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

colui72 (419) - 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.

Bottle, pours a clear light amber color with a light tan head. The smell is peach, floral, mild grain. The taste is toasted malt, peach, floral, fruity. The body is light with crisp carbonation. Strange stuff.

RafaoSSBR (4) - São Caetano do Sul, BRAZIL - JUL 7, 2015 does not count
Dourado forte que lembra mel, levemente turva. Boa formação de espuma e boa persistência. O aroma de pêssego predomina, mas ainda é possível sentir um leve aroma herbal e cítrico. Boa carbonatação, corpo leve para mais, com sabor de malte, levemente adocicado. O sabor do pêssego mais suave fundo herbal e um leve amargor no ceu e no fundo da boca. Aftertaste doce, floral, o pêssego bem suave com um fundo amargo terroso leve que persistem. Leve, refrescante, com bom drinkability.

Tognetta (494) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JUL 6, 2015
Amarela translúcida, espuma de boa formação e persistente. Aroma bem nítido de pêssego, amargor me lembrou um pouco as pilsens checas, com aquele toque de gramínea. Paladar de corpo bem leve, o pêssego ainda continua, mas menos intenso que no aroma, novamente um amargor mais "europeu" de leve intensidade. Aftertaste tem um pouco de remédio, diferente da ultima que provei, mas ainda assim uma boa cerveja considerando sua proposta.

Fast klare dunkel orangegelbe Farbe, ordentliche leicht beige Schaumkrone. Geruch intensiv fruchtig nach Pfirsich, süß, kaum Bier. Geschmack süß, viel Pfirsichsaft, gering herb, kaum malzig.

Quite sweet aroma. Smells and tastes a bit of pineapples. A bit syrupy on the tongue and leaves a deep aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours shiny golden orange. Smells of peach gummy, mirabelle plum and dried apricot. Taste is soft, fresh and a bit watery. Aftertaste is sheer peach.

Flaske 500ml fra Kilpishalli. Gyldenbrun. Lavt skum med litt lacing. Heftig ferskenaroma. Smaken kun fersken. Snodig øl. Ikke helt vellykket - men gjennomført.
