on tap at Mellow Mushroom, Raleigh. Deep gold, intense aroma but not too strong. Nice flavor, complex, but was hard to pick out much individually.

-Date Tasted : 1-12-10
-Rating : 2
-Brew Date/Batch# : N/A
-Mode : 22oz. bottle
-Source : St. Louis area grocery
-Appearance : good amber and golden
-Aroma : smell sweet and like hair cleaning supplies
-Flavor : nasty, how do they even call this “not quite pale ale”. They need to tell you that this is a fruity beer. Tastes like rotten apricots and dirty peaches.
-Overall : I couldn’t even finish this one because I hate sweet fruity beers. I wouldn’t drink this ever again. Very disappointing that this beer is coming from Magic Hat. I claim false advertisement I didn’t know I was getting a fruit beer.

Pours a light amber to straw color with medium head. Sweet, almost like wheat but then moves towards peaches and apricots. Nice finish. Not really my style but a good try at something different.

Really great and complex fruity flavors. Not over the top sweet and not the familiar fruit beer flavor. It offers a more robust malt backbone. Overall a great beer.

Best choice when only faced with larger commercial fizzy brews. Limited head, good carbonation. While not too familiar with MH’s other beer, I would expect this beer would be pretty good without the apricot essence. Good maltiness underneath the fruitness

Bottled. Very sweet with a burst of peach and apricot flavoring. Light on the palate and very smooth going down. Great for the late spring and early summer.

A solid brew that can be drank when you are in the mood for something light. Solid fruit flavors. A staple for the more casual beer drinker.

Nice fruity aroma. Pretty good flavor. Good for a session beer, but I am a big Magic Hat fan.
