1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
Obviously I did not like this beer. The aroma was reminiscent of lemongrass. A hazy gold color, a decent head, but I did not like the flavor which reminded me of green tea. As far as I was concerned, its strongest point was the palate. If had good mouth feel dispite its flavor. All in all Iíd drink a lite american lager before Iíd drink this again.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mellow golden color, little head. Aroma is lightly fruity, but certianly not as strong as Iíd expect in a pale ale. Too sweet, but I could drink it.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Mile Square in Hoboken. When i was younger, i used to think that i was drinking good beer when iíd get a number 9. Now as iíve gotten older iíve realized that the number nine is ok, but nothing special. The apricot comes out very well, and the pale ale that backs it up isnít too bitter. Not bad, but iíve had way better.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at Sam Sneadís. Pours a light orangeish with a small white head. The aroma is fruity. My wife picked up on the apricot right away, without being told that it is made with apricot, but I didnít smell it. Taste is fruity. I was looking for a hoppy finish, but itís just not there. This is a decent beer, but I wouldnít go out of my way to try it again.

Possibly the worst beer Iíve ever tasted. I choked the whole bottle down though as I do not waste beer.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Apricot flavored ale. Vary sweet tatse, with same nose. Decent color. Not a fan of flavored beers, but this one is ok. Not the best Magic Hat offering.

This is better than the awful Circus Boy but still not a beer I would buy again. Lots of fizz but little taste. I will stay away from Magic Hat in the future.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pleasantly light peach and apricot aroma and flavor dominate this beer... until the end when you're left with very watered down fruit juice.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2008 Has a definite apricot taste as stated before. Mouthfeel is pretty good. That being said, Iím not a huge fan of fruity beers, but it is a quality brew nonetheless.

This seems to be a popular beer among some of the young female beer drinkers I see out there. Itís fairly fruity and lacks much bitterness or hop character, though some batches I think i percieve a little of the cascade citrus in the finish. Overall itís not a beer anyone should be ashamed of drinking though it doesnít offer much sophisticated depth.
