2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Clear orange / amber brew with small pale head. Aroma of light malt and metal. Taste is sweet malt with a modestly dry finish. Wheat? Orange peel? Iím not connecting to them... But it is relatively full bodied and pleasant.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Date code: JUL1513.
Appearance: Pours out an amber-hued body, great clarity, with a not-so-great, very thin, white head.
Smell: Sweetish scent of toffee atop bready, scantly grainy malts with just a tickling of wheat and a juicy orange topnote.
Taste: Toffee-laced, bready grains, moderately sweet adjoined to a sip of everyday OJ. Minimal hop character, bitterness. Slight wheaty accent here and there. Orange peel taste on the back-half and into the drying, zippy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: While the VAA is not exactly bad, I just wasnít exactly keen on the flavors presented here.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at relatives house poured into lager glass. Coppery-orange color with white head. Aroma of light caramel malt and some orange peel. Taste brought out the wheat flavor, malt sweetness with some orange-citrus notes. Light body, high carbonation, smooth, quick finish. Not going to be really memorable, overall just alright.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
