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

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Koningshoeven glass.

A - Poured a clear copper color. Decent head of white foam that quickly subsided into a thin bubbly film. Above average carbonation.

S - Malty with hints of caramel/sugar.

T - More of the same. Hints of orange and spice, with a dry finish. This ale reminded me a little of "Old Slugger Ale" by Coperstown Brewery.

MF&D - Not bad for a Coors. Tasty and very drinkable.

3.78/5  rDev +21.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours orangish amber with a white finger width head. Average retention. Resulting lace is spotty.

Smell - Slight spice on the nose, with a bit of grass and/or flowerly character... must be the hibiscus.

Taste - Starts with some mild caramel malt, then that flowery, almost like a mild honey hibiscus character comes in. Slightly spicy. Finishes with an even balance of soft caramel, flowery hop and hibiscus character.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium body. Somewhat Gentle, smooth and drinkable.

Overall - Not a bad pale ale here. Certainly the most enjoyable Blue Moon product I've come across. This won't blow the roof off the beer world, but it's approachable and entirely drinkable. Reminiscent of the Steelhead Extra Pale Ale.

I poured a bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance- Clear copper color with a half a fingers worth of head. Light amount of lacing.

Smell- Caramel malt aroma with notes of wheat and toast. Hints of floral hops and citrus.

Taste- Sweet caramel malt with a slight orange flavor and a hint of floral hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied and crisp with an average amount of carbonation.

Overall- This not as hoppy as I was expecting from a pale ale. Doesn't take like anything Belgian that I have had before either. Still very drinkable thought.
