I used to remember liking this beer before I got into "real" craft beers so I was kind of excited to see how this one still held up.

Pours a rather unenthusiastic clear golden color with a slight hint of white head.

Aroma of faint citrus and honey. You pick up on the honey a bit more but it's still not enough to really grab you.

Taste is sweet. Sweet honey and citrus. perhaps even some sweet malt balancing and and wheaty finish. Kind of bland. Medium-light bodied. Wasn't the greatest but it isn't all that bad either. Still there would be other beers I would crave on a hot summer day.

Purchased as part of a summer variety 12 pack. 12 oz can. Sept 21 15 on the bottom

Pours near clear very light honey amber, larger bubble head stays pretty well and leaves an imcomplete film and some minor larger bubble lace.

Plastic sniff....hmmm...that's never a good sign.

Sweet and again kinda artificial tasting. Some honey, but mostly sugary fruit juicy sweet. Near cloying. Minor hop drying on huge rear side.

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.
