Bottle courtesy of Tesco :-). This one of my favourite summer beers. The label says its refreshingly peachy and they are not wrong! Some might consider it overpowering, but for me it works well with the bitterness of the hops. Everyone who I have served it to really enjoyed it. Don't over chill it or you won't enjoy the full flavours of this excellent and very much underrated beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lubiere (9877) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
A lightly hazed golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet peaches, peach pulp, light mineral notes, OK. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with peach tartness, lingering, a bit light, OK. Bottle from Extra supermarket, Brasilia.

Possibly one of the best smelling beers around! Peaches, melons and a floral bouquet, from a orange-amber body with a foamy white head the flavour isnt as strong as the aroma its quite sweet with quite a long bitter finish that does require more... ;)

Bottle from Tesco in Eastbourne shared with McTapps. This one was really crazy. I could not believe this one would really start its engines with peaches but it did. Upfront peaches, then a bit of honey, full, smoothy body and a high drinkability. Well, one again the badger boys surprised me.

McTapps (3919) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle from local Tesco in Eastbourne. Pours out in a deep golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of peaches, citrus fruits and light malt. Taste of ripe peaches, light mango, mild hops, barley, cake and malt. Smooth and nice to drink when you are fond of peaches.

MoritzF (8464) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2014
(bottle) Clear, amber colour with a medium-sized and slightly off-white foamy head. Distinctively peach-fruity aroma, slightly floral and almost perfumed with a mildly cara-malty backbone. Moderately bitter and slightly sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Mildly malty taste with hints of wet paper and a present fruit-character with notes of apricot and peaches; moderately dry, bitter-sweet fruit-accented finish with a little hoppy bitterness shining through. A tad too peachy for my taste. 22.IV.14
