2.17/5 rDev -36%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.5
12 ounce bottle that was part of a Magic Hat mixed pack I received in a trade, split with a friend, poured into a pint glass
A-Very light yellow, resembles a macro, miniscule 1/8 inch white head that settled immediately, not any retention and no lacing either
S-Lots of apricots, lemon, roasted barley, faint grassy hoppiness, flowers, malt, grains, blueberries, and yeast
T-Medicinal flavor I could not stand that tasted like Robotussin, strong apricot taste, small amount of hops, bready and biscuity malt, some different kinds of berries, nasty bitterness, too watered down, balanced pretty well, just not a fan of this taste, got even worse as the beer warmed
M-Dry mouthfeel to along with a funky sweetness, super thin body, taste did not last long thank goodness, not enough carbonation
D-Could not drink more than a bottle of this if that, not heavy on the stomach or high in alcohol, just not smooth and the taste is flat out funky and tiresome
Tasted more like a bad cough syrup than beer to me, would not drink this again, never had a pale ale that tastes like this, too weird, not recommended

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.
