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

Cerveja dourada e turva, com espuma baixa, branca e bastante presente. O aroma é surpreendente; o toque de pêssego e frutas frescas é muito perceptível e a impressão é de que se está prestes tomar suco de frutas - não é possível sentir cheiro de malte. O sabor também é surpreendente, com o sabor extremamente forte das frutas utilizadas na produção. Não é uma cerveja equeibrada; é muito doce e não se sente a presença do álcool. Como o aroma promete, lembra um suco de frutas, os que a torna refrescante. O corpo é leve e a drinkability ótima. Falta vigor ao aftertaste é um pouco mais de amargor seria bem vindo. Com certeza uma cerveja especial e boa para momentos específicos. Bastante refrescante e boa para ser apreciada sem alimentos para que se possa apreciar seu caráter diferenciado.

The beer itself has some dryness and a taste of peach at first. Not keen on the mega peachy aroma however. Itís ok. Dry in the finish. Not offensive but smell is odd and slightly offputting. Glad I finally tried it though. 3/5.

The_Osprey (2589) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2015
500ml bottle, BB Dec 2015 ,recommended by a friend. Clear dark orange, highly sparkling, small white head only endures about 30 seconds. Aroma is very peachy as promised, slight cheesey element, but mostly peach. Body is medium, touch of carbonation, smooth. Taste is thin malt, drying earthy vegetable, touch of lime, metallic. Too metallic in the flavour.

Bottle (Xmas Present) Iíve seen this fairly often and avoided it really, but I donít think Iíll be avoiding it or anything from this Brewery again. On the Aroma, strong, strong Peach, was very skunky once opened too. On the taste, Peach, almost Chemical, Tangerine, light Melon, and Biscuity bitterness. Iím not convinced whether the Peach goes with the Malty Biscuits though...

Suave e frutada. O gosto de pêssego é sugestivo, mas não marcante. Carbonatada na medida. Excelente para dias quentes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Real amber nectar - floral and peachy with hints of citrus. Refreshing session beer

Not a bad beer. Easy drinking, slightly hoppy with low carbonation. Not entirely convinced by the peach aroma and taste. Would probably be nice sat outside in the height of summer on a roasting hot day. Donít think I could hack more than one, though.
