It may be called "crafty" by some but I think it is getting a lot of people to open their eyes to more than the standard BMC offerings. Its also widely distributed so its also the best available choice in many establishments. Good aroma with some malt and coriander upfront. Hazy appearance as expected with decent head that dissipates relatively quickly. Good light to medium body with a pleasant finish.

ironprog (74) - Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2017
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy, golden orange with a high, tight, white head that lasts forever. Aromas of orange peel, spice, and dough. Taste is smooth and sweet with flavors of orange and spices. Light-bodied with a slick texture. Carbonation is average and the finish is sweet and long. Overall a nice beer, perfect for a hot summer day while lounging by the pool.

Itstasty (79) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2017 Cask @ The Malt House, Howden. Cloudy orange, sweet citrus nose. In the mouth its like a bland pale ale with a dash of orange syrup. Not repulsive but not for me.

craig30 (7) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2017 does not count
in a bottle this is a great drink, i think a pint is too much and kills the taste and becomes sickly

jg31 (10) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2017
Surprisingly great beer albeit from a macro brewer, floral and light with a sweet finish, great summer beer for those who enjoy a lighter less hoppy beer

Pours hazy golden with floating yeast and medium white head. Aroma is fruity, orange, some citrus, sweetness, yeast, flour, some old onions. Taste is fruity, yeast, coriander, some citrus, light bitter notes, sweetness, sweet berries, a bit watery. Drinkable beer but yeast acts somehow strange.

beer_head (24) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2017 Pump, Hotel Wroxham Golden orange appearance, cloudy with slight frothy head. Served with slice of orange and no great surprise it has a strong citrus orange aroma. Taste is sweet and orange juice. Very smooth finish and very refreshing. Virtually tastes like alcoholic orange juice with a twist. Far too easy to drink, extremely moorish. This American import should catch on with the younger generation.
