3.08/5 rDev -9.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12oz bottle dated May 23 2011 into a frosted mug.
A - Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a billowing 2 finger white head that fades to spotty lacing. Bubbly carbonation is visible.
S - Light aromas of orange and lemon zest. Large amounts of bread and grain. Very subtle overall.
T - The taste is grainy and slightly bready. Citrusy flavors seem to be fighting to get through. The beer was served to me in a frosted mug, so it may still be too cold. The light fruity flavors do develop as the beer warms, but they're still fairly subdued. The citrus has a flat taste. Slight peppery finish.
M - Medium mouthfeel with a generous carbonation. The fullness of the body was surprising.
D - Low ABV allows this beer to be highly drinkable, but the lack of flavors keeps it lower for me. Still an easy drinker and I would easily choose a Blue Moon over other BMC.

3.29/5 rDev -3.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Pours a hazy orange-gold; I swirled it, but there was lots of sediment left in the bottle. Head is 4" in pilsner glass, faded to lingering off-white 1/2" foam. Little sign of effervescence, no lacing left on the sides of the glass.
Aroma: Yeasty and bready. Little there. Grain.
Taste: Clean, watery arrival. Hint of sweetness across mid-palate. Citrus on the finish. Whither the hops?
Mouthfeel: Very slight effervescence and slick-but-clean feel.
Overall: Decent example of the style; always a fave, never disappoints, but doesn't really set itself apart, either. Good for parties and happy hours in the summer.
