Poured into a goblet.
Golden bronze crystal clear body under a minimal white head that disappears to a rim of bubbles after a few minutes.
Smells like a amber lager to me. Light hop-like notes play on top of generic grain aromas.
The flavors are subtle, but I believe I taste some mild crackery grains, and a floral bitterness. There is a bit of a twang in the aftertaste that I can't quite put my finger on.
The mouthfeel is average in body and carbonation. Good overall balance.
Conclusion: Not terribly remarkable, but not bad in any way. I am not sure what I am tasting in this beer, maybe carrots.

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.
