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.

A fantastic offering from the Texas Hill Country brewer (there’s a lot of beer in Texas, but not a lot of good beer). The color was a delightful golden brown; the head poured well but didn’t last as long as I would like. Nice aroma but not particularly remarkable. Taste and mouthfeel shine, however. Too many pale ales are thin on the front and rely on monster hops to carry them; this ale, in contrast, has a rich malt flavor followed with an aggressive (but not at all overbearing) hop finish. Apart from Victory’s offering, I haven’t had a pale ale I enjoyed this much in quite some time.

I just plain like this beer. Nicely hoppy which is right up my alley. Medium-ish on the palate, but with plenty of flavor.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2004 sweet malty nose misleading...not the best example of an american IPA, but very peppery spicy...fantastically warming the more you have...go figure...I hate to say this is the only beer that really makes this brewery unique...If you find it buy a sixer or a pint...

Light amber color with a thin white head. Spicy hop and rye flavors really shine in this beer. One of the best local craft brews available in Austin.

944play (359) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - AUG 9, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2009 12oz in bordeaux glass. Deep copper with loose yeast. Tangy citrus and mild toast nose. Clean, sharp, dry. Big, balanced hops. Rye twang is neatly astringent. Hop Rod Lite in the very best sense. I want more -- five gallons more! RERATE: On cask at Gingerman - unbelievably delicate floral and candy hop character. I can’t stop at one pint.

Pours opaque, hazy amber brown with a rocky, frothy white-than head. Smells sweetish with alcohol notes and faintly of rye. Tastes or rye and bitter from the hops. Not very sweet and almost a little sour, for a bit of surprise, but definitely bitter. Full Moon Pale Rye Ale has a medium body with a good texture, not out of place, and below average carbonation with a lasting bitter finish. This is a good ale, but Real Ale has some other stuff I really wanna try.

A great beer from some young guys in the Texas backwoods. Sweet and rye-y. Very satisfying.

Very differant beer. Pours orange with a little white head. Strong aroma of hops, friut, and grass. Intense flavor of fruit, citus, and rye. Thick on the tongue. Finishes strong with hops and bitterness. Good local Texas beer.
