COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not syrupy sweet like most fruit beers, this is for beer drinkers! Just a hint of apricot gives this delicious medium-bodied ale a wonderful aroma and a unique finish. Try it! Available on draft and in bottles.

On tap at Columbus Brewing Co, Columbus OH, on 12 March 2010. Pale amber in colour. Loose white head. Quite fruity aroma. More so on the palate. Slightly sweet but not too syrupy or artificial. Light mouthfeel. I don’t usually like this sort of thing but this was OK.

Sample at CBC. Clear yellow/gold with a thin white head. Aroma of stone fruit and malt. Apricot flavor with sweet malt and a sweet creamy finish. Not a bad summer beer.

Poured into a Sam Adams pint glass it produced a finger worth of white head that settled to a thin lace. The body of the brew was a apricot color how appropriate. It had aroma of apricot and flavors of apricot that’s about it for this brew. Oh ya good carbonation and light in the mouth. Now I am not to keen on extract added fruit craft beers. Use the real thing brewers please it is much better, and more in the sprit of a craft product. Ok enough of a rant Serving type: bottle

My friend Travis brought this one from out of state to the annual Memorial Day party. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel-amber color with a medium sized yellow-white head. The aroma was light sweet apricot. The flavor was tangy with faint apricot and a touch of nut. The beer turned a bit dry towards the finish and had light lingering apricot. Ok.

Bottle at Hang Over Easy. Aroma is, obviously, full of apricot. Also notes of malt, but not much else. Taste is pretty heavy on the apricot, with some malts and a faint taste of hops afterwards. It was not unlike drinking a piece of toast with apricot jam on it. It wasn’t overly sweet, so I’ll give it credit for that. Could have been better, could have been worse.

On tap at the CBC. Gold color with a thin white head. Thick apricot jam nose. Tastes of oppresive fruit syrup over a light ale. This beer is all about the apricots. Not the nasty artificial flavors that ruin many fruit beers, but still not a compliment to me. There is some home made bread under the jam, but I find the apricot too heavy handed.

Bottle. Pours amber in color with a medium white head. Aroma of apricots, as one would think. Flavor is malty with a hint of apricot. Much better than some of the other fruit beers I’ve tried; this one is like beer with a hint of fruit - not fruit with a hint of beer. Not bad.

Draft at the brewpub. Filtered, slightly hazy orange color. Not aggressively fruited, the apricot is actually quite well incorporated. A nice sour tangy aftertaste. Easy drinking stuff. Sweet, malty, watery body. Unique.

Smells like apricots. Flavor is also dominated by apricots, much more than I can drink; way too fruity.
