Blue Moon Agave Nectar Ale

By: Craft Beer Deer

Blue moon agave nectar aleI’ve got a confession to make, and I hope it doesn’t rub too many people the wrong way. I drank a Blue Moon today….and I actually enjoyed it. Ya, that “craft brewery” that is really a product of Coors. Let the hater parade come out in full force. Blue Moon’s seasonal collection is bursting with flavor and tastes nothing like its macro-brew relatives. If you’ve made it this far into this post without shouting obscenities at your computer (or smart phone) and bouncing out of the site, read my review of Agave Nectar Ale below.

First Impression: I, The Craft Beer Deer, am a beer snob. Therefore, when offered a Blue Moon this afternoon, I turned my nose and pretended it didnt exist. After I realized that was the only beer available, I figured I would give it a try. The only thing remotely interesting about the bottle was the name. Something about “Agave Nectar” sounds pretty nifty.

Pour: I didnt pour this beer, I drank it straight from the bottle (I know, I apologize). Due to my lack of sophistication when enjoying this brew, I saw or smelled no head on this beer.

Taste: This beer is agave-sweet and goes down extremely smooth and easy. There were very subtle citrusy notes, but this beer was overpowered with the sweet, wheaty flavor that Blue Moon has become known for.

Grade: B

ABV: 5.6%

IBU: 14
