Episode 164 – Orange Blossom Cream Ale

From Buffalo Bill’s Brewery in Hayward CA this “fruit beer” is a light beer infused with orange blossoms orange peel and honey. We haven’t had too much luck with fruit beers on Two Guys on Beer and unfortunately this isn’t an exception. The beer base is a super-light – and super-thin – lager or pale ale that provides almost no flavor. The mix of orange honey and carbonation lends this beer a bit of an orange-soda flavor. It’s not the worst beer in the world and we can definitely see where some people would love this beer – especially during the summer months where this may bring up thoughts of a shandy of sorts… but as for us we’re left wanting more.
