Blue Moon Pale Moon

On draught at Buffalo Wild Wings, Douglasville, GA, USA. Orange body with a small head and some sticky lace. Slight haze to the body. Quite a surprising green/ fresh hop note in the nose. Agitating the beer produces even more of the same - wasn't expecting that! No Belgian yeast character to speak of. The beer is quite 'snappy' with some really clean lines and some fairly well defined fruit notes. Light zing in the finish and a crisp drink. Not bad at all. A simple beer which is a plus for me,...

Blue Moon Grand Cru

$5.99 from Green's on Buford Highway, Atlanta, GA, USA. It appears as though people are paying a LOT more for this beer around the country. It had LITERALLY been just entered into the Green's system, so perhaps it will be adjusted upward in time. I certainly wouldn't want to pay more than I did, though. Poured into the Southampton Weizen glass, the beer gives a nice head initially but to be honest it fades rather quickly and delivers very little lace. Requisite clouded butterscotch color in...

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...

Blue Moon Winter Abbey Ale

I HAVE DELIBERATELY MOVED THIS REVIEW TO THIS NEW LISTING (from the old Blue Moon Winter Ale), because I *think* that this is a NEW recipe for 2007 and should be listed separately. Maybe this is an error, but for now I think this is the right thing to do. If it IS correctly listed as a new beer, then other 2007 reviews of Blue Moon Winter should be moved here too; See this thread; http://beeradvocate.com/forum/read/1140400 2007 release, now called Full Moon (as opposed to Blue Moon Winter...

Honey Moon Summer Ale

=== New Review 06/08 - bottle === Single from Mac's Midtown in their mixed six-pack, $7.99. Stil VERY sweet even for my sweet-tooth. Remains pretty drinkable in SMALL quantities despite that as long as the summer weather is here. More than a couple and the sweetness would be getting to me. === Original Review 10/06 === Enjoyed this. $4.25 on draft, Taco Mac, Douglasville, GA, USA. Take it for what it is. Simple, sweet beer that drinks like a refreshing lager rather than an ale. Taste is...

Blue Moon Harvest Moon Pumpkin Ale

Nice color in the body, a kind of burnt orange with great clarity. Initially a decent head but fades very quickly to nothing. A little Pumpkin flavor in the aftertaste (a vegetable twang) but not much up front. The aroma has something in it too that I simply cannot place - maybe it's even some pumpkin!! Drinks well with a clean taste about it and a mildly bitter finish. Decent value at around $6 for a sixer, and I might just buy one sixer each year to have on hand for curious guests. I suppose...

Coors Light

This is an absolutely extraordinary product. Quite LITERALLY no aroma (I was tempted to give it a 5 for "exceptional") and very close to no taste. All that there is a slight bitter finish which lets you know that this is not just very, very cold club soda. I'm assuming that this is what the "brewer" is trying to achieve. It must be quite difficult to do if you are starting with malt and hops. My question is, "Are they starting with malt and hops??" Extremely pale yellow color, with zero head...

Coors

Above average looking (at least for the 45 seconds or so that the head lasts), aroma of sweet alcohol and a slightly stale cereal. No lacing, some bubbles rising in the glass. Some skunk in the aroma too. Taste is fairly straightforward, clean with no frills, with the exception of a harsh, bitter metallic finish. No hops here, just bitterness. Not the worst macro on the block, just about par for the course.

Blue Moon Belgian White

Pours a very cloudy yellow color with very little head. Frankly I found this very refreshing indeed. Definitely a good thirst quencher. It has a fragrant or floral taste that I thought I would find not to my liking, but does have an unusual quality to it. There are some serious citrus and floral undertones that give this brew a herbal quality. This is a very acceptable domestic, mass produced substitute for similar, higher quality, more expensive beers of this style and stunning for a Coors...

Killian’s Irish Red

$3.96 for "small", 16oz serving at Smokey Bones Sports Bar & Grill, Douglasville, GA, USA. When hunting around the USA for just about drinkable macros, this would be one that I would pick up simply becasue it was the most drinkable and tasty of a terrible selection. In the bottles served at room temperature, I used to think that I was drinking something half decent. On draught this is/was served at Arctic temperature meaning that any possible macro credit it would/should receive was lost. This...
