COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly Known as Valencia Amber Ale

Our limited-release Valencia Amber Ale is crafted with roasted malts, Valencia orange peel, and a touch of wheat for an uplifting orange, caramel aroma. It’s the perfect inspiration for taking advantage of the season.

subsonic (82) - Pataskala, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2013
"Pours burnt amber with a thin ringed head and minimal lacing. Aroma has a hint of orange that accents an otherwise indefinable musk. The initial sip is a tame caramel malt flavor. The whole thing falls apart on the back end though, where the palate is flooded with the taste of stale wheat. The body is also a little watered down."

Amber with a quickly fading beige cap. Aroma is bready and yeasty with orange and some caramel. Taste is sweet and fruity with orange, grains, caramel and some artificial aspects to it.

Orange pour with an aroma of orange and wheat. Mostly orange flavor with some wheat. Thin body. Easy to drink.

Tap @ The Gold Coast. Not very flavorful. Virtually no hops. Not much going on at all actually. Not offensive, just very dull.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Rated on 8-25-2013 (Bottle) When poured, this beer has a medium sized frothy off-white head that mostly diminished, transparent body, one ring of lacing, slow rising carbonation, and an orange hue. The Aroma is malty, wheat, hint of caramel, and hints of orange. The Taste is semi-sweet, malty, wheat, hint of citrus, and light toffee. The Palate is smooth and this is a light bodied beer. Overall, this beer is quaffable, but the taste of this beer is bland and boring and did not leave me wanting to drink this beer again. It is not a bad beer per se, it just does not have have a lot of character to it for me to desire to want this beer again.

Yeasty aroma. Cloudy orange-ish pour. Heavy mouthfeel like regular BM. A bit acidic, but no real distinct flavors to speak of. The heavy mouthfeel makes this not very drinkable, yet it doesn’t have any complexity or interesting taste.

Not a good mix of orange and amber, just a mess of flavors that don't work well together. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10
