3.35/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Pouring this at room temperature into my trusty goblet, I quickly got the aroma almost before I poured it from the bottle. I caught hints of vanilla w/ apricot malts, and maybe some sour grapes in there. I expected a hoppy aroma but that is not what I got here. it was overpowered mainly by the apricot (fruity) scents.
however, it was a nice coppery color and left a good 3/4" fluffy, creamy head that lasted for a few minutes before tasting, which was pretty cool. It also showed some nice cascading, which I also enjoy watching!
Upon tasting it, the apricots came out right away, but I also tasted almost a sour grapieness coming out as well, along with some hints of vanilla tones punching through lightly. Up front the fruit destroyed any other flavors, but the light hops came through a little at the end of the swallow.
Mouthfeel was very thin, crisp, w/ bursts of fruity flavors but didn't hang on very long throughout. Nice carbonation, but not much to write home and tell mom about.
Overall, this is just another example of how Magic Hats cool as hell labels market a pretty average beer.

Pours out to a nice creamy white head that laces the glass a bit. Color is a coppery gold. Aroma is much like Pyramid apricot minus the sharp wheat. Flavor is mild and fruity with some pale and crystal malts shining through and balanced to a crisp finish. No discernible hop character. Mouthfeel is pleasant and CO2 is just right. Overall a solid brew that pleases.

3.25/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Golden yellow color, short white head, not much lacing
Smell: Apricots and biscuity malt
Taste: Apricot, biscuit, light hops and bitterness
Mouthfeel: Light body, good carbonation
Overall: This used to be a favorite of mine, and probably would be a preferred choice if there isn't good selection, but it doesn't do much for me anymore.
Serving type: on-tap
