3.3/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

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.
