3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
19th Aug 2015: shared bottle at the Aug Shrewsbury bottle exchange meeting, cheers Mike. Not a beer I would buy myself, I was pleased to see this and the Cherry version for five of us the try. Poured a clear golden colour with a weak white wisp on top. Very Apricot in all aspects and I have to say a lot better than I expected (not so keen on the Cherry option). Says Apricot on the label and it packs a good Apricot punch, I like Apricots!
