2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Served from bottle into a Sweetwater snifter. Poured a golden yellow with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount instantly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, orange, and wheat. The flavor was of sweet malt, cream, orange, and wheat. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was an average brew. Nothing really stood out on this one at all for me from other brews of the same style. There are so many good brews in this style, it would be hard to do so, but this one felt like it didn't even make an effort. Yes, the orange was there. Yes, the cream was there. But that's it? I guess you can't win them all. Glad I got the chance to tick it, but doubt I would go out of my way to do so again.

DATE: July 20, 2017... OCCASION: orange cream ale showdown, after sampling Czig Meister’s own take... GLASSWARE: Howard’s Pub pint... pours a pale gold body with active, steady bubbles that build a snow-white creaminess that drifts... sharp, pitched orange citrus, almost to an astringent quality... tough to detect other scents, besides ginger, honey, and apple... fizzy, mellow, sippable, but with a lingering malt effect... cream soda buzz combines with a zesty orange peel to dominate the profile... slightly sour, with strong orange and clementine, this is some dish water with a vibrant finish.... this just doesn’t present as a beer, so I feel it difficult to rate this much higher than the parts themselves... benpickens (527) - Camarillo, California, USA - JUN 18, 2017
Pours the color of apple juice with strong aromas of marmalade. Immediate hit of oranges on the tongue - too much. Somewhat dry finish. tightslice (1380) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Bottle from World Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is Bath & Body Works soap, Orange Blossoms, scented candles, some honey. Taste is vanilla, floral, vanilla floral lotion. To be completely fair, I knew I would hate this beer from the get-go (not a fan of Orange Blossoms or Cream Ales) but this was worse than I expected. Hopefully better suited for freshening the scent of my kitchen sink drain. RSRIZZO (2009) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 17, 2016
12oz bottle poured into a Flute at 42°. Color is a light hazy gold with light carbonation and a thin head. Aroma is great smells like a orange cream sickles. It has a light body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor is orange with a mild sweetness then just a hint of hop spice and just enough bitterness to counter the sweet. After taste is dry with flavors of the aroma hanging on. Overall it’s a very tasty brew, I think they really hit what they were going for. willisread (3464) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 15, 2015
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Sickeningly sweet orange aroma that reeks of medicine and over the top florals. Thin and watery mouthfeel. Light to medium body. Not really very creamy. Not a very well-balanced beer.

Interesting tidbit to start, the bottle was threaded but the cap was not...interesting. Here’s the rest.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance looked fine. Hazy burnt orange color with a big foamy white and bubbly head. Once it dissipated, there’s no lacing.
The smell had the orange and some off-soapy / wants-to-be cream-colored aroma.
The taste was sweet through the orange. Soapiness becomes stronger and makes the beer harder to put down. Soapy aftertaste with no finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a good sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed appropriately styled and it didn’t seem bad to me.
Overall, the palate was the best thing about it but normally I don’t go after beers just how they feel on the palate, so I will most likely not have this again. beertholomeus (1813) - California, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Pours yellow with very small white head that dissolved instantly. Fruit, floral and grain aroma. Cream, orange, floral, honey and diacetyl flavors. Light body and moderate carbonation. Floral finish. kidobutai (696) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Short lived bubbly head, sadly no lacing. Aroma is orange all right, but the lack of creaminess (as expected with no lacing) made this a disappointment. Medicinal taste, more like syrup than creamsickle. slowrunner77 (12455) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 17, 2014
"i like the honey ok, otherwise this is just another thin, boring beer. heavy on the flavoring, low on the complexity. not exciting at all, but not much was expected." Danyel (1606) - Colorado, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours light orange with white head. Aroma smells like orange cough syrup, sweet, very sweet oranges. Taste is crisp, very orange, bitter backbone, really really gross.
