3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark amber colour and a weak white head. A strong and distintive fruity nose of peaches and melon, and roses. The taste is again of the fruitiness of the aroma, the peachy floral fruitiness is apparent, but there is an underlying bitterness. The finish is smooth and somewhat sweet on the mouth. (Bottle).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Clear dark amber colour but no head. Aroma is overwhemingly peach. The label says ’melon’ too, which I agree with having read it, but wouldn’t have come to my mind immediately. In the mouth, it isn’t quite as peachy as it smells, however. Flavour is sweet and refreshing, and the body is light and gently fizzes on the tounge, but not especially carbonated. This would be a great beer on a warm summer’s afternoon but it’s February so I followed Bansidhe’s comment and had it after a curry, which went down very well.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml Bottle from Tesco. This seems to be one of those beers that sharply divides opinion reading through some of the other reviews. I am on the positive side, but I accept that the incredible peachy aroma can be a little bit too much for some, I think that its great, the peach carried on through into the beer and this was the only downside in that the taste whilst I enjoyed it never quite lived up to that magnificent aroma. Looking forward to trying this on cask at some point. My girlfriend really likes this and like someone else had mentioned more beers that are gonna’ appeal to the fairer sex can only be a good thing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A Mes rate:
50cl bottle from Tesco. Just as the description on the bottle says, lots of peach and melon. A little too flowery flavour wise for me. Rather watery too. Reasonable nutty peach tasting beer but the finish is pretty awful and acrid.

Dark golden with small white head. The aroma has peach and note of bitterness. The taste is artificial peach ans a bitter aftertaste.

Enjoyed the unusual taste of this one, the peach aroma does not detract from the beer at all, in fact it’s like stepping back to a time when early beers had many local ingrediants. different yes, tasty yes, again? . . . yes The Friday beer show give it 7/10 for effort. vobes.com

First time I had this was with a curry in Cornwall last summer. First opened the bottle and I was like ’whoah’. Peachy aroma and subtle carbonation. I’m not usually a fan of fancy flavoured beer but this went down well, espcially with the spicy food. I’d say this would be a good introduction for someone new to ale.

Poured from the bottle, amber in colour with no head. A very strong aroma os melon and peach. A sweet flavour of melon and peach again. A very different drop!

This is an interesting little brew: grand, flowery notes of peach and honey melon combined with that trademark freshness of Badger ales. Great as an apperitif and ladies seem to take to it as well -- never a bad thing and the very reason I just picked up another bottle at the store.
