1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
"ok on a 100 degree day, no more, no less. a nice orange peel aroma gives way to less pleasing smells as it warms, no complexity whatsoever, and not very good if not ice cold. this orange "amber" is orange atop a straw beer, so i’m not sure where the amber part comes in..."

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange color with a medium sized foamy orange-white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was Tang. The flavor was Tangy. Medium length finish. Light body. Pretty awful.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Like a dry mimosa more than a beer. Floral citrus nose followed by a ripe orange peel sweetness.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Adding orange peel to an American lager can’t hurt but I’m not sure it really helps either.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
12oz bottle pours an innocent clear copper with thin white head. The aroma pulses with Sunkist Orange soda notes along with a thin ring of powdered sugar. The taste punishes the wary with sugary Sunkist Orange soda like notes that are fully enhanced by the above average level of carbonation. I succumbed and poured most of it down the drain. This is likely a good beer for people who are convinced they hate beer due to its beer-y flavors.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a frothy white head. The aroma is fruit and cereal. Thin mouthfeel with a sour orange and tart. Not much going on with this one.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Thanks to swalden28 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a slightly hazy orange color with a white head. The aroma smells like Sunkiss soda with some grain mixed in. The flavor is just as bad, with a lot of sweet orange and biscuit malt notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(12oz bottle from Total Wine Arrowhead). Pours a slightly hazy golden color with thin white head. Good carbonation. Aroma has loads of orange candy, orange peel and some bread. Taste is sweet with orange dominating as one would expect. There is some light bitterness as well. Thin bodied with an oily texture. Smooth, sweet finish with carbonation being prickly on the tongue. Not bad for what it is.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
A: The pour is a slightly hazed orange color with a very short lived off-white head.
S: Smells completely fake. Orange candy and cough drops. A lot of menthol and mint, and a strange warmth.
T: Tastes almost exactly like orange mints as well. There’s quite a bit of menthol flavor to this as well, which is not something that’s necessarily bad, but not what I want in beer.
M: The body is light with a moderate level of carbonation.
D: This is hard to score. The flavors aren’t necessarily awful, but they don’t really belong in beer, and they’re not something that you can drink a lot of.
