Bottle.Orange appearance with a lovely fruitiness. The peachy flavour that dominated is unusual but definitely makes for an unusual but classy beer. Some hops and bitterness add to the complexity. Usually I think beers like this are just for novelty but this really is excellent.Highly recommended.

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.

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

This is my all time favourite summer ale - but it’s great at other times of the year too. A bright deep golden colour with a creamy cream head which lasts to the end; the aroma and flavour are dominated by peach, but the malt and hops do make an appearance. Crisp and refreshing, proof that fruit and beer is a winning combination.

Botter, 0.5l. Aroma- slightly peachy. Initial taste is quite bitter, with slightly intrusive carbonation. Aftertaste was a gorgeous peach flavour. Perfect for a summers evening/barbeque!

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

500ml bottle. Aroma is extremely peachy and floral. Taste is hoppy but also strongly of peaches. Very sweet and a bit watery aftertaste.
