I just didn’t like this one. Maybe I’m not a fruit beer fan.

Boring and one dimensional. Tastes like a macro with some apricot flavoring added.

Bottled. Poured a medium orange/brown color with medium head. The aroma was a really nice mix of citrus and apricot. The taste was just as delicious with lemon and fruit giving way to mild hops. Just a little bite, no real carbonation, and goes down smooth. Unfortunately, the beer got much less flavorful as I drank it until it was just a waterish beer. I would order it over many other beers.

Yum- a little sweet, but still gives a nice refreshing swig. It is one of my "regulars" for the fridge.

Good IPA-style beer for people who don’t like hops that feel like pop rocks in their mouth. Nice crips, hoppy flavor. Easy drinkability. Nice, mainstream pale ale.

It was ok, not much of a taste to this one. I have been dissapointed on many of magic hat’s brews. This one was no exception.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Presentation: 12 oz. brown bottle with no freshness date. Served in a Sam Adams sensory glass.
Appearance: Healthy one and a half fingers of head that stay a while and eventually start to thin out. Swirling the glass around a bit brings it right back to life. Dark gold, very deep color, yet very clear. Leaves behind some great lacing. clings all over the glass.
Smell: Smells mainly of apricot hard candy, pretty sweet and pleasant. A bit of malt in the background as well. This is a beer after all!
Taste: Very fruity, without being overwhelming. It tastes of apricot candy, malty as well. Just a hint of hoppy bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light, refreshing, smooth, very easy to drink. Good amount of carbonation. Semi-dry and quite tart despite the fruitiness. Very pleasant all in all.
Overall: A fun and refreshing any-time brew. Interesting in the taste department, but always feels like a beer. Perfect for when you just wanna sit back, relax and have some fun drinking a cold one. You won’t be missing your go-to, ’run of the mill’ lager when you have this "not quite pale ale" by your side.

Has nice red/gold color. Major first taste is fruit. Almost sweet like note. Not much lacing on glass.

Mellow golden color, little head. Aroma is lightly fruity, but certianly not as strong as I’d expect in a pale ale. Too sweet, but I could drink it.

Obviously I did not like this beer. The aroma was reminiscent of lemongrass. A hazy gold color, a decent head, but I did not like the flavor which reminded me of green tea. As far as I was concerned, its strongest point was the palate. If had good mouth feel dispite its flavor. All in all I’d drink a lite american lager before I’d drink this again.
