COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale Moon is a drinkable pale ale that has a distinctive hop aroma without the lingering aftertaste. This Belgian-Style Pale Ale is brewed with European malts, Cascade hops, and a touch of hibiscus and orange peel. These ingredients create a rich copper colored ale with a flavor complexity that one would expect from the Blue Moon Brewing Company.

Pours a light amber with average head. Aroma is soapy, with some light malt and grain. Flavor stronger with hop, malt, and yeast, also some citrus notes. Decent brew, quite drinkable.

3fourths (9345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2009 Nose is soap-heavy laundry detergent anise and candied/perfumed floral notes. Body is light, effervescent, refreshing, moderately smooth. Flavor is lightly sweet cane sugar and floral notes up front but quickly turns to sour, offensive fusel/stewed celery on the back. As expected. Belgian ale rating #100.

Very predictable hoppy flavor with consistent results. This is a good offering to get people interested in craft beers. Fairly spicy for a mass-produced offering. Overall pretty pleasant.

not much to go with, lighty malted with a touch of spice, hops are presence but hardly dominate. a touch of astrigent at the end

The aroma is inviting with pine hops, yeast, bread, citrus and maybe a touch of spice. The elements are good but somehow they fail to completely impress. The appearance is deep gold with an orange hue. The head is average. The taste is not as complex as the aroma. It’s got some soapy and astringent bitter elements but mostly it’s got a macro twang to the malt and a touch of citrus. Like the aroma the taste doesn’t work 100%. The palate is thin. Overall it’s better than most macro’s but suffers some of the same problems.

Maple syrup in color and light on carbonation. Very smooth but not all tha hoppy. A nice drinkable simple beer.

3.1
Shag (3001) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - NOV 18, 2008
An amber color with a soapy white head. The aroma contains some citrus and caramel. The flavor is somewhat sweet with some citrus, caramel, and a biscuit flavor going on. Biggest complaint here is the thin palate but overall not bad for Blue Moon.

3.3
lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2008
Clear amber color with a thin quickly disappearing whitish head. Metallic pale malt some citrus and a bit of floral (must be the hibiscus?) and that is about it. Taste is lightly caramel, amber malt, more breadiness and steely aftertaste. Nice cascade hop finish that seems to build after each sip.

3.2
Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 15, 2008
Thanks lithy for saving me from having to by a brewpack. But this actually wasn’t that bad. Clear dark golden amber with thin offwhite head. Sweet light malt aroma. Sweet vanilla flavor. Impressive for having the bluemoon name.
