12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

Decent head, decent lacing as well. Reddish amber hue shows a bit of clarity. Light breadiness, hint of tartness and a neutral nuttiness in the aroma ... expect a bit more. Nearly perfect smoothness, a tad creamy ... medium bodied. Maltiness is a bit thin, mild tartness reveals little and does not really go anywhere. Very modest hopping, grainy with a toasted character throughout. Finish semi-clean and dry with an almost steely after taste.

I expect a bit more from this beer ... not much but as usual this beer lands flat like the others from Blue Moon. Approachable to the masses which is what they are all about.

3.53/5  rDev +15%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Purchased from one of the local grocery stores.

A: A nice amber color but it has poor head and retention.

S: Malty with a little hop. Some fruit as well. Nice.

T: Malt, fruit, pepper and some sweetness. Complex but not great.

M: Smooth with some richness. Nice carbonation.

O: Pretty decent for a large brewer. Worth trying.
