3.55/5 rDev +4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
Appearance: Clear, yellow body with a small, fizzy, white head. Some splotchy lacing on the way down.
Smell: Light pale malt scent with some citrus and yes, even some apricot.
Taste: More of that light pale maltiness, somewhat grainy, and with a medium level of sweetness. Fruity citrus and apricot arrive simultaneously. Medium hop bitterness. Watery, lightly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. A tad watery.
Drinkability: The ladies flanking me at the bar really dug it. A true gulper, if only to get to the next beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Haters gonna hate. I feel like this beer is underrated on here because it has three characteristics that people on BA tend to dislike: it's a fruit beer, it's mass distributed, and it's made by Magic Hat. While not an amazing beer, it's certainly better than average. The point of rating beers on BA is to consider a beer within its own genre...and as far as fruit beers are concerned, I think this one is damn good. If you don't like fruit beers, it should be no surprise to you that you won't like this one. If you think it's uncool to drink Magic Hat, either because it's mass distributed or because of the West 6th thing...then don't drink it. Anyway, now that I'm down off my soapbox, the flavor of this is rich, and the apricots definitely come through, refreshing pretty much any time of year. The color has an inviting orangish hue which I find very appealing. Mouthfeel isn't awesome, a little heavy on the carbonation. Overall, a pretty good beer.
