AdiBeer (2110) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2015
Aroma: intense peaches, some grain malts and not much else. Appearance: clear gold, small, creamy, white head. Taste: light bitter and sweet. Palate: sweets initially, peaches, grain malt, bitters intensify, lightly dry finish. Overall: interesting Fruit Beer, almost a bit too intense peaches in the aroma, yet quaffable. Pint at The Lyric, Soho.

Svesse (6901) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2015
(Cask at Craft Beer Co Islington, London, 24 Apr 2015) Golden colour with foamy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with peaches, sweet malt and citrus. Malty, fruity taste with notes of peaches, soft malt, citrus and a balanced bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain malt sweetness. Tasty and well balanced, with a sweet peach character. Quite nice.

Garrold (2598) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2015
Cask. Hallamshire House, Sheffield. Clear, straw colour. Dense, lasting, white head. Sweet malts, and sweet, tinned peach. Drinks strangely bitter, the taste not matching the aroma. Bit of a claggy palate. Finishes short bitter.

Tap East. Cask. Almost clear gold beer, tiny pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and semi dry and light. Mild fine carbonation. The pale malts bring light cream. Decent and semi sweet peach. Trace of raspberry syrup. Light semi dry finish. Nicely fruity but should there not be some hops in a (proclaimed) IPA?

Theydon_Bois (12726) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015

Taste is peach forward, melon balls, citric pith, strwa, bread dough, pale malt. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi drying close with grassy bitterness. Ok - gets the peach message across fo sho !

Fin (8320) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2015
Keg at Craft 100 Clapham, Good Friday 3rd April 2015 Wonderfully clear golden beer, white filmy head. A little mushy peach, sadly it’s a little safe, the Siren ’Lifes a Peach’ set a very high benchmark. It could do with being a bit more summery but to be fair being consumed alongside Kernel Raspberry it was always an interesting comparison. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

imdownthepub (11384) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Cask conditioned at The Chesterfield Arms, Chesterfield, Derby’s. Hazy gold with white head. Quite a rich, fruity little number, yes peachy in character, some sweetness, light syrupy note but not without dryness as well. Dame Nelly would be pleased!
