Clear and golden with a mild amount of head. Strong orange sherbert aroma. Has a total orange creamsicle taste to it with a hint of beer in it. Its pretty damn good for what it is.

transparent golden with a lonely halo of lathering whiteness...an orangey-sweet yet musty and creamy aroma rose..soda-pop like creamcycle flavors danced about...a novelty i agree, yet lacking in the fault department..a plus, i'd say...a tangy orange-soda/creamcycle yuminess you'd wish you had till you'd had it then you'd wish it was more beerish....its what you'd expect in other words....

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2003
Orange/amber color,small white head that faded quickly leaving nothing behind.The aroma was sweet orange with maybe just a hint of honey.reminds me of that gummy orange wedge candy.The flavor is orange upfront with a nice smooth feel there is also a slight bitter orange peel coming on as the brew warms up.The honey doesn't make a strong appearance until the tail end when you can just detect it in the after taste.This brew reminds me of soda pop and candy but beer,it really doesn't give you that feel of being a true brew.never the less this is a pretty decent brew and would be great on a nice late summer day,not my idea of a winter brew.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 27, 2003
Pale staw golden color with a light fizzy head and no lacing. The aroma is lightly tart and citrusy with a hint of sweet honey. The flavor is well balanced with the honey and orange finishing the flavors. This is a very light easy drinking beer with some good fresh flavors. Another winner from Buffalo Bill.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 26, 2003
Pale gold with a foamy head that's slow to leave. Big orange aromas with citrus hops and some small hops. Oranges in the flavor, followed by malts, some hops, a bit earthy. Creamy palate, a fine thin body leading to a sticky finish. Interesting beer.

PhillyBeer2112 (2495) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2003
Enticing aroma of light malt, spicy hops and fresh orange zest. Yellow gold with lacy head. The oranges work less well in the flavor, however, with an unbalanced presentation. The beer is a tad too sweet, the orange flavors dominate and leave the palate wet and cloying. Not nearly as refreshing as it ought to be - and also a weird choice for a winter seasonal. A drier finish and it makes a good spring or summer seasonal.

Came a cross this at the local store tonight..had to try one. Comes in a 12 oz brown long neck.."Cream Ale brewed with honey and orange peel with orange flower extract"..Ok. Well this beer certainnly has a slight orange tint to it..if youve ever been to Scotland..it looks like Irn Bru soda..but with a monsterous frothy white head..but that goes real fast to nothing. Smell as expected is all orange..like candied orange to be honest..though some zest is there. Pretty good taste though..although the citric/orange taste is there the whole mouthful..its balanced by malty creaminess and the sweet tang of honey..not bad at all. Pretty smooth and creamy on the palate..but a nice zing too from the orange peel. An unusual beer but not to bad,,though I would be pushed to drink more than two bottles.
