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

0.5 l bottle from K-Supermarket Ruoholahti, Helsinki. Golden clear colour, practically no head. Aroma has peach, well, and so does the taste too. Also some English hops. Quite good with some distinctive taste to set it apart from the others of the same style.

TheKernOwl (109) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2016
Peach, butterscotch and nectarine nose seems OK. Then more peach and gentle malts in body, which seem to separate (left-right stereo style). Initially thought this was a touch syrup-y, but is nowhere near as bad as Timmermans Peche (tried alongside this), and seems to get mellow-er when warmer.

Bottle. Appearance - golden amber with a decent head. Nose - butterscotch as soon as the cap is popped. Then sweet peach right enough. Taste - peach and butterscotch again. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a finish that could be cleaner. Overall - this gets very sickly as you go down the glass.

nybol (1064) - DENMARK - MAR 12, 2016
Næsten intet skum, med en stærk lugt af parfume eller blomst. Let humlet og en helt klar smag af fersken. Nærmest en frugtøl.

ndburns (53) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2016
500ml bottle from Asda. Pours a sparkling orangey gold, with a light white head. Aroma is strongy of peaches. Taste is gentle malt and peaches, the latter lasting through the finish.

Pours amber, thin white head. Aroma is peach and lager. Taste is peach and light malt. Nothing special.

LazyPyro (337) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear golden orange colour with a large white head. Aroma of peaches and malt. Definite sweet peach taste in the flavour too but not overwhelming, hops and malts too... I actually really like it. The peach carries through to the aftertaste as well. Really nice beer. Could even be a nice session beer especially in the summer, although perhaps a bit too sweet to have too many bottles.

Crisp with a bit of bubblegum. Refreshing. Light bitterness. Sweet aftertaste. Peach in a bottle.

colui72 (554) - HONG KONG - AUG 28, 2015
Light amber with thin white head. Aroma is peaches and cheap lager type hops. Taste gets the peaches and a malty body. Usual easy drinking British commercial blond ale. Not bad, but nothing to tell to my grandson.
