Orange Blossom Ale. Inspired by the rich fragnance of blooming orange groves, this copper colored ale combines the flavor and aroma of real orange tree flowers with a well balanced, full flavored ale to produce a real treat for the senses. Munich and light Caramel malts produce a smooth, creamy malt complexity, and American hops give the beer a bright, refreshing bitterness and dry finish. The orange blossom aroma blends superbly with the other beer flavors, providing a unique dimension that is the perfect complement to tangy, herbal or spicy foods, soft cheeses or pastries.

can courtesy of jcwattsrugger. pours orange with thin white head. Aroma had plenty of orange blossom, floral and honey sweetness. Taste sweet orange more on the floral side with light hoppy notes, overly sweet and honeyish. Overall palate ends as a soapy orange palate. Not horrible.

Can inflicted on us by Ethan. Thanks? Sweet mercy, what a rank smell! This is like something rotting in your unused garbage disposal. I guess I can find some silk from this sows ass by saying that the appearance is okay. But seriously, this beer should be renamed Reno Runoff.

Ugh. This is pretty horrible. Bathroom stall, urinal cake, and pootz stanky socks highlight this gem. I hope to God this was infected for it is one of the worst beverages I have had in some time,

Thanks to jcwattsrugger for this. Poured a bright golden orange with a two finger creamy yellow head. Nose is very sweet, orangey, lots of honey to it. Very one dimensional and straight forward aroma. Flavor is no good, wild off flavor, too sweet and something funky, crisp, then almost watery.

Pours orange, with a white head. Aroma is odd..oranges and somewhat vegetal. Flavor is oranges, but not in a good way. This just isnt good.

Orange pour with an off white head and lace. Malt is all I got on the nose. A hint of abv., lite malt, light corn and a bit of bitter. A thin and watery palate. Drinkable not uch body or alot of flavor.

Canned. Pours a slightly hazy orange and brown colour with a thin head. Big aroma of oranges and maybe some biscuit as well. The flavour does not seem artificial to me but rather there is too much of it. The orange overpowers everything else except a slightly flat, bitter finish.

Unique aroma, very like a blooming orange grove. medium malt body and color, but refreshing. Slightly bitter. Surprising and one of a kind beer.

The aroma and appearance skew this rating. Aroma has quite a bit of orange zest. The head tastes awful on this. The flavor is also not so good. A lot of orange in a carbonated way. Couldn’t drink a half can.

A soft artificial orange aroma atop some very drinkable,malty light ale. Had a little bit of crusty bread going on, with a layer of orange marmalade. I think it would be better served cold, as it would make it more refreshing.
