Firkin Friday at Bowie location on 08/02/13. Arrived at the table a slightly hazy amber color with no real head at all. The aroma featured some caramel, a little biscuity breadiness, citrus, zesty rinds, light apricot/peach, and some hints of pine. Went down fairly thin and watery with a low level of carbonation. Caramel and a slight biscuity presence started things off taste-wise. Citrus fruits and zesty rinds finished things off. There was a very subtle touch of tangy apricots and peaches the whole way through. Ultimately, the flavors were rather muted and the whole thing was quite forgettable.

Bottle in the campground at BCTC. Pours a clear brown amber with a thin white head. Dank citrus and caramel on the nose. Toasted sesame, nutty malt. Toasty, cool and crisp. Malt and crisp toast on the finish.

Draft at the 2005 Maryland Brewers Spring Fest... Hazy, apricot colored ale. The aroma is full of bigtime apricot. Fizzy and watery with a nice apricot flavor. Medium-bodied at most. I would have this again in the heat of Summer. Very good crossover ale geared toward the women in the crowd. Enjoyed by most everyone at the festival, I would imagine, on such a warm, humid day.
