BlackHaddock (3488) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2012
March 2009: 500ml Brown bottle, drank very close to its best by date. Poured into a vase shaped ’Old Speckled Hen’ pint glass. Good looking beer, fine amber colour with an off-white foaming head. The body was bright and clear. Incredible peach aroma, they claim to add extract of peach blossom to the brew, well you can certainly smell it. The beer is far from sweet, but that peach blossom does come through in the flavours too. A good ’bite’ to the beer, tangy and hoppy too. I am not a big fruit beer or sweet beer sort of guy, but this beer realy impressed me. Had I read the label more carefully I doubt I’d have bought it, but glad I did. The 4.5% alcohol holds up well and although I have reviewed plenty of beers from this brewery, this is one of the best in my opinion.

This beer is very interesting, it has peachy aroma, almost as ice tea. Taste is good, peachy and sweet.

Sensacional aroma de pêssego. Visualmente normal, sem espuma. Paladar excepcional, com bouquet de pêssego e retrogosto floral bem lupulado. Cerveja bem rica.

Light peach aroma. The head quickly disipated. Light coppery amber color. Light flavor of peaches, followed by malt and a balancing bitterness. Fruit seemed to last through the finish.

Aroma is peach/melon jello. Copper, pours a small tan head. Flavour is a natural peachand melon, fine malt underpinning, with some woody, nutty notes also. Light bodied, very well balalnced, delightful mouthfeel. Aterrific session ale. Thanks so much Dorothy, who is my neighbour Jean’s sister, she brought this for me from England.

Sigmund (4947) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2009
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 4.5%. Deep golden to amber colour, moderate white head. Distinct and beguiling aroma of ripe peaches / peach flowers, even peach candy - not quite what you expect in a beer, though. The flavour is fruity with moderate notes of peaches and zesty hops (can’t identify the alleged notes of melons). Not too sweet, not too bitter (actually, slightly MORE bitterness wouldn’t hurt). Soft mouthfeel, refreshing and pleasant to drink. A nice change-of-pace beer.

mkel07 (3092) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 24, 2010
500ml bottle. Light brown to amber colour with a thin tiny white head. Fruity melon aromas tantalise the nose and it smells almost like a fruit soft drink. Peach flavours dominate and leave a nice fruity aftertaste.

Bottle from Morrisons. Strong dry peach aroma and flavour. Orange amber colour. Slightly harsh but still good.

Gloriously golden, deliciously crisp. White head is brief, but persists as a creamy cover throught the enjoyment of this beer. Aroma of peach, surely,very attractive. Nice, sweet and hoppy, with peaches, melon, caramel and vanilla. Finish does not go too far, but leaves a message to go for more. I love these badger beers. These guys know how to use hops without ruining their ales.

Yes, it is golden, at least what comes to color. Smells really nice, like hops with honey. Taste is in align with smell, and aroma agrees. The only thing I could wish being better is mild wateriness. Other than that this is well balanced good beer straight from super market, which makes this stuff to have great price quality ratio.
