look: 1.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Pours a pale, watery yellow with a white head that dissappears so fast you better not blink. Lace, what lace?
Smell is missing in action. Just the faintest suggestion of malt, nothing.
Taste is better with some malt, some hops and a sweetness that must be from the honey.
Medium bodied, lighter effervescence than I expected. Nothing to recommend it though. Regular Blue Moon is preferable. Somewhat warming after 1/2 a glass.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

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.
