3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From 12 oz bottle, variety pack, had this on numerous occasions, but I’m making effort in 2015 to actually leave some comments
Aroma: Caramel, Citrus, Fruitiness, Apricots
Appearance: Amber, clear to hazy, white head
Taste: Heavy sweet, medium bitter
Palate: light body, slick texture, average carbonation, long bitter/apricot finish
Overall: Tastes like what I expect a Pale Ale with Apricots to taste like. Nothing crazy, but it’s a solid fruit ale. Nice clear and a bit fruity. I can see why it’s a gateway beer into other styles. It’s a bit too sweet for me and I’m not a fan of apricots, but it’s really not a bad beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
It pours golden with a white head. It has earthly aromas, with citrus and dried fruits. It is sweet with the taste of dried fruits, cherries and earthly elements. It has a semi dry, sweet finish that is made lively by the carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a lovely amber with a frothy, off-white head. Decent retention. Lots of stick lacing. Nose is reminiscent of spunky apple cider. Apricot comes through nicely. Just a hint of something medicinal. Taste is predominately sweet, but there are pronounced hop notes. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Decent brew.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light gold color this beer has an interesting aroma but is way to apricotty in its flavor. Different but maybe a little too much so.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slight fruity apricot aroma with lagerish malty backbone. Not sweet. A bit more malt than a lager, but has a lager feel to it. Drinkable and ok if given, but nothing special.

Small sample from wife’s glass. On tap at MacGregors. Sweet peaches, some light malts and avtiuch of bittering hops. Thin mouthfeel. Meh.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
First tasted at Woody’s woodfired pizza in Boston in 1999 the magic of this beer has captivated me ever since. The apricot flavor is just the right amount to be enjoyable and not overpowering. A good beer for a summer day with burgers or pizza. Available in bottles and cans but inside the bottlecaps you get to read funny bits of wisdom with each beer. My favorites: Dogs are King of Everything. Does killing time damage eternity?

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden orange pour with quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is berries/fruit and a hint of yeast. Flavor is fruit up front, lots of carbonation, alcohol, no noticeable hops. Not bad for a shandy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pour. Hazy golden with a foamy white head. Apricot and bright fruit aroma. Creamy medium body. Bright fruit taste. Generally not a fan of fruit beers, but this is actually really good.
