From the Blue Moon Fall Sampler 12-pack, the Rounder, at least for me, is the most underwhelming beer in the package. While something that I would drink if offered to me or if there were nothing better at the bar, it's not something I would go back to out of desire to try it again.

The beer pours a reddish-brown copper color that is fairly clear (no haze) but leaves only about one finger of head that doesn't come up very enthusiastically and falls back down quickly, leaving some film covering most of the surface of the beer and some decent yet sparse lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell is fairly straightforward: some noticeable if unassertive hop notes and stale bready grain, also some metallic whang that kind of kills my enthusiasm for the drink. Taste is much the same, though it's better than the smell: more hops (especially grass and grapefruit notes) helps a bit, but the taste of the beer is otherwise pretty lacking. Some malt sweetness and a hint of bitterness that is appreciated but doesn't do a great deal to cut the bready flavor, some earth, and again a hint of metal. Butterscotch fights a losing battle with the alcohol flavor. Mouthfeel is strictly average; not good, not bad, not heavy, not too thin. If I had to equate it with anything, I'd equate it with a Sam Adams Octoberfest (in terms of mouthfeel.)

This beer is strictly okay and definitely refreshing, but its taste leaves quite a bit to be desired. However, it's still a step up from its other macrobrewer counterparts. At least Blue Moon tried, but it seems they were trying also not to offend anybody's sensibilities with this drink, watering it down in the process. Taste it, you might enjoy, but I leave that totally up to you.

To good health and good beer.

Best before (?) JUL2913 etched ontot he neck of the bottle. "Belgian Style Pale." Expressionist Collection, whatever that means...

Pours dark caramel amber, clear, under a puffy and loose medium khaki head, that stays pretty well and leaves less then impressive high strands of lace.

Biscuity malt nose, with a hint of smoke.

Mostly malty character, with notes of light caramel, vanilla, light smoke and just a slightly hop filled finish. Ehhh, nothing special, suprise, pseudo craft beer for newbies. Not sure where the "Belgian" comes in here, but I'm sure its a well researched buzz word that drives sales.

"A drinkable but pedestrian Belgian Pale" So true I had to lift this sentiment from another review. Best thing I could say...this would work in a maranaide for pork or chicken.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Light brown with a thin white head that lingered. Lots of carbonation.

Smell: Mild nutty smell.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Light to medium bodied and smooth. Taste is watery with a nutty and malt flavor.

Overall: Drinkable, but another not so impressive beer from Blue Moon (Coors).

I was surprised by this macro version of the Belgian Pale Ale. It poured a dark slightly cloudy brown with a medium head. The aroma was fruity with caramel and that mouthwatering Belgian aroma. The taste was great with caramel, earthy hops, moderately sweet malt and a hint of banana esters. Although I am not usually a big fan of this style, I enjoyed this one from a sampler pack at a neighborhood pig roast and would definitely purchase a case if it is affordable.

Spicy nose over fruit, mostly orange with some floral, herbal spice. Pours brilliant amber under a snow white, clingy 2" foam cap. Palate is primarily fruit - orange with some herbal and spice notes but lacks depth and character. Also has a little sweetness that needs something to balance it.
