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. Itís the perfect inspiration for taking advantage of the season.

Bottle at home. Aroma is of malt with very distant orange. The flavor is pretty standard, toasty, some sweetness, with a crisp and citrusy finish. Not much orange at all. Refreshing, light, and drinkable. Great for spring, but overall its very boring.

Barreras (968) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours a copper color with a citrus aroma. Taste is crisp with no complexity. Very little aftertaste, a good beer to have on a hot day but not very flavorful.

kramer (4896) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin wispy film. The nose is lightly fruity with a little bit of orange, some toasted malt, and a light touch of caramel. The flavor doesnít show much influence from the orange, save for a bit of light citrus on the late finish. The flavor is much more of a straight forward Amber, a mix of toasted and slightly caramel maltiness, minimal to no hops. A little sticky and clingy in mouthfeel with soft fizzy carbonation. Iíve had a lot worse, but this one isnít exactly special.

drjay44 (2608) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a very poorly retained, off white head over a clear amber (SRM 12) body.......nose is grain, light toffee/caramel.....taste is cereal, light toffee/caramel, slightly sweet, hints of orange......mouth feel light of medium, carbonation high. This falls within this very broad style primarily because of color. It is a rather dull beer with little to recommend it. BJCP 6/2/11/3/5

wlajwl (3807) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Aroma is light roasted malts, mild sweetness and a hint of fruit. The flavor is similar to the aroma, with a sweetish/smooth finish. Not bad.

Ughsmash (7122) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Bottled. Poured clear, fiery orange with a short white head. The aroma picked up sweet oranges and tangy wheat over caramel notes.. ok, but not enticing. The flavor found orange peel, tart wheat, and light peppery notes over sweet caramel.. more carbonation and residual sugars on the finish. Light-bodied with fairly high carbonation on the palate.. very drinkable.

J_man (697) - Tustin, California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Not much in the aroma other than a light malty sweetness. Crystal clear copper/amber color with a foamy white head. A good quantity of carbonation gives it a creamy feel. A bit more malt body and flavor than regular Blue Moon, but the orangy flavor is fairly similar (and good). Light fruity sweetness with a little tang and some vanilla, along with a little bitterness in the back for balance. Finishes creamy and sweet with a good lasting malt flavor. Nice, refreshing spring beer.

thornecb (4354) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Pours clear gold into a Sam glass. Bright white head with medium retention recedes leaving spot lacing to skim surface. Caramel and citrus aromas. Soft hay and bready caramel upfront turning to mild sweet citrus in the medium length finish.

dwyerpg (4528) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Another fairly decent beer. Not too wheaty, with some orange but not over the top. It sits a little bit in the stomach, but itís not heavy.
