3.19/5 rDev -5.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3
Pours a crystal clear golden straw color with an initial 2 finger eggshell white head that fades fast to a ring. Spotty lacing.
Doesn't really smell like a pale ale, and I'm wondering why they bill it as such on the bottle. I think the bros got it right labeling this a fruit beer. Anyway, pale malt mixes with some peach and apricot in the nose, with a slight fruity hop presence. Pretty nice.
Not too much going on in the taste though. Some slight peach/apricot flavor up front gives way to pale malt, grain, and finishes with a little earthy hops. Pleasant enough flavor but very subdued.
Lively carbonation throughout, light bodied. Easy drinking.
This was one of my go-to beers when I first got into craft years ago, but having had so many other amazing beers since then, this brew just doesn't really stand up to what else is out there. An enjoyable session beer, but definitely not something I would go out of my way to find.

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
