jordinc (105) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Poured light golden with a quickly receding white head and light lacing. Not much by way of aroma. Pretty heavily carbonated, dry on the palate. Orange blossom notes do come through and the result is quite refreshing. There is a hint of grainy liquor that lingers on the tongue. An interesting take on the style, maybe a little bland if drinking more than one.

A nice Pilsner with a citrus brightness and malt foamy Carmel. Sweetness obvious. A very nice beer for a Pilsner. Not a German pilz more a fruity American Pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Clear light amber body with a short, off-white head. Aroma of honey, caramel, raw grain, straw. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Thin to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Honey taste that’s sweet from start to finish. But then there’s grain and corn in the background.

jgb9348 (5432) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Golden coloured body with a hint of an orange highlight and a dense three centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of honey, earth, malt, cardboard and a bit of unfinished yeast. Light-bodied; Malt noticeable up front with some light cardboard and some mellow metallic and floral notes, but some more aggresive honey and sweetness at the end. Aftertaste shows some of the malt and metal with some yeast coming through, but the honey is by far the most dominant, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Overall, a light and sweet beer that shows well for the style and for the reason to drink it (hot outside and a you want a light beer). I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Knightly Spirits (Orange Blossom Trail) in Orlando, Florida yesterday on 01-October-2015 for US$1,99 sampled in my hotel room (WDW Swan) on 01-October-2015 just after arriving!

Can, thanks cards04. Golden amber pour with a thin white head. Aroma is a little malty with floral and subtle honey notes. Flavour is much the same, plus a touch of citrus. Too sweet to be really enjoyable.

northropfrye (3091) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 1, 2015
Thanks cards04. Crystal orange body, fizzy white head, not much retention or lacing. Sweet candy orange aroma. Taste is also quite sweet, has a sugary taste like Welch’s Grape Juice, a bit of breadiness, syrup, all kind of watery though. Smooth palate, not much pep.
