A: The beer is clear golden yellow in color and poured with a finger high head that quickly dies down. A light to moderate amount of carbonation is visible.
S: There is a moderate aroma of apricots in the nose along with some notes of pale malts.
T: Like the smell, the taste is rather fruity with flavors of apricots but isn't completely overpowering or overly sweet. The hops contribute a faint amount of bitterness to the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied and a bit watery on the palate. The beer is very smooth and has a clean finish.
D: The beer is very easy to drink; I would consider having this beer again from time to time because of its unique flavor.

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.
