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.

What a nice refreshisg beer. Nice reddish color with an adequate head. This must be a new lager being developed by Bud and they did one hell of a job. Two thumbs up

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.

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.

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..

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.
