PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Tap at ACBF 2009: Hazy golden with a white film of head. Fruit snack aroma with nondescript graininess. Light feel- with a flavor reminiscent of fruit snacks upfront followed by a clean grain character. Mildly hopped. Not bad- itíd be better without the fruit addition and have the simple clean base beer.

On draft at the brewpub. The beer poured a deep, hazy golden orange with a thin, white head. Pints were served with a wedge of orange on the glass (luckily not the sampler, though...). The aroma was light with some citrus. The flavor follows the aroma - light and a little watery. There is a touch of malts and a touch of oranges by mid-palate. The finish is dry and crisp and light. The mouthfeel is light in body and crisp. Overall, a drinkable but very plain ale.

golden color with light carbonation. next to no head slight lacing. very little sticking. Malt and orange smell. Nothing to crazy here. Crisp, slight orange flavor, malty. Seems to be medium body until you swallow, thenís itís very very light. Pretty drinkable, very refreshing and almost cleansing.

Of the four beers I tasted this visit, this was the winner. Light grainy/citrus flavor. Pleasant and worth a try.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 28, 2006
On tap @ Watch City. Pours hazy yellow orange with white head. Aroma is fruity orange and lemon. Taste is sweet orange with light hops. Fairly dry and bready. Not bad at all. Great for a hot day.

fbennett (293) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 30, 2006
Pours a bright and vibrant orange leaving a thick white lace with a clear clean bubbly body. The aroma is orange, lemon, and grass. The taste starts crisp, dry, and clean, it has a tart sourdough tanginess that really prepares the palate for the citrusy acidic nature of this brew. The balancing act in this beer is a little one sided toward tartness but some honey sweetness brings it up a bit. This is a crisp refreshing beer that is enjoyable to the last drop.

On draught at the brewpub, 6/29/2005. Deep, lightly hazy orange creamsicle colored beer, with some bright yellow-golds. Small, but moderately well-retained bubbly white head, with little to no lacing. Aroma has tangerine juice, light caramel covered oranges and some pale malty sugary notes. Flavor is quite sweet up front with a big dose of orange juice. Kind of like ale brewed with orange juice, as itís not citric hops. Rather strange, with the sugary malt and citrus. A bit papery on the end, with a zesty carbonation and a caramel and oranges flavor lingering. Lightly watery, though not thin. It has that strange orange creamsicle flavor that the Anderson Valley Summer solstice has, and I donít like that. It tastes like orange-flavored candy corns have been dissolved in the beer.

Light golden in color with a slight haze and a small white head. Mild citrus and spicy hop aroma and flavor.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 28, 2003
Pours a medium golden, smallish white head that lasts, lacing a bit. Aroma is light, some orange and honey come out, as does a little hoppiness. Flavor is sweet, orange, honey, some lemon, and finishes with some hops. Medium bodied, a bit dry, flavors are all crisp and clean. A good summer time beer, whether you are sitting on the beach, or mowing the lawn.
