look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Served in a pint glass, poured from a bottle.

A - A clean dark amber color with a decent head. Par for the course.

S - Fairly straightforward; a spicy, hoppy aroma. It's your everyday pale ale with some orange peel and herbaceous spices.

T - Very bready, good amount of hops for the style, blending well with the aforementioned spice. Nothing to write home about, but still very enjoyable

M - Feels fizzier than most pale ales, and tends to foam up as I'm swallowing it. I thought this would be a bad thing, but I'm rather enjoying the unusual feel.

D - It's pale ale. Not a chugging beer, but easily drinkable.

Blue Moon in general is definitely a great gateway into craft beer for those raised on the American macrobrew, and this offering is no different.

2.98/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Poured from a bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Light amber color, with nice thick and light colored head. The head lasted a very long time, and left a nice coating on the inside of the glass.

Smell: Pleasant, with a strong hops influence in the aroma. There is some sweetness and herb aromas, but the hops dominate.

Taste: A mix of hops and herb flavors, that make for an interesting Pale Ale. The hops flavor is not dominant. There is a nice after-taste, that lasts for a while but not too long.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and crisp, with a medium body.

Overall: This is an interesting Pale Ale, but I prefer others over this.
