3.63/5  rDev +14.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Firestone restaurant pint glass
From: Target in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $15.99 for the Brewmaster’s Seasonal Sampler variety 12-pack
Purchased: April 17, 2013
Consumed: April 19, 2013
Misc.: N/A

Poured a caramel copper color with two fingers of khaki white head. Sporadic foamy lacing on the sides. Good retention all the way down.

Definitely malt heavy on the sniff. Got lemon grass, honey, caramel, bread and cereal. Some lingering citrus hops (orange peel) after the forward malts. A little bit of iced tea as well.

Tasted pretty close to the nose. Really got that sugary iced tea taste more than anything else. Also lemon grass, honey, bread, faint caramel, orange peel and some rye.

Medium body. Creamy-to-sticky texture. Average-to-lively (above average) carbonation. Smooth, refreshing finish.

Very good Belgian Pale Ale. I’ve been pleasantly surprised with this Blue Moon variety 12-pack. I’d have this again for sure.

Very good! Loved it! Surprised I liked it so much! Not bitter smooth but flavorful! Didn't taste the orange! Which is good because I don't like orange 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.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.
