look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

from the can - Orion Southern Star is a liqueur with a refreshing light taste, delicately flavored with hops. sorry beer advocate, i'm adding a liqueur.

this is a solid 2, not impressed for appearance and smell. standard rice adjunct near beer. boring pale yellow with no head? check. boring tap water smell? check. it gets a couple points for having a non-stomach-turning taste. in fact, the taste is almost on par with the better japanese beer sodas like super blue.

the can ironically has 3 stars as part of the label. orion southern star is closer to a 2, not impressed.

Appearance: Very pale yellow beer with a fizzy, white head.

Smell: Light apple with a soda like quality.

Taste: Very weak beer flavor. The beer seems to recreate the taste of club soda wit a bit of beer mixed in.

Mouthfeel: Light body, minimal carbonation that differs from other examples of the style. Smooth finish.

Drinkablity: Not a bad example of the style. Not something I would walk too far for though.
