2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice aroma of peach soda, not very beer like at all... Golden/peach in color with a very minimal head... Fizzy peach soda with a hint of beer flavor, very much like what Michelob Ultra did, but with much more success... Oddly dry finish, could be ok in the summer, not bad, very different....

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Pours yellow orange with a very thin, fizzy white head. Smells of peaches and a bit of cereal malts. Tastes nice and peachy with a good balance of cereal malt flavors as well. Peach flavors start to taste fake towards the finish. Medium body, fizzy carbonation. Generally overcarbonated.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bought for my wife ’cause she likes the fruit beers, but I wanted to try it on the 100 degree night. Pours a beautiful effervesent golden pear color with a thin white head. The nose is pure peaches. The flavor is very refreshing with peaches and a clean, nice nutty finish. I don’t care how much crap I catch for this, I like it.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Popped the top and immediate aromas of peach hit my nose. This beer pours very light and appears very thin and watery... I had to check the bottle to make sure this wasn’t a cider, because that’s what it looks like. Lasting big white head and very carbonated. Not usually a big fan of fruit beers but the aroma on this is actually appealing, just peaches though, no malt no hops nothing else. Flavor is extremely dry, high level of carbonation makes it seem even drier. Not much flavor. Light bodied and refreshing. Not bad.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2008 Bottle from BevMo. Dark golden in color upon pouring. A bit of sediment floating around in the bottle. Fairly grainy aroma with a little bit of peach seltzer water. Bitter grainy flavors with a little bit of peach. Decent fruit beer.

Hazy golden, fairly large head, decent lacing and retention. Aroma is very peach dominated, sweet and lightly tart. Pale malts, almost no hops. Simple and straightforward, but good flavors and enjoyable.

A terrible color for a peach beer to have: pale, underripe as it were. The finish is simply watery. Four Peaks Arizona Peach is pretty superior, and even that isnít a life-changing beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to Jason for sharing. The beer pours to a hazy plasticized yellow body with a fizzy white head that lasts. The aroma is very nicely peach up front. In fact, I quite enjoy the nice peach aromas that emanate from the glass. But, once itís been sitting awhile, I get some sort of stale alfalfa hop in my nose. That put it off for me. If youíd remove that, this aroma is fantastic. The flavor is peaches with a stale pale malt and old hops. Perhaps this bottle is simply past itís prime? The palate is average with a slick texture. I honestly think this would be a mid 3ís beer if it were fresh and on tap.

Thanks to Jason for sharing.
Golden pour w/ some light hints of orange and a tall fluffy white head w/ great lacing. Smells hugely of peach extract fake peach stuff hints of apricot as well.. super super sweet although not bad. Slightly thin palate w/ out much to it, to thin. Flavor was mellow mostly just peaches w/ a hint of raw grains. Not good, but not bad.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy deep golden pour with leanings toward peach/apricot juice. A firmly planted white head forms, very slowly fading away, looks like soft cotton. The aroma is really enthralling, straight, up, grade-a pure and fresh peach juice. No hint of alcohol. Very light yeast notes and a whisper of grain compose about five percent of the nose, the rest is just peach. not very beer-like in any typical sense, but if peaches were the goal, Marin has succeeded marvelously. The flavor is, as expected, not nearly as enticing as the aroma. Peaches still remain the focal point and are now joined by dusty yeast thatís grows expansive with each sip. Light grainy malts cut some of the sweetness from what was probably a cloyingly high level down to something negotiable, medium-high. Acidity is mild, bitterness low and astringency low-mild. A gummy note washes in during a semi-sweet finish that is short-lived and quite chalky. The mouthfeel is bristling with tiny compacted bubbles, light-medium bodied and slightly sticky and chalky/dusty. A fun beer in need of some fine-tuning in the flavor department.
