Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Stones Nonic pint glass

A-clear honey suckle orange, almost no head with little or no lace

S-Some malt, not much else

T-as I told my sister-in-law, it has almost no taste. There's really nothing here

M-fair, nothing of note either way

O-Really nothing here to remember, what else should one expect from BMC?

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

Finally finishing my Blue Moon Winter variety pack. Damn, it's been a while... This stuff pours a clear tawny-amber topped by a finger of relatively short-lived dirty-white foam. The nose comprises caramel, biscuit, light greens, and a touch of orange peel. The taste brings in more of the same, though the greens are joined by strong grass and light pine needles to form a gang of bittering hooligans that mess with the already kinda so-so status quo. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Overall, a pedestrian BPA at best, one that tries too hard to be all Belgain-y and pale ale-y without actually succeeding much at either.
