2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle with a June 2014 date stamped on the neck.
Pours clear amber with a large and creamy tan head that has good durability and leaves fine lacing on the glass. The aroma is malty and musty with hints of orange and yeast..
The flavor is a little subdued but balanced: light bready malts with hints of wheat, orange juice, orange pith and grapefruit.
Light-medium body with good, soft, medium-high carbonation.
O: Refreshing but perhaps best suited for transitional (towards craft beers) beer drinkers.

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

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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Overripe orange, grass nose. Clear amber, medium head. Soft carbonation, medium body. Malty with an orange accent.. Very light fusel alcohol detected, almost unnoticeable as it hides behind the orange peel quite well. Respectable.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Orange colored pour. Small white head. Very effervescent. No lacing. Smells like corn and regular old macro for some reason. Strange. Taste is a bit better up front with a bit of a roasted note followed by corn. Bitter in the back and not very good.
