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.

Copper with lots of tan head. Bread and cereal malt with a little citrus aroma. Taste is fairly hoppy with a little metallic taste, bread and caramel and a little bit of grain. Not too bad.

Murky brownish, copper color with a thick tan head. The lacing was minimal. The smell was bready with nice hints of citrus fruits and caramel. The taste was of bready malts and citrus. The mouthfeel was thick and the carbonation was medium.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a medium orange with a nice white head. Aroma of pine, malt, and a bit of citrus. Taste is malt, caramel, pine, and citrus. Nice light easy to drink ale. Liked the rye and barley malt combination.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 28, 2012
Bottle. As with the other Real Ale beers I tried, this one is on the lighter end of the spectrum for its style. The rye was clearly apparent, giving it a peppery, somewhat abrasive finish after a thin, sweet body. The hopping is minimal and leans on the spicy side.

beermanusa (77) - California, USA - FEB 28, 2012
Brown color ale with a big foamy head with good retention but no lacing. Aroma of rye malt with some light bitter hops also noticeable. Taste is a mix between some bitter hops with loads of rye malt which provide some complexity.

ben4321 (4472) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 20, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2012 Location: Bottle at a bar in Austin, 2/20/12

Aroma: The nose is fairly yeast, some spice and bread notes are present too
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear orange-amber color, a small white head, no lace
Flavor: The taste is yeast, spice, and pale malts, lightly sweet and lightly bitter
Palate: The body is light-medium, it is fairly smooth, clean feel, and a soft carbonation
Overall Impression: I thought this was an alright rye pale ale, but there wasn’t much going on to make it interesting.

Laurissa0617 (10) - Arlington, USA - FEB 17, 2012
Smells hoppy. Has a beautiful amber color with a cream colored head. Tastes bready and lingers in the back of the throat. Pretty tasty.

thooper41 (549) - BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2012
12oz bottle: Appearance is medium brown with minimal off white head. Aroma is of fresh malt and some floral hops. Taste is Decently hoppy for a pale ale, but surprisingly crisp. A very easy drinker with some complexity as well.

jhamp9 (1233) - Corinth, Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Poured a slightly hazy amber with a small off white head with decent lacing. Aroma was floral hops and some spicy rye. Taste was more rye than the aroma. Also some nuttiness and hop bitterness. Very easy to drink. Good beer.
