They were found in a lawn. I see no trace of lilac coloration, even in the gills, however I think that is quite possible (especially in some areas like here in CT).
Odor: I don’t think I really noticed the frozen orange juice scent w/these, though I’ve noticed it in other years.
Taste: Tried a small piece microwaved: I think a very faint bitterness, but otherwise it was pretty sweet w/good texture (a bit firm). I hope I can eat regular amounts!

BTW, I’ve read they can be allergenic, especially when not cooked. I wonder how true or not this statement is…. Any examples of the “allergenic” symptoms described somewhere anyone would like to point out?

If I were in CA, the consensus may be Clitocybe brunneocephala , yet here we’d call it a brown L. nuda.
