3.31/5  rDev +10.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

I picked this ole jewel up at my regular grocery store for $7.37.
I have had several Blue Moon products over the years and although I would not consider them a top notch innovator in the industry, I still enjoy their products.
This particular product caught my eye when it read "agave"---I know what it is but have no idea what it is supposed to taste like---so i bought it.
I assume that agave is sweet like unroasted barley and corn....that was pretty much what I got out of it. I have no idea if they use adjucts in their beer but it posessed that type of sweetness----and just enough bitterness to identify. Nice body- mouthfill and body were on par for a 5.6% abv.
I wish i could give a better reveiw, but I could not pull any real complexity from this beer....I liked it-better than my budget beer I usually keep in stock-bolder sweetness if nothing else-but not enough to spend $7.37 on it again.
Looks like i am going to have to give this a slightly better than average rating...3.25

12 ounce bottle, Sept0212 etched onto the neck of the bottle

Pours near clear, near yellowy lighter amber. Larger bubble, quickly departing head. Minor to no lacing.

A hint of wheat on the nose.

OK, working on staying positive, but this is some pretty insipid stuff.

More wheaty malts, not sure what agave nectar is supposed to taste like, but this one is on the sweeter side as advertized on the upper label

Only made it through about half of the bottle, rest went down the drain...
