco. The 12 ounce bottle was chilled with ice in the wash basin and poured twice into a plastic beaker. I found this OK: good amber hue to the body and an off-white head that didnít want to hang around for very long. Flavour wise it had a pleasant orangey feel within what is a malty brew that has very little hop action in the nose or taste. I prefer maltier, semi-sweet brews and this fitted my profile fairly well. One of the best beers from Coors Iíve had either sdie of the Atlantic.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2013 12 oz bottle. Copper colored and pretty clear with an off-white head. Aroma and flavor is toasted grains, sweet caramel malts, light citrus and light wheat. Light body with a thin watery feel. Pretty bland.
