16oz glass at Beer Revolution YEGDT. The Gas Lamp line of brews are made for the hubris-thick 'Calgary's Best Pubs' chain of faux-Irish drinking holes in Cowtown - glad Beer Rev were able to swipe a keg for we northerners, at least I don't have to make that trek for this particular offering.

This beer appears a cloudy, medium tarnished golden straw colour, with one finger of puffy and loosely foamy off-white head, which leaves a bit of random remote islet lace around the glass as it quickly abates.

It smells of weak, somewhat gritty wheat grain, faint orchard fruit, one that may or may not be anywhere in the ballpark of apricot, ethereal earthy spice, and tame leafy, weedy hops. The taste is a bit more forthcoming with the apricot, however, it manifests in the bitter, kind of acrid form - little summertime fruitiness here, folks - with a rather more interesting grainy pale wheatiness, muddled spice (though surely there's some coriander and white pepper in there), a weirdly muffled squeezed orange character, and a hint of earthy, leafy hops.

The carbonation is average in its plain frothiness, the body medium-light in weight, and generally smooth, with a touch of airy creaminess. It finishes off-dry, the strangely indecipherable fruitiness, fading spice, and comparatively sturdy wheat malt all carrying on like a well-fueled wedding.

Not a bad beer, but hardly one worthy of trotting out the 'apricot' descriptive moniker. Plain, yet wheaty, spicy, and citrusy (see previous comments re: fruit) - I would have been less critical if they had out and out deemed this a witbier, to which it bears at least a modicum of resemblance.
