Poured from a bottle bought in Chicago. Pours a slightly hazy, light gold with a hue of orange. Aroma is of malty sweetness and fruit. Very low hop character and I get hints of plum and apple. Flavor is slightly bitter right up front that quickly fades into moderate malty sweetness that lasts for a majority of the taste. Fruitiness is apparent with hints of apricot and citrus. I get the impression of stale hops and very little bitterness. The mouthfeel is pretty light and sticky. The back end of the taste is a lingering bitterness and metallic flavor. Overall,not a bad beer. This would be an OK beer for a day

A refreshing beer for a hot summer day. Slight fruity aroma. Taste is a little too sweet for me, but a nice easy thirst quencher.

De geur is heel goed, een echt abrikozenbier maar de smaak daarentegen is een serieuze tegenvaller.

served in standard pint glass
HOPS: Cascade & Apollo / MALTS: Pale, Crystal
A- yellow-golden. Pours with nearly 2-fingers of attractive off-white head; quickly drops to nice full coat. exceptional lace coating on glass as level drops.
S - very fruity; Apricots!; detectable toasted malts. Highly distinctive (and hard to rate).
T- sweet; mildly malty; unusual. Definitely "not quite pale ale". A slight bitterness eventually emerges in the finish. IBU = 20
M - pleasant; effervescent
O: crisp & refreshing; very good hot weather brew. Also works for me in the other 3 seasons.

Tap at Hard Rock in Orlando. Pint. Golden color with a medium amount of head. Lacing better than average. Aroma is very cereal and grain like...as is the taste. Some bitterness so you know they attempted to complement the malty sweet with hops. Mostly resembles other standard pale ales. Relatively solid mouthfeel bit finish is heavier than desired. Fond memories of this one in the Magic Hat grab bag at Liquor Lyle’s but that’s about it. Skippable.
