The aroma is nothing to drool over. But the sheer appearance and hoppy taste make it one of my favorite beers. Great with any summertime bbq.

Mediocre in all areas. Aroma doesn’t make you want you to take a drink, and the taste just isn’t there. And the flavor you do get is bland.

DarkFudge99 (5) - Dumont (Irish Headquarters USA), New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2002 does not count
Delicious Apricot Aroma and hop going down...flavor is nothing amazing for your standard pale ale but the Apricot bite at the end gives it it’s distinct advantage over other pales.....very recommended....fruity good and refreshing...Dont miss this one if you like ales!
