A- lots and lots of head. not to great head.
S- Smells lots of Belgium yeast some apricot, almost no hops. Smells a bit like vegetables and it is reminding me much of Coors.
T- Really light, almost water on the tongue, it has some apricot, refreshing this might be better if it was a hef, does not really stand up as a pale. It does have some lemon zess at the end.
M- Its smooth, light, and a bit refreshing. This is probably served best very cold on a hot summer day.
O- I was told to look out for this my by girl's girlfriend. Finally found it in the liqueur store across the street. This beer far as I know is only found on the east coast, I first saw it on tap in Austin a week before in my liqueur store. Overall this is a chick beer, or someone who wants something more than Coors. I'd drink this on a Hot summer day no problem, but overall its a beer with little flavor and is styled in smoothness and softness.

(no freshness info - poured into a British pint glass)
A: relatively-clear, sunny, yellow-amber colored liquid with a mild haze... keeps a < finger-width head for a minute... head falls, leaves a thin, frothy cap which holds till the end... spits of lace here and there
S: huge, extract-fruity aroma - not too far off from a peach Jolly Rancher mixed with a cough drop... no hops (unless the Cascade is lending some highlights to the candy-fruitiness), kinda tough to tell what impact the yeast has... wee bit floral
T: certainly a British bitter (or cream ale) base with some minerally esters and a decent bit of hop bitterness floating beneath the haze of somewhat white wine fruitiness... not nearly as sweet as the aroma suggests - actually, it finishes rather dry despite a swipe of light crystal malt up front... the bitterness gradually asserts itself more and more with each sip... I suppose the fruit flavor is a fresh apricot, having only had nasty, sulfury dried ones - could be construed as mildly peach and/or cantaloupe... dry, sort of biscuity-bready malt pacing around in the background, delicate toastiness... dandelion-like (petals and stem) aftertaste
M: smooth-ish, mildly frothy-creamy flow... flash of soft sizzle at the back of the palate... very easy to knock back... blanket-soft and dry
O: it's not all that bad a drink - I could certainly understand it being popular amongst young kids who don't enjoy the flavors of traditional ales and lagers - real beer!
