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.

Served on tap at Teak on the Hudson in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a crystal clear dark golden honey yellow to light copper in color with some moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy white head that quickly reduced to a thin film covering the majority of the surface and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: There is really not much to the smell of this beer - light aromas of wheat and grainy malts along with some hints of honey sweetness and grassy hops.

T: This beer has a light to moderate flavor of wheat and grainy malts with some hints of honey sweetness and some orange citrus. Additionally there is a very light bitterness from the grassy hops but that bitterness does not linger at all.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation.

O: This beer is nothing real special but it is enjoyable and easy to drink, I could easily see this being a good session beer for an outdoor cookout in the hot summer.

12oz bottle from CJ's Potsdam NY for 1.75$

Appearance – Clear yello/amber colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Grains/wheat, corn, grass, light hops

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an above average amount of carbonation. I can taste grains/bread mixed with corn syrup and honey. There is also some grassy notes and a bit of a cooked vegetable flavour. It ends with a slightly sweet aftertaste.

Overall – Not really what I was expecting.. it tastes like a euro-lager in some regards. Nothing really noteworthy.. just a hint of honey. Nothing I would buy again.
