2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I hate to pour out a bomber after 2 sips, but drinking it would be far worse. LyndaNova nailed this one perfectly. Beautiful deep amber crystal clear pour, small tan head that vanishes immediately with no lacing ... consistent with thin and watery mouthfeel. Nose of sweet malts, peaches, and floral hops. Taste is nasty ... sweet malts, light peach fruit, artifidial perfume overtones. Thin and nasty in the mouth. Just poured it out after a third sip.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Any first impressions?
-A big-bubbled head dwindles to thin veil over the transparent russet.
-Sweet peach syrup takes over the nose.
-That mineral yeast again nags the toasted maltiness and peachy sweetness.
-Large, fluffy bubbles and the rotund, sweet body form a satisfying mouthfeel.
What if you dig deeper?
-This singular flavor profile would be another of their beers to be paired with spicy food.
-Peachy fruitiness goes into cherry territory at times.
-This is the same gimmick as their True Blue Blueberry Ale, and their Ginger Mild, just another kind of flavoring. Yawn.
Bottle; no date.

Pour dark brown with small, tight, longlasting head. Smells nice of light peach and sweet malt. Flavor is much lighter with the peach being mostly covered by the malt-as it warms, a much rounder and sweeter flavor profile comes out as the peach works in as a nice background for the malts. Overall, its good but could use more backbone

I used to think I hated fruit beers, but now that i’ve had some good ones I really think that if they’re done well I like them. This peach is much better than it’s rating would lead me to believe. The sweet malty lighthouse ale base is perfect for adding the peach flavor to this brew. Delicious. I’m wondering if these other raters got the wrong brew!?

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
22oz bottle consumed on 9/13/2005. Brew #01709 (batch number maybe?). Deep ruddy-chartreuse color with some burgundy tones in there. Bottle conditioned and unfiltered. Big, light-beige head. Lacing is in sheets. Awesome looking beer. Peach essence and dry yeast in the nose. Slight hint of pale, sugary grains. Flavor is VERY attenuated, surprisingly so. Hugely so. Dry and papery, notes of seltzer water and salt. Peachy, dry and pretty uninspiring. Peppery carbonation, more saltiness on the end, pretzels and zero sweetness. As it warms and breathes, the peach flavor is more noticeable and slightly pleasant, but just can’t recover from the strange texture and complete lack of malt sweetness.

Holy peaches, batman! Very strong peach aroma and taste completely override this one. Interesting, but I cannot say I’d seek it out again.

Light reddish brown color with ready head. Malt, hop and peach tone in aroma. Peach nut flavor. Tastes more like sucking on a peach pit than an overwelling fruitiness and very good at that. Bar harbor has made some of the first fruit beers that I’ve tried that are worth drinking.
