This apricot ale is a bit artificial. Tastes of iron. A sweet taste, but not like beer. More like soda.

Umm... I liked this beer in high school -- that should tell the whole story. Interesting beer to show someone who doesn’t think you can add apricot to a beer. Just don’t have them expect it to taste that good. No hops to speak of, relatively light (drinkable), reminded me of a beer-spritzer.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2005 Good beer. Sampled this at Coventry. Very refreshing, could drink 10 of these on a hot day. Has a nice hoppy undertone with apricot citrus accents. Not very sweet, which is why I liked it. Nice crisp hoppy aftertaste. Good sipping or pounding.
I changed my mind. This is pretty bad.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy, GregClow and tupalev - out of 2005 Magic Hat 12-pack. Poured clear light copper with a thin wispy white head. Aroma of vegetal malt, a tad uriney, with notes of wet newspaper-wrapped dog and very slight stale hops. Taste hit me immediately of microwave "buttered" popcorn, which was weird to say the least. Flat and thin mouthfeel. As I finished my sample I decided that overall I didn’t loathe it as much in toto as each of the parts would lead me to think.

Thick white head, which slowly diminishes, weak hoppy aroma. Very strong wheat taste, with a light wheat aftertaste

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2007 BOTTLE: Another "fruit flavored" beer. What can I say? Not as undrinkable as Sam’s Cranberry Lambic. A nothing special beer made weird and therefore "special" by the addition of flavors that make it taste like a beer aperatif. But that’s my take. If you appreciate this category, please email me. I have five more bottles that I’d gladly ship for the cost of postage. I hate to dump overpriced, err.. premium priced beer.BUY AGAIN? No

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear light orange body with bold yellow hues. Thin head fades quickly, I think it was white, though it dissapeared so fast I’ll never be sure. Thin linear lacing. Ugly. Aroma is of lightly toasted malts. Very fruity as well, with notes of apricot puree and a little peach. This also has an awful odor I’d associate with a dirty bathroom. Additions of cereal grains and a slight hoppy bitterness that grows more pronounced near the finish. Too acidic. Too much carbonation, though it couldn’t even sustain the diminutive head. Finishes cloying, then dries out a touch. Palate is too bubbly. A pathetic beer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Gillette Stadium. Clear, medium dark gold body. Thin, foamy white film for a head. Spider-web like lacing of micro-bubbles. The aroma is very floral, with honey, indistinguishable light fruits, and sweet, cheap smelling malts. The flavor can only be described as an overly sweet cluster of mystery fruits, pale malts, and adjuncts with minimal hop bitterness. The body is on the light side of medium, with a light syrupy profile that does not settle well. This beer is like a science experiment gone wrong. Not recommended.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very light orange color, no head, foamy whtie edges. This one sinks. Smells like it will taste like seltzer water. Other beers that smell like this I haven’t liked.
What I expected. No real flavor at all. This one shoud remain cloaked in secrecy. This is not a beer that I ever want to drink again.
