2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale gold, thick white head. Hops and lunaria aromas's, as well as something perilously close to artificial sweetener. Taste yields apricot, bread-yeast - and that's it. How magic. Mouthfeel is like sparkling water: refreshing but empty. Oh well, well-tried. Not succeeded.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2003 Bottled. GBBF2003. Good bright golden colour, modeate thin white head and moderate condition. Dominant apricot aroma, sweet and banana wheaty in the mouth with the apricot more hidden. Quite oily in the mouth and finish with the apricot lingering

Poured a mundane golden color with almost no head to it. Had a pleasent hoppy aroma with a hint of apricot. Tasted like a watered down version of a lackluster pale ale. It finished dry. Im suprised this beer was listed as a fruit beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is fresh, malty and hoppy - a little artificial. It is amber and has a fine head. The flavor is like the aroma combined with a strong note of peach.

Bottle: So-so nose Fruity, apricot peach. Light orange golden color. Dried fruit taste with a slight hop background. Quick watery finish. Has that summer beer theme going on. Kinda refreshing. Should of pumped up the fruit. Another mediocre offering from a Magic Hat.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep golden and slightly hazy with a effervescent head that dissipated quickly. Aromas of citrus and fruit with a bit of graininess (wheat?) to it. Palate is quite thin and I found it slightly watery. Flavors of honey, orange and corriander stand out. Slight metallic aftertaste.

Not too impressed with this one. Tasted like a pale ale with a slight hint of apricots. Some apricots in the nose. Overall not too much goin on here.

Nice ale with a hint of apricot. Light enough to get absolutely hammered, but strong enough that you don't want to. Excellent "anytime" beer.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Both the aroma and taste are dominated by apricot. Not much hop flavor. Light bodied. Mouth-feel similar to that of a an ESB.
