Tmoney99 (11099) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2006
Tap at hotel in downtown Cincinnati. Poured dark amber with an average frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Moderate malty aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish. Better than my expectations.

Dogbrick (8683) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2006
Sample at AleFest Dayton: Well the beer drinkers of Ohio have spoken and this is the result. Dark golden color with a thin white head that does not last. Minimal lacing too. The aroma is difficult to detect, but there is a bit of malt in there. Light-bodied and clean with mild malt and fruit flavors. The finish is short and sweet. While I can appreciate what A-B is trying to do here, the execution leaves something to be desired.

thedm (4972) - Fort Wayne, USA - NOV 8, 2006
This draft brew from the Oktoberfest Zinzinati poured a head of medium sized white colored bubbles that was fully diminished and left behind a transparent softly carbonated orange colored body. The almost non-existant aroma was malty. The mildly vinous mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish with a mellow aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of mild astringent malt hops and mild orange. Not one that I would buy again.

Aurelius (4381) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2006 Fruity,yeasty and slightly sulphur aroma. Initially tart, moving quickly to stock lager bittering. Medium body. Very clear, solid gold. Finish is a resurgent bitterness. Sweetens up a bit as it warms. Clean, but unremarkable. On tap, Winking Lizard, Cleveland.

hotstuff (4284) - Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Draft at Oktoberfest Zinzinnati. Small ivory head that was mostly lasting witih minimal lacing, minimal carbonation, and transparent. Malty nose. Malty and somewhat of a fruit flavor. Finishes somewhat sweet. Tingly mouthfeel. Better than what I was expecting.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2006
on tap at Barley’s Smokehouse - Pours golden with a short offwhite head that fades quick. Aromas of light bready malt. Flavor is bready but there is some fruity sweet flavor there as well and a whole bunch of alcohol. Mostly evident in the finish which is bready yet quite alcoholic. Definitely better than a budweiser but not exactly a micro either..

mkobes (2141) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Bottle. Clear golden in color with a nice white head. Malty and hoppy aroma. Fruity malty flavor. Sweet tasting. Finish is sweet. Ok.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - NOV 1, 2006
Pours golden with a small, rapidly disapating white head. LIght hoppish aroma with some malt. Flavor has some malty character with a touch of hops. Overall a decent beer.

b33r (685) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2007 12/06: Very nice. Looks great, light orange. It’s light,sweet and fruity. Got on tap at Ray’s Place in Kent, OH.

1/07: The bartender at BW3 in Streetsboro told me I was the first person to order this since they got it last summer..still good. Nice looking cloudy bright orange in color. Great unique fruity flavor with slight malt flavor. Smooth and easy to drink, and the aftertaste reminded me of those orange circus peanuts.

AB needs to do a little better marketing to get word out on this...first person to drink it in 7 months- that’s crazy.

not too bad, reminded me of a drink that was not quite fully mixed. didn’t know that that was A/B, but after finding this out rather impressed with their attempt. On tap, w lizard, canton.
