gegwilson (3525) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Cask in Einsteins in Chesterfield. Light golden colour rather than the advertised amber, with a frothy off white head. Very fruity apricot aroma. The taste also has a lot of apricot juice. The underlying flavour is slightly thin and metallic. Not my thing, but OK.

jjsint (2592) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2016
Handpull cask at the Silk Mill Ale & Cider House, Derby. Its advertised as an amber ale but its actually light gold, hazy with a small white head. Floral and astringent scent with a suggestion of hard citrus and talcum powder. Initial sweet taste, with note than a hint of apricot, finishes with a dry bitter-sourness. Complex compared to other beers of its type, and certainly well-made, but doesnt quite float my boat.

Towey1989 (2123) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2016 Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of apricot, some peach, mango, slight pale malts and subtle floral hops. Taste of apricot, peach, subtle mango, some pale malts and slight floral hops. Light bodied and an oily texture. A dry, fruity hop bitterness in the finish. Refreshing and fruity but average overall.

Rune (11653) - Troms, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2015
500ml bottle bought at KellenTay Beers in Derby. Loose white head to a shiny golden body. Fresh apricot on the nose. Flavoured with apricot and grass hops. Mid-sweet hoppy ending. Soft in the mouth. Very much on an ordinary level (Sunday session at the hotel room 22.02.2015).

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2014
Cask gravity at the St Albans Beer Festival 2012. Poured a very hazy orange, with a scummy white head. Aroma of apricots, citrus and sherbet. Fruity flavours, with some brown sugar and toasted malt. Finish was toffee, tinned fruit and brown bread.

jamesie1857 (1971) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2013
On cask at Three Tuns, Dronfield - Much hyped by my friends whod had this the night before, so was looking forward to it. Big nose of apricots dominate this, the body looks okay - a bit hazy, but nothing disturbing - and the head laced all the way down. The sweetness of the beer was apparent early on, the apricots again coming through, but leaving the bitterness of a sourer fruit. Unusual, and got a bit fed up of it towards the end....

SarkyNorthener (4229) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2012
Bottle, Pale gold hazy beer, no head. Aroma of what may be apricots, just sweeter. Taste is sour fruit, not sure what again could be apricots. Carbonated lager like on the palate. A good beer reminiscent of a belgian.
