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...

Blue Moon Agave Nectar Ale has a relatively thick, slightly off-white head and a clear, old gold appearance. Some thin lacing is left behind. The aroma is of sweet, bready malt (really, just a standard beer aroma). Taste is of sweet, bready malt, no bitterness, and some sort of steamed vegetable note. This is quite sweet. Mouthfeel is soft and medium, and Blue Moon Agave Nectar finishes mostly dry, refreshing, and easy going. Overall, this is a good beer, even with its overall dull character. It's worth checking out.

The beer pours a pale gold color with a 1/2" white head that quickly fades to spotty lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a light pale and wheat malt scent along with a refreshing agave aroma. The taste is average. It has a light, almost watery flavor that has a hint of wheat and agave. It's the kind of drink you'd like to have on a hot day, but that's it. It only faintly resembles a wheat ale. The mouthfeel is decent. It is a low bodied beer with adequate/good carbonation. This is a forgettable wheat ale that's watery and covered up with agave nectar.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – Pours a deep golden/light amber color with a one finger white head. The head fades very fast leaving only a light level of lace on the side of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is mainly of a bready nature mixed with some sweeter fruit like smells almost of a prickly pear and cactus smell ( I am not sure what agave smells like so..).

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter flavor of citrus mixed with a good dose of a wheaty and bready taste. Flavors of honey (and maybe agave,;l again I am not 100 % sure what this should taste like so..) come to the tongue shortly after with some of the bready flavors dwindling a bit. The honey mixed with the wheat flavors are rather nice and with the sweeter citrus flavor end up leaving a sweet and smooth flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel-The body of the brew is on the slightly creamier side for a brew of only 5.6 % with a carbonation level that is rather average. It is nice for the sweeter and wheaty flavors of the brew and furthermore help accentuate the smoothness of the brew.

Overall – A bit on the sweeter side but not bad as the honey and wheat go nicely together. Well worth a try for its modest price.
