Everyone knows the story of blue moon, I don't need to rehash it here.
It poured a turbid orane/amber, and what little head there may have been disappeared almost immediately, and has left no lacing as I've drank it.
It does not smell as strongly as I had remembered, and I'm a little disappointed in that. What does come through, though, is the orange citrus with a backbone of spices that I can never place just off the smell.
It's not a bad tasting beer, even if my memories are much fonder than the flavour sitting on my tongue right now. The corriander and orange are what really stand out. The impression it always leaves me with is that of good intentions watered down by mass-production and (closer to) mass-appeal. Unfulfilled potential is how I would describe it (and I don't use those terms often - a bit of a sore subject as I heard that label applied to myself consistently for about a decade. I'm getting too personal, but it's friday night at midnight, and I'm reviewing beer on the interwebs, deal with it).
Alot of carbonation, but still quite drinkable, Blue Moon is a decent in-between beer (more palatable than most macros, but not going to appease most craft-fans), but nothing special.
