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? I’m 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 wasn’t 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 doesn’t 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. I’ve had a lot worse, but this one isn’t 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.
