Light (like pils) golden color with an aroma that reminds me of orange pekoe tea, meaning fruit spicy. The taste is dry with a thin citrus presence that fades to a hops aftertaste. Poor head retention, no lace, and only light carbonation activity.

Pours a nice gold-orange with a thin short-lived head. The nose is great, with lots of sugary orange. Reminds me of smalling Orange Crush. Very smooth and simple with a great orange peel finish. Not very complex, but fun to drink.

From Top Foods, Lake Tapps: The aroma was delightful -- made me think of an orange creamsicle (oh, days of my youth!). Light and fruity, but a slight orange bitter after bite -- probably due to the orange rind/peel combination -- the bitterness to the drink makes it extra great to sip when it's hot out.

Golden orange with a small white head. Smell reminds me of an orange creamcicle. Taste is orange and tangy- nice, but not something I'd drink on a regular basis.

Very good orange aroma. slightly darker than your standard lager. Flavor is light with lots of orange and some coriander. Made me think of soda. But I don't understand everyone who bought the bottle with the orange, that says orange, and then are pissed off when it delivers the orange. Extra points for innovation and trying something new. I like it.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 25, 2004
Surprisingly, I liked this ale. Very pronounced orange aroma and flavor. Nice honey balance. Could have benefited from a little more hop character. Zero head for a cream ale and this hurts the rating as it misses on style.

GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 23, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2004 Bottle: Take some Saint Josephs chewable orange flavored Aspirin, dissolve in Budweiser, and you will have Buffalo Bills Orange Blossom Cream Ale. I’ve tried 2 of their beers , this and the pumpkin, and both are gimicky-foo-foo marketing ploys. Does this brewery Have a true beer they call their "flagship?

Is it beer or orange soda? And where the hell is this "cream"? Taste starts off novel, but then turns in to one part water, one part beer, two parts faygo. In the end, n affront to both beer and orange soda. Didn't finish.

jsquire (3387) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2004
This poured a deep golden out of the bottle with a thin fizzy white head that quickly dissapated. The smell is all orange pop. If I didn't pour it I would not have believed it was beer. I can taste the honey influence, but the orange jolly rancher sweetness really dominates. Tastes like orange pop and not like an orange flavored beer. I wasn't interested in it enough to finish it.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAR 13, 2004
Very thin tasting, although there is a mild amount of cream flavor in this, it's barely enough to acknowledge. Very disappointed. The aroma is pleasant, if thin, and the aftertaste is similar to Fruity Pebbles.
