look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75
A - Poured deep amber with thick white head that leaves lots of lacing. Lots of carbonation bubbles on my Boddington's pint glass. Looks like soda with a really thick head.
S - Sharp citrus bite, some wheat freshness, an open field like smell. Some hints of spice, nothing too special.
T - Some great flavors here. Some malty bitterness, a little wheat, then some huge citrus upfront with some hop bite. A little buttery biscuit on the end. Pleasant.
M - Thin and watery, a little character here and there.
O - Never really been a big fan of Blue Moon, although I do appreciate their ambitiousness lately. This beer is mere steps from being a great beer, and things only get better with age and practice right?

3.23/5 rDev +3.5%

Poured from a bottle, drank from a pint glass.
Appearance: Pretty medium to dark amber colour, with an appetizing orange/red. Head is not super thick, and dissipates quicker than I would have hoped. Little visible carbonation
Smell: Sugary malts and hops abound. A slight sour characteristic, definitely in a good way. Slightly toasty, biscuity Vienna malt. Some subtle fruity esters, but mostly sweet hops.
Taste: The sweet but slightly toasty Vienna malt is quite apparent here, and is balanced by some bittering hops. Pretty basic considering what this style can be, so it loses points here. Still tasty overall though.
Mouthfeel: Leaves a sweet, almost cloyingly malty aftertaste, which isn't the best. About the right level of carbonation (low to moderate). No booziness.
Overall: Nothing to write home about, but if it was between this and domestic American adjunct lagers, I would take this every time with a grin on my face. Its pretty light, easy to drink, and doesn't really offend. Unfortunately it doesn't impress or stand out either, so I wouldn't seek this out.
