COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tawny red and full of malt and hops, Full Moon’s unique flavor quells your palate’s longing for something truly distinctive. Marrying the smooth sweetness of malted rye and barley, the ale’s rich body is complemented by ample helpings of American hops. The culmination of our efforts is an assertive American pale ale, a hop lovers dream.

Sampled draught at The Flying Saucer, Addison, Texas.
Dark amber. Clean and reasonably malty with chewy mouthfeel and citrsuy hoppiness. Very bitter finish. Really solid.

Seems like a good beer, but not quite my style so it was hard to rate fairly. I don't know how much rye is actually in it, but I felt like I could almost taste it. Well made pale ale, just not my style.

Dark amber, lightly cloudy appearance with a blooming head. Fresh hoppy aroma reminds me of a homebrew I once made. Full bodied with good malt/rye backbone and a good amount of citrusy hop bitterness. Best Texas brew I have had yet.

Bottle. Looks just like the Great Grains Texas Tornado which everyone panned and I gave a 2 for appearance. A tea water lookin’ muck with a laced off-white head. The only difference is that this beer actually tastes alright. You can sense the rye in this pale ale as it leaves a grainy dry aftertaste. The citrus notes at the front help balance the beer.

Grapefruit hops overpower everything else. Acceptable but I don’t care much for grapefruit.

Nuffield (3665) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 24, 2002
Distinctive citric notes in aroma and flavor, particularly grapefruit. Struck me as a typical West Coast offering--no shortage of hops, bitterness all over the aftertaste--but there IS something odd here. I didn’t really place it as the rye until later when it seemed to suggest itself. Decent enough for what it is, but not something of which I’d want a second pint--way too harshly bitter for my taste. (on tap, Flying Saucer, Addison, TX)

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2002
A proud ale that hails from Blanco, TX, right in the middle of nowheresville. This is a hard-biting APA that has an odd something (must be the rye) in the taste that’s out-of-the-ordinary. My label did not look like the cool label above but rather depicted the Blanco County courthouse (how boring is that?!). Plently of bittering hops and I like the rye. At least it’s not watery like Yellow Rose and Balcones Fault beers.

Good twist on a pale ale. Cloudy dark amber color and great head formation. Aroma shows some bubble gum malt, lightly hopped citrus and spice. Palate is initially sweet and malty with licorice that runs through the middle, some peppery spice towards the end and a good citric finish.

Not Real Ale’s best beer, not not bad.

Good use of the spicy rye flavor with a nice hop finish. Above average pale ale overall.
