look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

A - The color of the beer isn't a huge shocker. Orange tinted straw colored. Poured a very small head that was gone in absolutely no time. All that is left are some bubbles rising to the top. This beer kind of looks like a watered down orange juice.

S - Very strong orange peel and almost ginger-like scent coming from the beer mixed with some bitter hops. I don't find the scent to be rather pleasant even though I really enjoy oranges.

T - Very surprising taste, sort of. Obviously it's got a strong base of orange. Very full orange taste that practically dominates the beer. Almost tastes how it looks, like orange juice. There's also an adjunct grain taste present, which I don't dislike paired with this beer. It actually flows together nicely. The finish is full of sweet floral hops.

M - Very light bodied, comparable to something like Coors Light. Despite the amount of bubbles at the beginning it has a very low carbonated taste.

D - I have a hard time believing this is a "winter" beer. I totally see this is a summer beer because it's highly refreshing, and due to it being slightly watery and only a 5.2% ABV it's very drinkable.

Buffalo Bill’s Orange Blossom Cream Ale has an extremely thick, creamy, off-white head, with brown specs noticeable at the top, a hazy, highly fizzy, yellow-gold appearance, with numerous suspended brown chunks, and a heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of particularly sharp orange with a background of white bread. Taste is of oranges, orange peel, some honey, citric acid, and white bread, with a shade of tap water. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Buffalo Bill’s Orange Blossom Cream Ale finishes dry, juicy, sweet, and refreshing. For a fruit beer, this is a winner.

by far my favorite beer ever....perhaps im a bit biased since im from NorCal!?

Its great for summer. but dont expect an Orange Two Tone popcicle taste....if you want that try Dudes Blood Orange from Torrance, CA!

this one is definitely more floral!
