Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Chill-hazed gold in color, with a decent sized head of foam.
Aroma-Faint pale malt
Taste-Cucumber, faint wheat. The agave seem to work against the other flavors, lending an oily sweetish mouthfeel that seem out of place. Hats off to Blue Moon for trying to add to their flagship, but this one doesn't do it for me.

Out of the bottle the pour was nice and head was average and quickly dissipated.

Appearance: was golden to almost amber and carbonation on the average side.

Smell: agave with a slight beer aroma

Taste: agave with beer background, slight smokiness and faint cloves was found.

Mouthfeel: was average and taste lingered like an ale should.

Overall it was decent and reminded me of Amigos Tequila flavored beer, however it wasn't as strong on the alcohol side as the Amigos is. It was an alright Blue Moon beer not a favorite however pretty good.

s- Really not much of a smell at all.
A- Light to medium gold.
T- Not a lot of flavor, no real taste of wheat and mildly hopped, a very light version of a Blonde Ale, but also an easy drinking beer, NOT unpleasant at all.
O- I was hesitant to try this beer for a couple of reasons. I have found Blue Moon beers to be either good, or, 'Not so good', and because of the Agave, I can't STAND Tequila!! That said, the best part of this beer is the 'aftertaste'..I know it sounds odd, but I like the lightly sweet finish with just a 'hint' of salt...Maybe it's just me, but I believe I'll drink this again.

A - Hazy golden amber yellow with medium head about an inch that dissipates almost as soon as you pour it (45 degree in a tulip glass), but leaves behind a couple millimeters of clear white fizzle at the rim
S - somewhat sweet, doughy and grainy smell of wheat, yeast and hints of malt
T - Pretty negligible taste with regards to the agave. Not sure if this was a marketing strategy for those that appreciate a sweet beer from time to time, but the agave was non-existent; quite a disappointment in terms of expectations from the agave nectar perspective
M - light body style of beer with light carbonation; easy to drink with light hops and very mild watered down aftertaste. No bitter aftertaste with this one
O - a pretty average summer beer with nothing much to write home about, but a fairly okay beer. Nothing really special about this beer and with all the other great light to medium beers out there with true sweetness such as the hefeweizens and Dundees honey brown lager, why settle for this unless you got it on-sale like I did at your local grocer or package store

I will open up by saying that it is allergy season and therefore my senses may be slightly off.

a: A nice clear straw color with little to no head.

s: This aspect is most effected by my allergies however the sweetness was still noticeable.

t: Very delicious. True to the style there is a nice caramel flavor there that is tied in nicely with the sweetness of the agave.

m: A crisp finishing beer with a pop of carbonation at the end makes this a very nice mouthfeel. Very little residual flavor hanging around.

o: I really enjoyed this beer. It was a very well balanced beer and remained true to the common American Ale style. I would certainly buy this again.
