16 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 6/16/2017. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden amber/light orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of juicy/lightly tart blood oranges, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, passionfruit, mango, melon, lemon/orange zest, light pepper/pine, cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of blood oranges/zest, citrus/fruity/earthy hops, and moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big juicy/lightly tart blood oranges, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, passionfruit, mango, melon, lemon/orange zest, light pepper/pine, cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine/citrus peel/grassy/spicy bitterness and blood orange tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of juicy/tart blood oranges, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, passionfruit, mango, melon, lemon/orange zest, light pepper/pine, cracker, lightly toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of blood oranges/zest, citrus/fruity/earthy hops, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/tartness balance; and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitter/tartness. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and lightly sticky/tangy/acidic balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.5%. Overall this is a very good fruited Czech pilsner style. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of blood oranges/zest, citrus/fruity/earthy hops, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink, with the mildly tart/bitter/drying finish. Hits the Czech pilsner base style really well; with the addition of some Citrus/fruity American hops along with the blood orange/zest. A very enjoyable and unique offering. zoucrew102 (2245) - - DEC 24, 2017
Pint can. Tart blood orange aroma with notes of grainy malt and citrus. Pours orange-amber colored with one finger of off white head that has excellent retention, but no lacing. Starts with tart blood orange flavors as well as a bit of grainy malt. Finishes smooth, crisp and refreshing with more tart citrus and blood orange flavors and acidity. Refreshing beer, but a bit one demensional. GoufCustom (2257) - HONG KONG - DEC 20, 2017

473 ml (16 oz) can bought at YATA in YoHo Mall, Yuen Long.
Looks: Translucent orange honey colour with a thin cloud of misty yeast particles; Three finger head with crumpety off-white foam which lasts for 3 minutes; Very good sticky lacing with quite fizzy carbonation.
Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet malt, with strong oranges, pineapples, honey, passion fruits, cinnamon, floral, icing sugar, spices, earth, dry biscuits, yeast, lemon and fresh grass.
Taste: Medium sweet malt, with grapefruit, blood orange, floral, molasses, strong cinnamon, spices, fair resins, earth, dry biscuits, yeast, lime, mid to strong bitter grassy hops.
Body: Medium body. Slick and slightly oozy palate.
Mouth Feel: Very good maltyness - quite yummy, more Golden Ale than Lager - in runny but slick background. Strong citrusy grapefruit hops and fruity blood orange dominate. Full of cinnamons and earth spices and ooze, flowery with medium sweetness. Dry biscuity with lime to round. I like it!
Hoppiness: Strong oranges, pineapples, passion fruits, cinnamon, floral, spices, earth, lemon and fresh grass in nose. Grapefruit, floral, strong cinnamon, spices, resins, earth, lime and grassy in taste; Bitterness is quite strong for a lasting, mid to high astringent sweet-bitter spicy malty finish.
After taste: Quite dry. Citrusy oozy and quite bitter to mouth.
Comments: This one has that usual runny feel of a fruit beer, but the maltyness is strong enough to be as tasteful as the citrusy hops and fruity blood oranges to equally share the taste profiles. Massive dose of Saaz also play a large parts to its spicyness. Very hoppy, fruity and malty. A labour of love!
Off white thin head left a smattering on a hazy, slowly effervescent, dark orange coloured body.
Big aroma of orange & yeast.
Medium to thin bodied, finely carbonated & clean on the finish. The body is really lacking - even for a lager.
Bitter/Sweet orange overrides all tastes in this. There's faint lager tastes on the back but that's about it. Hopper8 (268) - Holland, Michigan, USA - NOV 4, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2017 It's a really nice Lager. It's crisp and tart with the blood orange, the aroma is wonderful. It's just a beer I could happily kick back with after a nice sunny day.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2017 Pours deep golden to orange, hazy, medium soapy head, some lacing. Aroma is strong at first, but it fades quickly, citrus hops and lager malts. Taste not as fruity as expected, but well balanced with a typical lager malty side and tasty hops. Orange is there but it could have been slightly stronger. Light and crisp, easy to drink, tasty light bitter lager. slowrunner77 (13206) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 6, 2017
Dark orange almost amber in color. Unique, but the sweet n tart fruit is so strong as to drown out any pilsner crispness this beer may have had. Decent fruit beer. gunnfryd (15503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 22, 2017

La cerveza en si, fuera de que el sabor no es nada del otro mundo, esta muy licuada poisoneddwarf (2690) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - AUG 14, 2017
16 oz can from Mount Royal in MN. Aroma is orange, orange peel, grain, chalky candy, a bit herbal. Pours clear deep golden with a decent bone-white head with good retention. Taste is lightly sweet, a hint of tartness from the fruit, and fairly bitter for a lager. The oranges aren’t in your face and are pretty subtle. Reminds me of certain blood orange pale ales and IPAs, but a bit different by using a hoppy pilsner base instead. Interesting and tasty.
