I liked this light beer a lot....good taste, even better aftertaste, Good switch up for us at college, kind of a step up from cheap light beers.

Tap: Hazy cloudy yellow med head gone quickly. Light refreshing citrus aroma. Flavor has almost a dry citrus kick to it with almost no aftertaste. Has always been a safe play when nothing else is available at your local.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2007 Pours a cloudy orange, nice white head. Aroma is bitter orange peel, and the flavor stays pretty dominantly the same, mostly orange peel canít really taste the coriander when on draught but the spices are more evident in the bottled version. So many people diss this beer and obviously itís because itís brewed under coors, personally I can drink the hell out of it all the time, with an orange itís even better.

On draft at Panininís on the OSU campus - skipped the orange wedge. Cloudy, muddy orange colored beer. Thin head and no lace. Refreshing to drink - almost an energy drink - orange citirus notes and a hint of nutmeg?

Nicely done! Light & refreshing (and even tolerates the "traditional" citrus wedge very well. Spicy with citrus notes are complemented by a crisp finish and neutral aftertaste.

I tried this beer for the first time today at the advice of a friend. It was good! Next time I plan to put an orange in the bottle.

MIBRomeo (2569) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 28, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2004 a light yellow color.. lots of carbonation in the pour with a little soapy looking head that disapated very quickly. Aroma was of light hops and citrus... the palate was very light and full of carbonation even though the beer no longer showed this. I liked the light citris taste all though I felt it too mellow.. Overall I think this was a good beer but nothing amazing

Nice cloudy yellow appearance. Faint citrus scent and taste. This is really good and refreshing with an orange slice.

Pailhead (5450) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2004
On tap: Light citrus aroma. Cloudy orangish yellow with a small white head. Light citrus lemon and lightly malty flavor. Rather weak and watered down. Very little bitterness. Not much aftertaste.

This is my favorite beer as of now. But I am a sheltered lad. I like the flavor compared to most bitter and cheap beers that Iím familar with.
