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.

Great head and excellent orange flavor. I like it better than adding orange slice to a regular Blue Moon. I will be buying this in the future.hazy, white foam, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, average carbonation.

Actually better than standard Blue Moon, itís got a little orange flavor thrown in. The orange doesnít overpower it, itís a really smooth and refreshing beer. Also although itís treasonous to put an orange slice in your beer for flavor, itís somehow ok if itís oranged up in the bottle.

Bottled - Got this in a Blue Moon brewpack. Pours a golden amber color with almost no head. Aroma is citrusy yet bready. Some malts and orange. Taste is a sweet citrusy flavor with lots of carbonation. Overall a nice offering from BM.

onceblind (3933) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Clear sorta-golden amber, with a nice thick lasting white foamy head. Nose of pale cereal malts, roasted caramel, a touch of wheat bread, and a hint of dry orange peel. Nice sweet and surprisingly full flavor with tones of sweet wheat, orange peel, caramel maltiness, and a subtle grainy earthiness. Perhaps Blue Moonís best to date.

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

A: fruity undertones - orange and banana, some yeast spices A: amber T: sweet malts - somewhat bock-like, P: nothing special O: A good beer overall, but not particularly fancy. My guess is its rating would be considerable higher had everyone been told it was from <insert_popular_microbrewery>

Poured from a bottle into a plastic cup with a slice of orange at a hockey game. Iím kind of surprised at the low rating. Nice Amber color, small head, understated aroma but fruity refreshing taste and smooth drink.

Good crisp beer, not bad for the price. Good for starters to the craft beer world.

Was surprised how much I enjoyed this beer. A little too much orange, but the right amount if wheat. A very pretty amber color, about an inch of head to start, a little lacing. Aroma smells very citrusy and is pleasant and easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A good amber! Pours a very nice amber color with a thick white head. Smells is of vanilla and caramel. Taste is very creamy, vanilla and citrus. Quite malty. Had on tap at the Relic Tavern. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
