djoeye (1207) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - MAR 16, 2014
Aroma; peaches, apricot candy, lots of that. Head as off white peach tart cream, thin layer, clear amber body, some laceworks inside mug. Taste; peach juice drowned hops, apricot notes all over, hops are trying to come back in transition to the aftertaste. To palate a bit watery. Fruity and nice carbonated. Finishes in icy peach, grains, grass, hops. Overall a strange drink, fruit beer? But easy to drink. 0,5L clear bottle 4.5% b@supermarket in Finland, tasted@home Norway.

Mr_Pink_152 (506) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2014
500ml bottle from supermarket. Clear golden colour with very limitless head. Peach dominates the flavour, but not overpowering. On the whole this beer was ok

andriesradu (452) - ROMANIA - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle @ Beer zone, Iasi. Pours clear orange/amber with a small and fast diminishing head. Moderate to heavy peach, fruity aroma, perfumed. Flavor is moderate sweet, light bitter, fruity, again peach which dominates. For me it was more a Peach juice, very similar to Nestea peach

TBone (12329) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Clear amber color, small white head. Slightly skunky first, then odd sweet exotic fruity, peachy aroma - like in some shandy. Light-bodied. Less peachy flavor, but it is there. Light bitterness in finish. Malt profile is a bit cardboardish. Not the most common UK golden ale.

Rob_D_UK (667) - Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2013
Pours amber with a white head. Intense floral aroma, taste is of sweet peaches but it was balanced, not too sweet.

Overly peach flavour. Tastes like an alco-pop version of a bitter with peach flavour tasting like added from concentrate. Not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500 ml bottle
This is nothing more than a county tick unless you happen to really like mediocre beer. Fruity and sweet it drinks more like an alcopop than even an average golden ale. Skip it and save your money for better options.

Aroma / Appearance - Peachy in color, the orange base glows with a stingy white head that does not grow very tall or look very pleasing. Peach jolly ranchers are sweet and cloying like a glass full of sugar water. There isnít much depth or balance to speak of.

Flavor / Palate - Light peachy notes tickle the taste buds before the whole thing fades away on the back of the tongue. Mild malts act as if more is coming but nothing ever does. Though it is sessionable the profile creates a bland and boring beer that is just what you would expect from a grocery store chain.
