Blue Moon Agave Nectar Ale: Sweet but Lacking in Some Ways

Jun 12, 2013
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Easy- drinking; Easy to find across the country; Refreshing

Cons:Lacks character; A little too sweet

The Bottom Line: This is an average beer overall, but it is a good choice for a warm evening in the backyard.


A good, refreshing wheat beer can really hit the spot during the warmer months of the year. We experience warmth for a large percentage of the year where I live so wheat beers are often the beer of choice for several months. A beer made for this purpose and also widely available is Blue Moon Agave Nectar. Does it measure up to the competition? Let’s take a look:

Beer Facts and Figures:
 
Blue Moon Agave Nectar is a straw- colored beer with a tinge of tan, a clear body, and a clean profile. The off white- colored head of foam doesn’t last very long and the beer has a nose that combines scents of wheat, agave, and honey.

This beer has a sweet flavor profile. The taste of sweet malt is most noticeable, as is the honey- like flavor and taste of light biscuits. There is some yeast character as well, but very little in the hop department. The sweet malt is what you taste practically all the way through.

Blue Moon Agave Nectar is made using pale malt, white wheat malt, and Munich malt with Mittelfruh hops and agave nectar. The final analysis of this beer shows an alcohol level of 5.6 percent by volume and a bitterness rating of 14 IBU.

My Experience:

Blue Moon Agave Nectar is a very easy- drinking beer with a sweet personality and refreshing character. As expected, this beer is easy on the palate and devoid of much bitterness, making it a good choice of beer for a hot day in the backyard by the pool.

Blue Moon, as most beer lovers are aware, is Coors answer to the craft beer revolution and it has been known to offer some good- tasting beers that, while not among the very best in class, are still good enough to recommend. With Blue Moon Agave Nectar, the company seems to have relied on the same formula, producing a beer that is semi- craft in nature and certainly not bad, but also not among the best representations of its style.

The quality that stands out most with Blue Moon Agave Nectar is its sweet, honey- like flavor profile and its easy- drinking personality. The beer isn’t watery in nature, and that is good, but it is certainly an easy beer to drink due to its sweeter flavor profile. I could see some consumers downing this beer like there is no tomorrow. Without much hop bitterness to keep things in check, the honey sweet malt carries the day, making the beer very smooth and easy to imbibe with abandon.

But easy drinkability does not a great beer make and this beer seems a little lacking in several areas to make it worthy of going out of one’s way to find. Yes, it is very clean and the honey- flavor may even hook some consumers. But as a craft beer product, it is rather tame and not very memorable. A little more hop character would be a nice addition and there is a certain adjunct- like character to the flavor that I cannot get past.

Bottom Line:
 
Blue Moon Agave Nectar is an okay beer that most will find decent enough to drink. It is definitely one of those “acceptable, but there are better choices” type of beers that isn’t offensive, but doesn’t really rock your world, either. The refreshment is certainly there but the sweetness level and other factors convince me to rate this beer average overall.
