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.

Fruity. Eh. Ok. Nothing to make you say woooh this is good. But it was a light fruity beer. I’d have it again I played beiruit with this and was fine. The fizz on my tounge felt funny and the coloar was apricoty.

-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.

An inoffensive beer that would be a great choice for a Bud fan. The beer is difficult to describe. Not a pale, and with a slight fruit tartness. The flavor is lacking any distinguishing characteristics and I’d likely only buy this again if it was the only craft beer available.

Bottle in Philadelphia. Strong spicy aroma with a lingering sweetness. Apricot a bit over powering with a banana back bone.

Nice apricot beer! Very light and refreshing! Pours clear and golden. Perfect for a summer day!

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.
