Pours a hazy light orange color with a 1 inch white head that fades to a small cap. Very decent ring lacing on the drink down. Smells of watered down orange soda. Tastes of watered down diet orange soda mixed with hand soap. Somewhat flat and watery in the mouth. This is beyond awful. The only thing decent about it is its appearance.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Look - orange coppery color with slight head retention

Smell - orange peel rind and light hops

Taste - tastes just like carbonated orange juice with a hoppy light finish. Great mouth feel going down with a strong orange rind finish

This beer is by far one of the best beers I have ever tasted. They serve this beer in a BELL jam jar along with a jumbo slice of orange. This beer hits my top five list because of its originality and limited availability.

On-tap at Big Bear Mountain Brewery

A: The pour is a hazed light orange/amber color with no head to speak of.

S: This beer stings the nostrils, and not in a good way. Paint thinner, orange rinds, and Vick's Vapor Rub work well to clear a sinus problem but aren't really what I look for in a beer.

T: This is what a mixture of orange peel infused cologne and Vick's Vapor Rub would taste like. Simply dreadful and it burns a little bit.

M: The body is thin with almost no carbonation and an intense heat as though taking a drink of liquor.

D: Truly wretched. This might be good for a head cold, but it's nothing I would ever wish to drink again.
