Picked up one of the Brewmaster Sampler packs from Harris Teeter on an impulse buy.

Pour is clear golden, with a slight tinge of amber in the center. Head is minimal with minimal retention as well. Not cloudy at all like other Blue Moons.

Smell is very similar to a cheaper lager, but with distinct hints of corn and honey.

Tastes just as it smells, refreshing carbonation with good sweetness from the honey and good corn flavor backbone. Very interesting sweet honey aftertaste as well.

Mouthfeel is decent, seems to coat well while still sliding down like water.

Overall, definitely a good summertime/hot weather drink. Slides down like water with good refreshing carbonation and flavor. However, not really my type when I reach for a brew.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Light clear golden color with a white head that lasted only a few seconds. No lacing left on the glass, and a lot of visable carbonation.

Smell: Grass grains and some sweetness.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Light bodied and smooth. Some mild bitterness and a slight honey after taste that did not last long.

Overall: Honestly, it taste like they took Coors Light and added honey to it. It is not a complex as other Blue Moons that Coors makes. It is enjoyable and I do like the Blue Moon and Coors beers, just seems like they really didn't put a lot of effort into this one.

I was expecting something like a Leinenkugel Summer Wheat but was hugely disappointed. All I could taste was honey and hops with no substantial wheat flavor. It was hard for me to finish it. The younger folk at the neighborhood party seems to enjoy it much more than I did.

A-Poured into a pint glass. Excellent active bubbles with a moderate white head that did not stick around long. clear light straw color
S-Not much going on here.
T-Just okay. A very little bit of honey at the very end and not sure it wasn't in my head because of the name. Crisp but still has some depth, enough to keep me interested.
M-Pleasant and good carbonation.

Nothing that makes me want to spend my summer drinking this beer. Better than a mainstream beer but not anything I would seek out.

How did this win a GABF gold medal, pale fizzy golden, bright white head, speckled scattered lace. Aroma has cooked veggies and other cereal grains, with a mild citrus and honey blend. Flavors are cloyingly sweet, who wants to drink something this sweet. Crushing flavor of grains, mild citrus, and sharp honey sweetness actually making me gag. Mouthfeel is sickeningly sweet, cloying light to medium bodied high carbonation, induces a gag reflux. Overall I can't finish this beer, why is it sold in 12 packs, good lord it's horrible.
