This beer was one of my first obscure microbrews. You can certainly taste the honey and the orange flavor. I don’t know if it was slightly watery or not, but it certainly didn’t have a heavy taste to it. I feel like I could have drank the whole six pack and not feel any different even though it was 5.5 ABV. I’d recommend it, but I’m not going to go out of my way to get it.

From Oct 2007 I got this one in a trade with Wasatch. Thanks John! This pours from 12oz bottle(label says brewed by Thomas Creek Brewery) a nice clear "Pilsner" straw gold with a large head of foam that just won't quit. The smell has a chemical smell to it along with some faint notes of orange. The taste is a big mix of honey and orange that's slightly pungent...that's the good part. The honey, I think, is over done and drags the taste down with its earthy, semi sweet, not so tasty flavour. I think they need go a different route because this doesn't work too well. Hell of a retentive head of foam though!

Clean and refreshing taste. No bitter aftertaste. Refreshing overall. Not to sweet but just enough flavor to enjoy the combination. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Has a nice first taste when it hits your palate and leaves with a bit of honey and orange blossom. Very nice on a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 Tried this one again (from a can) on a recent trip to Orlando. Interesting orange color - I guess it lives up to its name in that sense. It is refreshing if slightly boring - an easier drinker for hot Florida days.

DOC: 5/4/2017

2015 BJCP Category: 31B Alternative Sugar Beer (base style: 2B International Amber Lager)

AROMA: Sweet nose with a honey-like presence along with clean grainy malt. Slight floral component (unlikely from hops). 8/12

APPEARANCE: Slightly hazy shade of orange proper. Large white soapy suds dissipates quickly and completely. 2/3

FLAVOR: Contrary to the marketing, the palette is indeed sweet with a honey taste. Base malt is a bit generic; mostly amber/pale with faint caramel flavor. No specialty malt character; nor hop presence. Some brief residual sweetness in the aftertaste, otherwise clean. 12/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body with medium-low carbonation. Slightly crisp, but feels flat and undercarbonated for the style. Not refreshing, but easy to drink. Overweight at 5.5%. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Most definitely not a pilsner, just a honey-flavored lager (which makes it interesting, but not good per se). 5/10

TOTAL SCORE: 30/50

Can brought back to room I believe the final new brewery tick available at this resort making it far more successful visit in ratebeer terms than I could have dreamed. Nose is honey and floral. Tastes of honey, cereal, floral, light dried grass. Decent enough.
