I find it to be a nice change of pace - like an alcohol popsicle - I like it frigid cold like a popsicle but wife likes it at room temp so that’s nice - it plays.

Pours the color of apple juice with strong aromas of marmalade. Immediate hit of oranges on the tongue - too much. Somewhat dry finish.

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.

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.

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.

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JAN 1, 2015
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.

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 (686) - 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 (12037) - 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.

stevoj (5031) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Aroma right up front is citrus /oranges. Disappointed that is does not have a substantial cream ale body or mouth feel. Light airy head, oranges dominate aroma and taste. A good summer beer, easy to drink and refreshing, but lacks most of the true cream ale characteristics.
