Brewed with real orange peels for a clean and crisp taste that highlights natural citrus flavors.

25 oz can. Pours a clear golden color. Little to no head with no lacing. Nose is orange and corn. Taste is artificial orange, corn and citrus. Might not be too bad on a hot summer afternoon.

12 oz bottle

Pours clear golden, if there was a head there I missed it. No retention at all.

Aroma of faint orange creamsicle.

Flavor is sweet artificial orange, some more natural citrus underneath, very bland corn malts, and maybe a hint of bitterness that is decidedly NOT hop related.

Body is slightly more than water, tingling carbonation on the tongue.

I was bracing for a dumpster fire but this isn't the worst beer I have had by a long shot. It's also not good though. But drinkable. The pour is really disappointing, aroma completely inoffensive by virtue of being basically nothing, and the body is surprisingly fine aside from feeling very thin. Everything about this beer hinges on the taste and I bet this is somebody's cup of tea, er, beer. It's not mine. The orange flavor is promising but too artificial. There may be real orange in this but they punched it up with some kind of additive and it's candy like. There's really nothing else going on in the flavor to balance it. It needs to be really cold and crisp to be palatable, it just gets worse as it warms. But ice cold out of the fridge you can get through it. Sincerely doubt I will ever have this again but if it works for you more power to you.

I'm drinking Troegenator from a keg, which is a bit lacking in flavor, but adding a little Bud Light Orange makes it pretty good, ...a lot more interesting. As a mixer is the only possible way to consume Bud Light Orange. It's undrinkable from the bottle.

If you love Orange, then you'll love this. Best thing to hit the shelves in the summer since the PS5/XBOX X. Best tasting in glass, is my recommendation. Sip not chug, take in the aroma and flavor. This is not a race drink, its a pinky up let me shout out my boys/girls drink .

Soft Orange taste, not excessive to deter the fact that it is a beer. The look is best in glass, along with its orange glow color which says, hey I'm a citrus fruit ....BEER!, It smell is light, with a hint of orange peels, overall for the summer this is the beer to enjoy! Make sure you get this in Glass, its so much better. If there is no bottles then my recommendation is to have a glass ready to empty your can.

Short head, completely gone in an instant, zero lacing. Orange color is not too extreme or off-putting. Sweet smell, like an orange soda but also reminiscent of a cleaner. Quite bland taste actually, orange flavor is pretty light. Some malt that quickly mellows out into a weird kind of papery flavor. Low carbonation is nice, finish is very short and watery. Would rather not drink.

Had a rough day at work and the only brew in my fridge was leftover Bud Light Orange my wife forced me to buy for her while on vacation. Pours a nice tropical neon Orange color with the scent of cheap (fake) dollar store Orange juice. Well carbonated and very sweet fake Orange taste . Maybe the worst "beer" I have had in many years. I would be forced into sobriety if this were the only beer left in the world...luckily it isn't.

I am on a huge weight loss journey.
So to drink bud orange is very refreshing in 86 degrees.
