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 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale, clear amber with white, lacing head. Aroma is fruity , with a little spice. Flavor is the same, a little citrus. Mostly sweet, not really any hops presence. "Not quite" should read "not at all". Okay, but not what I expected.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tap: Mellow amber-orange, burnt sunburst highlights with a moderate haze & a fizzy, bone-white head. Fruity aroma, but artificial. Chalky & off-putting apricot, orange-y notes. Reminds me of crushed vitamins. Taste is the same way. Dry grain & lots of crushed vitamin-y medicinal notes that really don’t taste good at all. Moderate peach-y fruit. But the Flintstone Vitamin taste just obliterates everything. Mild florals in the finish, that’s all. I can maybe see how this would be a craft gateway for some, but in my opinion, this beer is gross.

Bottle sample at a tasting at work. Clear golden, white head. Apricot icicle. Apricot, a little sour in the mouth. Soft fizz, light body, long apricot aftertaste. Rather disappointing.

Aroma is sweet malts, apricot and caramel. Taste is basic light sweet malts with a fairly well balanced bitterness. Finishes with some apricot sseetness. Appearance is a clear gold/amber with a thin pearl head that that retains fairly well.
