Golden amber, half a finger of head that disappears to nothing. Peaches and nectarines are overwhelming in both aroma and taste. Decent mouthfeel.

Regrettably this beer doesn't really work; the flavour is too sweet for starters, but more to the point it is too artificial. It's as if someone has taken a regular pale ale and added fruit cordial to it. Unfortunately I've had similar feelings about other Badger beers: overwhelmed by one, specific artificial flavour.

Wonderfully peachy flavors. My review may be tainted for nostalgia from drinking this on many a summer night.

A – Golden amber in colour this one claims to be peachy and have a hint of melon.
S – As soon as you crack the bottle the smell of peach and nectarine is very obvious. Slight smell of charred wood.
T – The taste of peach follows through when you drink it however the melon is only the slightest hint and may well be lost on many a pallet. What you are not told to expect is the nice after taste that comes from the malted barley that has made its way in there. On the sniff you might detect a hint of charred wood similar to a ‘lap sang Souchong’ and this last flavour teases the tongue when you drink making you wonder if you taste it at all, but it is most definitely there.
MF – Buttery and a little oily but I was actually able to handle this quite well although it would not be a feel I like.
O – Badger beers are a good starting point for anyone wanting to get into tasting and the fun to be had there, mainly because they give a very concise explanation of what to expect from the beer on the back of the bottle. A little fruity for my taste and not my first choice from the Badger range this is still a fine beer and a great drink with dessert or on a cold day.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Bottle: clear bottle (booo!) with okay label. The Badger is cute.

Appearance: looks like dark pee after someone hasn't had enough water. However, a fantastic head, nice and thick with great lacing.

Aroma: quite a strong yet pleasant peach aroma, quite sweet.

Taste: the peach is there, with some light watermelon. Doesn't taste like a fruit beer though, more a flavoured pilsener.

Aftertaste: reasonably buttery in feel, however the body is quite watery with a slight oiliness.

Mouth feel: reasonably buttery in feel, however the body is quite watery with a slight oiliness.

Overall: not a bad beer, but neither is it great. Kind of tastes like a peach cider. Seems reasonably well made, but too sweet for me. And at AU$105+ for an equivalent case of 24 x 330mL bottles, I think I'll leave this one alone.

Poured a nice and white head. Golden amber color. Very low carbonation with tiny bubbles.
Clear peach aroma, some cantaloupe as well.
Taste follows aroma, very peachy and sweet. Mild bitterness with a watery ending. I believe this fruity combination would demand more carbonation and something zesty to make it more pleasant.
