Appearance: gold with a pretty good size head.
Aroma: orange and slight fruity smell
Taste: Very strong orange taste especially compared to normal blue moon which I think gives off a slight orange zest, malt, wheat note. Not balanced all that well.

Served from a bottle and poured into a pint glass.

This pours a light orange hue with a thin fizzy head. It holds a bit of Orange on the nose with an apricot sweetness and an evident caramel malt. Caramel malt leads the taste with hints of Orange and apricot, sweetness from the fruity sugars and barley like grain. Certainly drinks easy but it's so thin it's hard rate it any higher. This comes across as the very definition of OK.

Poured from the bottle into a laser-etched Sam Adams glass.
Review from notes 3/9/2014.

A: Clear amber with microscopic head.

S: Malt and brown sugar.

T: Similar to a brown ale, tastes like it smells with some orange peel at the end.

M: Slight carbonation, appropriate.

O: Nice. Not as much of an orange taste as I was expecting, but a nice amber ale overall.
