Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a light golden color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading to leave a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is biggest of a grassy, clover, and lemon smell mixed with a light wheat aroma. Along with these smells are some very light honey and biscuit aroma as well with just a hint of yeast.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter and crisp flavor with some wheat and a slightly doughy taste. The sweeter flavors are mostly of a honey nature, but also have some flavors of a more sugary sweetness. A bit of lemon comes to the tongue more toward the middle, with the wheat and doughy flavors lessening at the expense of a light biscuit flavor. With a light grassy taste coming to the tongue at the end, one is left with a sweeter but yet somewhat crisp flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side. Both are rather nice for complementing the sweeter flavors all while keeping it more on the crisp and refreshing side.

Overall – A bit on the sweeter side but actually rather crisp and refreshing and a pretty easy going summer style brew; just what it is meant to be.

A: Pours a rich, clear gold with a fizzy white head that disappears within seconds.

S: Subtle aromas of wheat, honey, and lemon are just barely detectable on the nose.

T: Mellow notes of wheat, cream, straw, honey, biscuit, grass, and lemon wash across the palate. The finish is smooth and sweet, offering a final flourish of honey and wheat flavors.

M: Light to medium in body and initially sticky, though it dries out quickly. Typical of most Coors products, the carbonation is very firm, active, and heavy. This is harder to drink than I was expecting.

O: A very bland ale. Though it wasn't great, I think I prefer the original Honey Moon to this new incarnation.

A: The beer pours a clear golden body with a thin white head that quickly fades away.

S: Just smells like every other Blue Moon beer. Some grain and corn and a little bit of wheat.

T: This is actually not too bad. I am getting a bit of honey wheat and some corn and grain.

M: Very carbonated and a thin body.

O: This is not a terrible beer, but nothing I would ever spend my money on again. I could see enjoying this after mowing the lawn on a how summer day, but it would have to be free.

ya know.... I think ya just need the right stuff at the right time... because I KNEW what to expect from this guy, but the very cold, light, easy-drinking nature while I am hot and sweaty and getting ready for the Kings' Game 3 just tasted pretty darned good. I poured it softly so I wouldn't lose any flavor in the head, and I certainly got the corn-piss-adjunct in it, but it was okay. okay for right now, otherwise i'd be urinating on the bottle just about any other time I would drink it. yeah, I guess I can be a 'snob', but i'm a fair one, no? and as much as I abhor that camel piss swill bud light, they have a pretty decent commercial they're playing during the hockey playoffs....
