3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught, at Tabla, Madison Square, Manhattan.
Rich golden colour with a smooth fine creamy beige head. Lovely drink with my good buddy Funk. Crisp, refreshing, fruity flavour is smooth and inviting. Apricot and vanilla in equal measures. Could have easily drunk several more of these. Palate is silky and smooth.

Sweetish fruity beer with definite, but not overpowering, notes of apricot. I've always liked this beer a lot. Medium copper color with a medium white head that leaves some thin lace. Very drinkable.

Sweet peach/apricot nose with a copper body and tasty light apricot hops flavor. I like this beer because the fruit flavor isn't overwhelming like many fruity beers.

Tremendously fruity aroma - raspberry then citrus then perhaps other berries??? - coming out of a light golden beer with a quickly dissipating white head. Mild hops and more fruit hit the tongue but nothing remarkable to follow the fruity aromas. Slight aftertaste is a little subdued and earthy. OK.

Gold to light copper in color with a faint aroma. A pale ale? Well, a bit fruity and light, easy to drink, but not memorable. This is more of a summer ale.

This wasn't what I thought it was going to be. Fruity with a crisp finish. If I wanted alcohol in my fruit juice I'd make a mixed drink...

Gold color, very distinct apricot taste. One of the magic hat staples, but always good. Had this before but waited until now after having it at a bar on tap. (2/4)

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
I'd heard about this beer for a long time before I had it. Why the heck do people seek out this beer? This sucks. Light cider-gold. Nose lagerish, but a bit skunky, a bit of a sour breadiness to it. Flavor is just a fascinating combination of medicine and apricots, like some kind of kid's cough medicine brewed up in a dingy pharmacy somewhere. Should be called Magic Hat #2, as "number two" would be an appropriate description.

Sampled @ brewery. Cloudy yellow color with a full malty aroma. The first thing you taste is blueberries and peaches. Then I come to taste the real mystery of this stuff which is ____. I know, but I'm not telling (unless you ask).
