Rising Moon Spring Ale

BA Review #1400 – not a classic!
Looks like this got to ATL in the last few days. I’ve seen a few six packs around in the last couple of days, and I tasted this as a 16oz pour at Taco Mac, East-West Connector, Austell, Atlanta, GA, USA. Charged me $3.98 for the pint. Served with an orange slice…mmmm!!!
I like the packaging – fresh, green look to the label, immediately distinguishable as a Blue Moon/Coors product. Label gives it an extra 0.5 points on the “appearance” score.
Typical macro pour, with slightly better lace and head than expected. Still very macro looking with the golden yellow body, great clarity and lively carbonation.
Largely devoid of aroma and taste. Has a slightly citrus note, which to me is more grapefruit than lime like, but to be honest when it is this close to water it hardly matters.
On the plus side quite crisp and refreshing, but strictly from a “good on a very hot day” angle.
I dunno – a missed opportunity that could be better but ultimately disappoints. Another token gesture from the big boys, such as a shame they don’t REALLY go fo it with TASTE!
