2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2006 ~~Org. Ar.6 Ap.3 Fl. 6 Pa. 3 O.I.14 = T.S. 3.2. ~~ had this on tap at some Fox Sport bar in an airport in PA. The only thing move vauge than that is prob. my rating. As I was already feeling swell, I ordered based on Tap designs.... the cool 9 did it. Anyway, I didn’t get much fruit out of it. Seemed rather an average ale, with little malts and an easy hop linger... too easy. I thought it was an American Strong Ale? or something like that.... but whatever, it was only ok. -
---- Now looking back... very average... no fruit. Nasty cheap pale. Not too impressed. Lowered Score to present 2.6... damn. 12/ 28/ 06.

Draught. Clear copper color with thin off-white head. Apricot and caramel aroma. Apricot flavor well balanced with the malt. Dry rather than sweet. Very good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle-plurs an apricot hue with a nice soapy white head and good lacing. aroma of metallic fruits-berries and grains with a light diacytl butter note. flavors of highly grainy with light fruity notes and sunflower seeds. slightly oily body that was thin with moderate carbonation, which i thought would be higher than it was. This is not very good, but thanks to hopdog for the try.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice-looking pour — light copper with bubbly head. Aroma of apricot and lightly toasted, flowery malts. Light berry and apricot flavor that competes with the malts. Short fruity finish. Light to medium body with soft carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gold-amber color, small head. Nose is distinctly apricot. Inital apricot flavor fades after about the 4th sip. I did not realize this was supposed to be an apricot beer until I really checked out the label. I actually liked this beer, but I would not consider it a good example of a fruit beer.
