Delicious, light and fruity. Wonderful and refreshing as I’ve come to enjoy from all Magic Hat brews. Definite apricot/citrus flavor.

Tap in Columbus, OH. Golden beer, decent white head. Aroma has a hint of the apricots that are described to be in this beer. Flavor very floral with a hint of the apricot. Little malt flavor accompanies the beer. Very smooth going down. To me, this is an example of a well-balanced fruit beer. Too often I taste all fruit or no fruit. This has a pleasant touch of the apricot.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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

Taste its overly herbal. No citrus or piney hop character. Malt character is more sugary than mouthful. Better on tap.

An excellent Pale Ale. I absolutely love the apricot aftertaste. Could drink these all night.

Nice ale with a hint of apricot. Light enough to get absolutely hammered, but strong enough that you don't want to. Excellent "anytime" beer.

Nice apricot flavor to start, finishes a tad bitter. Interesting, just not my taste.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured with a small white head, was a golden yellow color. Smells of yeast and tasted strongly of apricot. This is a light beer, with minimal carbonation and a bit oily with a short finish. I was pleased overall with this beer, seems like a good beer to drink throughout the day on a long summer weekend.

Bottle. Easy to find. Kind of hard to put your finger on to describe. Was the first beer I had had with apricot flavoring added and while I didnít notice it at all in the beginning, the more of them Iíve drank Iíve noticed them become very distinct. Has a citrusy hop note common with most American Pale Ales (which I think is what they refer to in their description). May not be the perfect example of a fruit beer perhaps but seems to want to blaze a bit of a trail of itís own and does it very well.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Subtle apricot flavour, a little nutty (?), little hops in aroma.amber, clear, minimal head, medium sweetness, medium body, average carbonation, long finish. This is my go to beer when I want something refreshing and pleasing. A great session beer if you can handle the sweetness.
