3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2011 Bottle, The pour was a clear golden copper in color with a thin (1/2 finger or less) frothy white head that dissipated rapidly and had fair lacing.
The aroma was of moderate grain malts, a mild floral hop and an earthy yeast with a definite hint of apricot and maybe a little honey.
The taste was a little malty and had a nice fruity note in the beginning then shifted to a slightly bitter hoppy flavor at the end with just a hint of spice that left the flavor hanging around for a decent amount of time.
Mouthfeel was excellent, with the body being light to medium and a the texture being creamy at first then rather dry at the end with a nice lively carbonation.
Overall, the mild bitter finish and the flavors that were left to linger allowed you to enjoy the full embodiment of this brew. Nice and tasty and quite drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Bone Fish Grill. Pours a caramel orange with a thin white ring. Aroma of sweet fruit. Crisp and refreshing similar to a Pilsner but with a sweet fruity flavor. They say apricot but it seems more like berries. Medium carbonation. Very enjoyable. No harshness or bitterness. Nice clean taste.

Aroma has some barnyard, basement aromas and earth in it. Taste has some weird aroma that I cannot identify. Thin feel, average carbonation. Drinkable but not my favorite.

Apricot flavouringA Beer Cloaked in Secrecy
An ale whose mysterious and unusual palate will swirl across your tongue and ask more questions than it answers.

Super crisp and fruity. Refreshing. Aroma is amazing. You can feel the Apricot taste and aroma. Recommended if you like something different and refreshing. Great choice for women

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden with active carbonation. 1/2 inch white head that fades quickly to a thin ring with light lacing that quickly slides down the glass. Nice hoppy/fruity/citrus aroma with a hint of sweetness. Reasonable mouth feel for the pale ale style. Odd malt or fruit initial taste that transitions to a sweet aricot with a very slight bitterness with the fruit sweetness lingering on the tongue. This beer is interesting, at least, and hardly ordinary. It is enjoyable enough to finish the 6-pack over a few days, but not enjoyable enough that I will buy it again. Even though it is easy drinking at first, it begins to wear out its welcome; I couldnít have more than 2 at a sitting.

I remember the first time I ever had this beer. I thought it was great, and it still is if what you define as "great" is more commonly defined as "not that good." Itís color is darkish light, its taste is weak, and I couldnít tell you what it smells like. This was once a great beer to get you started in drinking craft beer. Now itís a great beer to ignore.

I had it on tap. It pours a copper color with a white head and little lacing. The aroma is berries and bread malt. The taste is berries, bread, and honey. The sweetness isnít overwhelming, and itís pretty smooth. This was pretty good.
