12oz bottle poured into pilsner glass. Best by date Jan 31 2012 which was about a week ago.
Aroma: earthy smell, slightly metallic. somewhat skunky. it doesnt smell like fresh fruit. possibly spoiled fruit. little bit of alcohol smell.
Appearance: copperish brown color and poured extremly clear. hardly any head that faded almost instantly. very few bubbles
Taste: sweet and a bit fruity. could be pear. sour aftertaste with just a hint of bitter.
Palate: light body but a thick texture. average carbonation. and a short bitter/sour aftertaste
Overall: Had this once before on draft and remembered liking it but didn’t really do much for me this time. Wont be buying this one again. RPKLove (108) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 2, 2010
Aroma of fruit, mostly pear. Pours a yellowy orange, a cross between the sun and a run of the mill lager. The flavor of fruit is very light and after a few sips its more like drinking a crisp decent lager. FridgRaider (108) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2006
Not the most drinkable Magic Hat that I had. Like to try it again, might have had a bad batch. UofFkid (108) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Bottle. Light amber pour w/ very little lacing. Hints of fruit, but not fruity! I enjoyed this offering, nice session beer. broozer81 (107) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 23, 2010

Bottle. Smells of apricots and oranges. Pours clean with no head; slightly translucent light orange color. Tastes fruity with a little space. It does a lot of good things but together they don’t add up to a good beer. Motobashi (107) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
3/4 pint bottle. Poured a clear golden, Actve carbonation with a half finger white head that remained throughout. Heavy lacing. Nice fruity aroma. Sweet apricot flavour. No real bitterness. Minimal aftertaste. I really enjoyed this one. Would pair nicely with fish or a pasta. yemntftb (106) - USA - JUN 23, 2006
Bottle/Draft. Amber with alittle yellowish color. Not much of a head, and tastes way too sweet for me. Apricots and peaches are very evident, and I don’t like this combination at all. caresville (106) - Vernon, New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2009
its funny that this is pretty much there flagship beer and they have so many better beers that they either discontinue or that are just seasonal. its an ale but its fruity at the same time. it doesnt knock your over with any tastes but it doesnt bore you to death either. i had a pint last night at applebees, i always have a hard time describing this beer. just go drink it, but try some of magic hat’s other beers. this one one is average though.
