DuffMan (9741) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 19, 2007
Deep orange amber, aroma of fresh apricots and melons. Despite the dominant fruit aroma, the palate is really only lightly fruity and well balanced by good maltiness and a mildly bitter finish. Very refreshing.

Bottle. Clear golden colour with a nice white head. Aroma and taste of malts and fruits (peach?). Nice summer beer.

Quack-Duck (9356) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2007
bottle. Deep golden colour, medium-sized head. Aroma of ice-tea and peach. I expected a sweet beer, which it definitely is not. Very hoppy indeed, but the pleasant hoppy flavour is over-shadowed by peach flavours, which seem quite artificial. Nearly no malt detectable, which makes the beer rather thin.

pivo (2672) - GERMANY - JUL 29, 2007
Big peach aroma--like a glass of peach juice. Amber color, low scumy head. Sweet malt and of course peach flavor. There is a big broad hop bitter that comes fairly early in the taste profile (mostly because the malt body is so weak and thin), and this makes it somewhat beer-like. Overall, I wasnt turned on by this brew.

Thanks to Kimmy. Artificial nose- like apricot hair shampoo. Nice golden copper color iwth a small layer of a head. soapy peach and melon taste. It caught me off guard as I havent read the lable before.

Bottle. Poured a real gold colour with delicious peach and melon aroma. This is not a session beer.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2007
Interesting English ale with a powerful peachy nose. Quite pleasant but actually the aroma isnt very beer-like. Sweet but not cloying. Light body and hoppiness.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - MAY 28, 2007
Appearance: Amber color and little head. Aroma: Intense in peaches but very artificial. Reminiscence of plums, apricot and sweet orange. Flavor: begin mainly to peaches, but like aroma is artificial. The sweetness in the beginning progress to medium hops bitter. Palate: Light body and watery texture. Exotic beer but mediocre. (sorry for my english)

downender (8189) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2007
Golden coloured with a lacy white head. Aroma was of fruits like peaches, apricots and melon. The flavour was of peach and not much else, although this wasnt overpowering like the ginger in Blandford Fly. Alright as a summer drink.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2007
Its a golden beer with a nice head. The peach is very dominating in both aroma and flavour. towards the end I also find notes of flower and melon and a very light bitterness. Peach is the last impression.
