COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Handcrafted at Melbourn Bros’ tiny brewery set in a time warp in Stamford using the old manually operated brewing equipment. finest organically grown barley and wheat are used to create a complex ale which having undergone primary and secondary fermentation with different yeasts and extended maturation, is taken to Samuel Smith’s small, independent British brewery at Tadcaster. There it is blended with pure organic apricot fruit juice and a previously cellared organic brew - creating an unparalleled fruit ale. The smooth distinctive character of the matured ale serves as the perfect counterpoint to the pure organic fruit juice.

Cloudy gold - orange beer with a small white head. Palate is smooth. Intense tangy apricot underpinned by creamy malt. Finishes sweet and tangy. Great creamy fruit beer and one in the eye for beer snobs! Ha!

harrisoni (13596) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle from Trafalager Wines, Brighton. Clear gold with lasting white head. Apricot jam on aroma. Yes quite sweet but not overly cloying. Even a touch of sourness on the finish. It’s lovely. Apricot jam beer. Lovely.

bhensonb (10933) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy "apricot" gold with a 4 finger creamy beige head. The aroma is apricot skin. Med body, almost. Flavor is apricot and mixed grain. Surely wheat is there. It’s neither sweet nor bitter. Fairly floral as well as apricot. Certainly a nice drink.

Leighton (10772) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours clear gold with a small, fading white foam head. Nose has some rotting fruits, vague sugary apricots. Medium to big sweet flavor, some faintly tangy apricot. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet and lightly tangy finish, sugry apricot. It’s a touch artificial and syrupy, but the tartness makes it alright.
