Bottle. Aroma: Skunk apricot. Not real skunk, the beer wasn’t spoled, but it had stale, can, grain odor mixed in with fruit. decent head tastes like a basic beer with some fruit extract mixed in, lager-y, sweet, semi-pleasant. May have poured some of this or hurried through it. not exciting. magic hat = mediocre brews a notch above macros

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2006 A very nice golden color with an orangish tint. Small white head that faded very rapidly, but the aroma it gave off was very nice. Fruity and mysterious, citrus hints. Palate was very nice, lots of carbonation. Nice taste, but it disapeared all to quickly. It made it seem like something was lacking at the end, but an very enjoyable beer non-the-less. I will be getting this again.

Lovely golden color, not much head. Strong flowery aroma. Taste of citrus with hints of something floral and something fruity. Quite enjoyable.

Draft Pours a clear amber with a small head. Aroma of malts and fruit. Taste is a strong fruit blend. Not all that bad. Tasty beer once and a while.

Mild fruity ale. I wouldn’t classify it as a pale ale, less hoppy then I would expect from a Pale Ale. Not bad and not great. Medium flavor.

Wasn’t sure what to expect from this "flavored not quite pale ale" Poured a nice orange color w/ a moderate quickly diminishing head. Definately had a sweet, citrus aroma & taste up front. That flavor stayed w/you throughout but wasn’t overpowering. I’m not generally a fan of flavored/fruit beers but I enjoyed this one. Refreshing

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2008 A long-overdue re-rate, was probably my second or third micro. Bottle. Lemon-citrus aroma, big perfume somewhere between rosehips and raspberries with a bit of apricot cough syrup mixed in. Noisy orange pour with a fizzy beige head. Malty, chalky, cough syrup taste, apricot and a touch of grain. Medium body with a bit of carbonation. Nice, and different, but a big disappointment from what I remember. Surely wouldn’t refuse another, though.
