3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask in Einstein’s in Chesterfield. Light golden colour rather than the advertised amber, with a frothy off white head. Very fruity apricot aroma. The taste also has a lot of apricot juice. The underlying flavour is slightly thin and metallic. Not my thing, but OK.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Handpull cask at the Silk Mill Ale & Cider House, Derby. It’s advertised as an amber ale but it’s actually light gold, hazy with a small white head. Floral and astringent scent with a suggestion of hard citrus and talcum powder. Initial sweet taste, with note than a hint of apricot, finishes with a dry bitter-sourness. Complex compared to other beers of its type, and certainly well-made, but doesn’t quite float my boat.

Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma is fruity of apricot, peach and mango with some floral hops too.

500ml bottle bought at KellenTay Beers in Derby. Loose white head to a shiny golden body. Fresh apricot on the nose. Flavoured with apricot and grass hops. Mid-sweet hoppy ending. Soft in the mouth. Very much on an ordinary level (Sunday session at the hotel room 22.02.2015).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at Three Tuns, Dronfield - Much hyped by my friends who’d had this the night before, so was looking forward to it. Big nose of apricots dominate this, the body looks okay - a bit hazy, but nothing disturbing - and the head laced all the way down. The sweetness of the beer was apparent early on, the apricots again coming through, but leaving the bitterness of a sourer fruit. Unusual, and got a bit fed up of it towards the end....

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, Pale gold hazy beer, no head. Aroma of what may be apricots, just sweeter. Taste is sour fruit, not sure what again could be apricots. Carbonated lager like on the palate. A good beer reminiscent of a belgian.
