Orange Blossom Amber is a classic American Lager style of beer, only made with fresh orange peels. This "festival favorite" was invented late night while Rick Lovett was brewing a test batch of beer and had eaten several oranges. He threw the peels into the boil.

Bottle at home. Pours hazy orange with a medium, frothy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is orange soda and corny Pils malt. Flavor is corny Pils malt, orange peel, lightly bitter and a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

12oz bottle shared with my wife on 25th May 2016, straight after this breweries Raspberry Ale: preferred this, but only just. Dull orange in colour with a wisp and collar on top. Oranges rule the nose and flavour (no surprises there then) and it is quite refreshing in the afternoon Californian sunshine. On the sweet side, but just about drinkable when thirsty.

Bottle. Yellow orange pour, with a white head. Smells and tastes like orange soda, sweet, and artificial orange. Not much else going on here, I would not drink this.

"ok on a 100 degree day, no more, no less. a nice orange peel aroma gives way to less pleasing smells as it warms, no complexity whatsoever, and not very good if not ice cold. this orange "amber" is orange atop a straw beer, so i’m not sure where the amber part comes in..."

FROTHINGSLOSH (8308) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange color with a medium sized foamy orange-white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was Tang. The flavor was Tangy. Medium length finish. Light body. Pretty awful.

Like a dry mimosa more than a beer. Floral citrus nose followed by a ripe orange peel sweetness.

Adding orange peel to an American lager can’t hurt but I’m not sure it really helps either.

Ibrew2or3 (8913) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 7, 2012
12oz bottle pours an innocent clear copper with thin white head. The aroma pulses with Sunkist Orange soda notes along with a thin ring of powdered sugar. The taste punishes the wary with sugary Sunkist Orange soda like notes that are fully enhanced by the above average level of carbonation. I succumbed and poured most of it down the drain. This is likely a good beer for people who are convinced they hate beer due to its beer-y flavors.

djd07 (16317) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a frothy white head. The aroma is fruit and cereal. Thin mouthfeel with a sour orange and tart. Not much going on with this one.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Thanks to swalden28 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a slightly hazy orange color with a white head. The aroma smells like Sunkiss soda with some grain mixed in. The flavor is just as bad, with a lot of sweet orange and biscuit malt notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
