A - Poured from a bottle into a Pilsner glass, lots of head that disappates quickly, leaving lacing all over the glass. It's very active with carbonation and is very light and carbonated. Nothing too special here.

S - Smells like oranges. Wonderful orange aroma with some hints of cereal, a little sugar, some citrus acidity, and this wonderful flowery summer aroma. Smells very refreshing. A perfect summer beer.

T - The orange I smelled and the orange I actually taste are two different things. I do taste some orange, but it's overpowered by a little too much citrus acidity and hoppy bite. That being said, it tastes wonderful otherwise. A nice crisp blond ale.

M - Very light and effervescent feel in my mouth, almost like a soda. Very light and goes down even lighter. Was hoping for a little more of a creaminess or a thickness, but for what it is, not bad.

O - By no means a bad beer, I just wish it had more orange. Kind of reminiscent of Shock Top or Blue Moon, but without the wheat heaviness I despise. Imagine either of those with no wheat and a little less orange, and you'd have High Dive. It has just the right amount of this wonderfully sharp hoppy citrus bite and some light carbonation. The light orange notes also are in its favor in this regard, as too much orange would make it taste like one of those Hard Lemonade things. Not the best orange beer I've ever had, but an absolutely awesome session beer for a hot summer day.

Stegmaier has barely made any improvements. Bland and boring.

a very refreshing summer brew with the orange in there, works for out of the bottle refreshment in warmer weather. hazy pale in color, but holding a decent white head, and smelling more like lager beer than anything else, although the orange peel is unmistakable. some the about the water with the beers from these guys. it has a different chemistry or ph or something, its not off at all, but is there in the finish of everything they make. i find it pleasantly mineral based, slightly phosphoric, but clean and not distracting or filling or leaving any weird residue on the palate. citrus fruit throughout this beer, orangey and juicy and fresh and ripe. the beer itself is real light, clean and drinkable. its summer beer for sure, but doesnt really take the style anywhere it hasn't been a few hundred times already. fully active carbonation and a crisp finish. down easy right from the bottle, i could have upwards of ten of these under the right conditions. not as good as their winter, but still well tasty.
