3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Body had a nice cloudy golden hue with a white head that had good retention and great lace. Aroma had a complex aroma with some nice apricot notes, there was a nice acidity to it reminding me of citric acid. Some mild malt notes. Flavor had a nice sweetness to it, apricot flavor really played well with the malts, but the yeast really complemented the apricots adding some nice almost wild yeast characteristics. Finish was nice and sweet. Mouthfeel was full.

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.

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.

3.8 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.

3.6 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.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Minder mig om en meget sød æblemost. Kvalm i stedet for frisk. Vandet og ikke specielt pæn at se på. Den her er mere eksotisk, end den er god. På ingen måde mindeværdig.

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.

Light fruity apricot smell, slightly cloudy appearance, sweet and bitterish taste (like rhubarb?) That starts good then diminishes in quality pretty quickly....however, bitterness goes away and beer gets better with time
