Thanks to Kimmy. Artificial nose- like apricot hair shampoo. Nice golden copper color iwth a small layer of a head. soapy peach and melon taste. It caught me off guard as I havenít read the lable before.

Bottle. Poured a real gold colour with delicious peach and melon aroma. This is not a session beer.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2007
Interesting English ale with a powerful peachy nose. Quite pleasant but actually the aroma isnít very beer-like. Sweet but not cloying. Light body and hoppiness.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - MAY 28, 2007
Appearance: Amber color and little head. Aroma: Intense in peaches but very artificial. Reminiscence of plums, apricot and sweet orange. Flavor: begin mainly to peaches, but like aroma is artificial. The sweetness in the beginning progress to medium hopís bitter. Palate: Light body and watery texture. Exotic beer but mediocre. (sorry for my english)

downender (7795) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2007
Golden coloured with a lacy white head. Aroma was of fruits like peaches, apricots and melon. The flavour was of peach and not much else, although this wasnít overpowering like the ginger in Blandford Fly. Alright as a summer drink.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2007
Itís a golden beer with a nice head. The peach is very dominating in both aroma and flavour. towards the end I also find notes of flower and melon and a very light bitterness. Peach is the last impression.

boltonmark (9) - Uppingham, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2007 does not count
The overwhelming flavour of peach was a bit too much for me. Slightly biiter but a malty taste comes through eventually.

pivnizub (10029) - Bochum, PorķřŪ, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2007
Bottle: Deep golden coloured, smaller foamy head; strong fruity nose - peaches and maracuja - with a very small hoppiness; bitter-sweet flavour; melons in the fruity, sweetish-bitter finish. A very unusual Ale, but refreshing...........

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2007 Ruby cloloured . very hoppy nose, a full bitter hop, with lots of floral notes in the flavour. Tk 2 Bottle at home ... amber coloured ... floral hop peachy nose ... fruity front lots of bitterness ... fruity dry bitter linger. I used to really like this but would find it hard going 3.5->3.1
