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.

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.

Pours amber with a white head. Smells of reaberries and cherries. Tastes citrussy with some nice fruity undertones. Great session beer.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Marigold orange clear body with medium offwhite head that laces and sticks to the glass. Instant aroma of apricots and a hint of caramel. Light flavor of apricot and hop. Kind of weak compared to the aroma. Thin palate with a refreshing, lingering apricot finish. The Dogfhish Head Aprihop is a better choice.

Hazy golden ale with a thick white head. Sourish apricot and lemon with wheat in aroma. Good malty base with some apricot and a good dose of sharp hops, crisp in mouth, a bit mineral. Medium bodied.

Drank it about a million times, and now am finally rating it. Pours out a straw color with a fruity aroma. The taste isn’t overlly complex, just notes of apricot and sweet malt, agree with previous raters that it needs a kick on the hop end of things, Dogfish’s aprihop is a much better choice

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2005 the standard beer for magic hat. has a little citrus flavor to it but it could use some more hops. good beer that is always avilable.
