COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Orange Blossom Ale. Inspired by the rich fragnance of blooming orange groves, this copper colored ale combines the flavor and aroma of real orange tree flowers with a well balanced, full flavored ale to produce a real treat for the senses. Munich and light Caramel malts produce a smooth, creamy malt complexity, and American hops give the beer a bright, refreshing bitterness and dry finish. The orange blossom aroma blends superbly with the other beer flavors, providing a unique dimension that is the perfect complement to tangy, herbal or spicy foods, soft cheeses or pastries.

Hazy orange amber beer, little white head. Light crisp palate. Creamy malt supports tart bitter orange and peel. Finishes a little over dry but that’s okay because I was expecting a sweet mess here! But it’s tart, crisp and refreshing!

bhensonb (11056) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Can from the Coop in Davis, CA. Sort of an orangey amber color with a slight off-white head. Aroma of grain with something lightly orange/citrus. Near medium body with fizzy carbonation. Goes flat in the mouth rather quickly. Pretty light ale. Not a great deal of orange. Mildly astringent. Begs the question: why?
