Bottle. Difficult to work out where this is meant to sit, but what does that matter! The hops coming through nice and cleanly and it is a pleasant drink on a sunny day.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Beervana 2011. We were a little divided over this one. Looked ok in the glass. Light orange with a small white head. Some ok lacing as well. Doughy bread and stone fruits swamped the nose. Was a little bit of a mess but not too bad I guess. A solid caramel and biscuit malt back some light and zesty hoppage. Creamy palate which was nice. We ended up deciding that this was a solid brew nonetheless and was better than the other offerings

Gorgeous glowing amber colour with a white head that thins and sits, covering the entire top of the beer, leaving a touch of lace. Aromas tend toward nectarines and malt biscuits, like it says in the label. Not pungently aromatic, but smell there is is undoubtedly quite pleasant. Full body and lush fruity apricot flavours. Bitterness spreads and sits along with malt sweetness. Not bad at all, but not the show stopper the label promises, but not bad, but... but... but. Oh I don’t know.
