Yuck, this is tragic. Lots of artificial orange flavors. Obviously nothing like Craftsman -- they use real oranges and it shows. Terrible.

Ernest (6573) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2004
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear dark yellow. Aroma is lightly yeasty (sweat, dough), with a strong note of orange soda (the artificially flavored Crayola orange kind, of course). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Soda pop, this is. Nothing more.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2004 Clear golden orange color with a small white head. Aroma was a mix of orange sherbet and vomit. No too appealing. Flavor was orange with vomit and bitter hops in the finish. Very tingly feel with a slightly dry finish. Interesting.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - FEB 21, 2004
Clear golden color with a small (quickly dissipating) white head. The aroma and flavor were completely unique to me in a beer...orange sherbert! Some floral hops tones, but almost nothing else...sweet orange and vanilla. Light, bubbly feel. Interesting brew...more like a wine cooler (or beer cooler.)

ampp (155) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2004
A golden brown beer with a lot of fruit aroma. Orange and Honey flavor. The aftertaste is like a 'Stewart's orange cream soda' which I would normally enjoy, but it doesn't mix well with the malt and alcohol. Orange Cream should stay in the soda world and not in the beer world in my opinion.

TheBeerGod (5489) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2004
Pours a translucent yellow with splashes of orange. Small white head. Nose is creamy orange, almost like orange soda. Pleasant enough taste. Laden with a candyish orange sorbet taste. Neither offensive nor desirable. I could drink no more than one of these, even if I tried. The finish is, well, orange. As another person noted, this would be a fine summer beer, or with a dessert, but this is more a soda than a beer to me.

This is pretty much awful stuff, it reminds me of drinking a lager beer after brushing my teeth.

I have a lot of respect for Buffalo Bills. Maybe it is all purely commercial, and I don't even like all of their beers (their Pumpkin...bleh!), but I love the creativity. This beer barely--BARELY--qualifies as beer, and you would barely even know it from a blind observation. It pours a orange-copper, and the aroma is distinctly of orange sherbert, one-dimensionally. The flavor is slightly different--Sunkist but also with a carbonated undertone that makes it taste like orange-flavored mineral water. I could barely detect any malt or hop flavors in a traditional sense. Only a bit of malty-sticky mouthfeel gave it away. It is very easy drinking since it is just like soda pop. Fun to drink, I think this could be very refreshing on a hot summer day. Worth trying, though I won't plan on drinking it too regularly.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 13, 2004
Golden color with a moderate light cream colored head. Orange cream soda aroma, only a hint of pale malt which you really do have to look for. Initial light malt sweetness followed quickly by an artificial orange soda flavor that continues through and lingers. A bit overboard on the extract, light in the malt and honey. If you like orange soda, you'll like this one.

bottled: my wife came home with this yesterday, figures. poured golden orange with small head that disipated. aroma definately all citrus in the nose. slight taste of orange (baby aspirin) at first goes away fast with no real aftertaste. no malt or hop character to speak of. reminds me of tonic water with orange flavoring. it says seasonal for winter, definately not for winter but summer, could be refreshing.
