This is not just Valencia Amber Ale but Valencia GROVE Amber. Special.
The copper-colored ale smells of wheat malts and the typical array of blue moon spices, plus orange peel. I like the taste, because I like orange juice, and it tastes just like OJ! At least it has flavors similar to that of good, fresh-squeezed valencia orange juice, the type served in Spanish cafes. As an amber, though, it misses the mark. Some pale and sweet malts lay a soft base, but the orange flavor dominates. The mouthfeel also reminds me of thick but pulp-free orange juice with just a bit of carbonation.
This 'beer' is enjoyable to drink as long as I don't think too hard about it. So I keep my beer review short and just enjoy the OJ-esque malt beverage.
