12 oz bottle served cold in a snifter immediately following a glass of Bluemoon's American Pale Wheat Ale (Spring Blonde).

Pours a clear golden-amber color with a semi-dense off-white head that partially coats the glass but eventually reduces to a thin partial top coat and a lasting ring.

The timid aroma features wheat, hops and some faint malt and citrus in the background. More flavor than aroma. In addition to the components detected by nose, there is a light citrus/lemon quality and a grassy note. A fine, lingering, mildly bitter aftertaste.

M: medium-light body; quite dry, especially in the finish; good, medium+ carbonation.

O: Not a favorite style. This is the weakest beer I've had from this beloved brewery. Still, it is good for style, well crafted, very drinkable, and rather refreshing.

Served in a pint glass. Beer is yellow / amber and clear with a soft white head, small bubble, some lacing, moderate retention.

Aroma is light and grainy with a mild very mild bitterness.

Beer is medium to light in body with a grainy aftertaste a mild bitterness, mostly a little sweetness and a decent malt character. Not a great beer but drinkable.
