look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pint bottle into an Imperial pint glass

A - Crystal clear gold with a short, white head that laces the glass.

S - An odd, interesting fruity smell with a slight spiciness on warming up a bit.

T - Very apricotty and a hint of malt.

M - Big in the mouth without overwhelming or cloying.

O - Didn't care much for it the first time. Must've been an odd bottle. This one was very enjoyable. Would love to taste a bit more malt, though- it's more fruit forward than I'd like. Yet again, the old brewery at Tadcaster refuses to disappoint.
