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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bright orange sunshine body with a thin white collar. Sweet apricot aroma. Sugary, candied fruits, dried apricot. Some nice things going on. This is a suitable beer for one who gravitates toward the sweeter side. Personally, I find this cloying. A few ounces is more than sufficient. A bottle to be shared several ways.
