Blue Moon kind of reminds me of this horrible Betty White prank show my Dad is watching... The first 3 pranks have been based around farts, porn, and porn. Pretty lowest common denominator and aiming for mass appeal. But unlike the prank show, there is some good here. Nothing jumps out, but it’s tasty. Unlike Coors itself or Bud, Blue Moon is trying. Just like an octogenarian aping Punk’d (which already kind of sucked). And damn it, that earns you some points in my book.

hotstuff (3950) - Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2014
Rated on 11-16-2011. This bottled beer pours a medium sized very fizzy head that mostly diminishes, orange transparent body, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, roasty and some wheat. The flavor is lightly sweet, caramel malt, wheat, and this beer finishes dry. The mouthfeel is smooth and this is a light-medium bodied beer. Overall, there is not much to this beer as it lacks a lot of flavor and aroma.

hockeybeerguy (910) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a brown colored body with a one finger off white head, moderate foamy white lacing. The smell had a lot of malts and sugar, really super light fruit very subdued in the background. The taste was overly sweet suggary maltiness, no balance. On the palate, it sat about a medium, fairly sessionable, sugary dry finish, bland sugary aftertaste. Overall, this is definitely a beer to have with dessert or for dessert, good for a malt drinker who wants a beer, but I probably won’t come back to this.

A shameless maltfest with unusual sweetness and somewhat flat. A nice change of pace, but not my favorite.

This is a memorable beer for me. Not because I enjoyed it. Far from it. Rather, this was the beer that I drank before feeling the effects of a nasty bout of (presumably) Arby’s-induced food poisoning. I don’t blame this beer for making me vomit. However, I found myself thinking while I retched. I was grateful that at least I wasn’t wasting a good beer. No, this beer isn’t offensive, but it has thin flavor and a flat body. It sure as hell isn’t an "Abbey Ale."

deyholla (5972) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear amber brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a bread note with underlying sugar and a hint of darker grains. Flavor starts with the same bread note that lasts throughout and is complimented by a bit of sweetness from toffee.

Tap at red robin. Average in every way. Oh well, it was only lunch time. Drink and learn.

The aroma is.fruit, caramel, buttery The appearance is deep amber, clear, white head. The flavor is diacetyl, caramel, brown sugar. The finish is sweet, light pine hops, no belgian yeast. Somewhat thin in body. Not especially good.
