3.26/5  rDev -7.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours an amber-copper body displaying great clarity and sporting an inch of whitish foam.

Smell: Earthy, spicy-toned hops in the fore, though, some glass swirling upon the bar scares up some hints of raw graininess and notes of apples and clove.

Taste: The maltiness predominately tastes of mild sweet pale malts. A shot of Irish Breakfast Tea introduces a pervasive earthy hop character. Medium-light bitterness. Vague hints of spice-strewn apples slices. The finish is both dry and lightly bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-bodied.

Drinkability: Sure, it's an acceptable beer and all, but it doesn't particularly jump out at you as either an India Pale Ale or a Belgian-influenced beer.

On-tap at the Brick Store.

Pours a hazy light copper color with a half-finger white head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving light lacing.

Smells of husky pale and caramel malts with an underlying earthiness from the hops.

Tastes alright. As with the smell grainy pale and caramel malt flavors assert themselves up front before making way for strongly herbal and slightly citrus hop flavors midway through the sip. The ending is mildly bitter.

Mouthfeel is good. It has a solid thickness with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability is OK. I didn't have a problem finishing the glass although I'm not so sure I want another.

Overall I was a bit underwhelmed with my first beer from Moon River. Certainly nothing that I would drain pour but it's not something I would seek out again.
