3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated from notes taken 22 Apr 2012 -- Bottle poured into a pint glass. The beer is much like the organic cider in appearance and aroma. Pleasant for both. Flavor is pretty strong fruit flavor, but not excessive or overdone like some mass produced American examples. Very nice beer to drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It’s good. But it’s not a beer. It’s juice. Like from a juice box. The kind where it says it’s apricot juice, but it’s really 97% Apple juice, and they add some apricot concentrate to try and fool you into thinking it’s apricot juice. Apricot, tough of sweetness and tartness.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Maypole, Cambridge. Yellow-orange, very clear and almost flat. Light apricot, resin, crabapple, Chardonnay in the bouquet. Mellow, subtle sour-sweet taste, which rounds to a slightly more pronounced sourness in the finish. Exceptionally tasty and more like a ’proper’ beer than many fruit beers.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer pours a very clear golden color with a small white head that fades quickly. The aroma blends apricots and bready malts, and the taste is similar: mildly sweet and slightly sour with strong apricot flavors all the way through the aftertaste. The palate fuses a slick texture, medium-light body, and a soft carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle. Clear, golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Sweet-ish, fruity, apricot aroma. Taste is sweet-and-sour fruity, apricot notes, slightly prickling sherbet character. Not too sweet, without artificial touch, slightly monotonous. OK.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Birra all’albicocca. Colore chiaro. Gusto più dolce della media. Poco dissetante, ma la nota è fresca. Carbonatazione media o poco più che media. Immediato aroma di albicocca all’olfatto e al gusto, impatto dolce che viene smorzato nel tempo facendo notare anche una nota di mela. Non adatta al pasto, buona idea per un aperitivo o con un dolce fresco. Più facile apprezzarla in piccole quantità. Personalmente un po’ troppo dolciastra.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a very strong fruit (apricot) aroma.
Appearance- A pale yellow similar to AAL style beer, with a small white head.
Taste- Has a powerful fruit flavorful that is rather sweet. Too sweet for me.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation, the sweetness subtracts from the beer to much for me.
Overall- Not my cup of tea er. beer. To much sugar and not enough beer flavor to keep me drinking this more often.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Utobeer, London. Pours a clear golden body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is strong apricot tones, grape peel, pale malts, wine gum and hints of butterscotch. Taste is apricot, butterscotch, pale malts and hints of wine gum and straw. Medium body and carbonation. Quite a pleasant apricot beer, which is a rare genre to a) make and b) pull off properly. Another smooth English beer from Samuel Smith.
