Aroma right up front is citrus /oranges. Disappointed that is does not have a substantial cream ale body or mouth feel. Light airy head, oranges dominate aroma and taste. A good summer beer, easy to drink and refreshing, but lacks most of the true cream ale characteristics.

pours slightly hazy veru light golden with a nice white head, some retention and lacing. bursting orange blossom water aroma - not really soothing - akin to some floor cleaners, some candied citrus peel, cream ale as in orange and cream-flavored things, dust-covered orange-flavored candies, bitter and lightly astringent herbs and grass, watered down yet sweetish pale malted bill. moderately low carbonation, light body - oily, very lightl astringent, semi-sweet and kind of bland herbal-grassy short finish. blah.

Aroma is a nice orange and citrus. Flavor is orange with a touch of "green" bitterness from the blossom. Overall not a terrible beer.

BlackHaddock (3605) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2014
12oz bottle on the balcony of my daughters place in Newport Beach CA on 7th July 2014. Cloudy light orange/tangerine with a thin white head. Oranges rule the aroma and taste (what a surprise). I thought it over sweetened with a barely sugar and honey feel to the overall taste and feel. Not my cup of tea, but I can see some people taking to it.

Bottle. Artificial orange smell, tastes like some sort of cleaner. Just gross.

Iphonephan (3162) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JUN 28, 2014
From a 12 oz bottle at the Beer Head Meetup BBQ in Falls Church, VA. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Aroma of powdered tang orange drink. Light orange soda pop flavor.

12 oz bottle from notes. Pours a clear yellow orange color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet soda like orange character, mild floral notes with base grainy malt. I will not have this again.

maxwelldeux (3542) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a moderate white head that quickly disappears. Nose actually smells like a creamsicle, with citrus and what almost smells like ginger. Taste is very orange and slightly sweet, and reminds me quite a bit of orange soda. Interesting beer.

HIGHB4LL (475) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Wilbur’s. Appearance: finger white head, does not last, golden yellow color, clear, slight lacing. Aroma: orange creamsicle, light yeastines, caramel, vanilla. Palate: light body, average carbonation, dry finish, coating texture. Taste: mildly sweet with a bitter lasting finish that is light. Overall, drinkable, and I love the aroma at first, but it burns you out quickly and the balance is off. Worth a try, and amazing with some icecream in it probably.

Very citrusy aroma. Color is light gold, slightly orange. Pretty crisp taste, but the orange flavor is pretty bold. It's almost a generic/fake orange flavor added. It still enjoyable but I probably would have more than one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
