2.58/5 rDev -23.9%
Poured in a pint glass from a bomber. Reviewed live.
A- Tiny off-white head. Little retention, no lacing to speak of. Nice semi-cloudy honey color.
S- Apricot and honey are the biggest smells I get. Not overpowering yet quite appetizing. I'm excited to drink this beer.
T- Hmm. Not as good as I was expecting. Medicinal and soapy tones overshadow the apricot and hops. Unfortunate.
M- Medium bodied with heavy carbonation. No linger.
O- The aroma is the best part of this, too bad the taste doesn't match up.

Pours a clear dark gold with one finger off white head that settles to a thickish covering. Moderate carbonation. First hit is an intense chewy toasty carmamelly malt aroma followed by peach, date, and caramel apple. The taste is browned apple and peach butter on toast. This is something different. Can't really say I like it, but after a 6 pack it kind of grew on me. Decent enough and quaffable but more or less a" meh."

12oz bottle into tumbler, no BB
Just barely hazy peach colored, with a small white head that leaves too soon for my taste, some active carb visible. After a few minutes there is no head to speak of. Stale fruit and something a bit metallic, floral tones as well. Taste starts off with low quality lager but thankfully becomes decidedly fruity, apricots front and center and some peach. Has a hint of "bad beer" aftertaste. Mouthfeel is extremely light and medium carb.
Not a bad beer, but not quite a good beer either. A good entry into beer for a non drinker featuring high drinkability and sweetness. If it didn't have hints of less than stellar beer going on in the beginning and end of the taste, it would be quite a pleasant beer.

A - The beer had a nice aroma and good carbonation. No lacing seen. A pale golden beer in the tavern lights.
S - You could smell and taste the apricot. It seemed the apricot used a concentrated source.
T - I thought they did a great job balancing the hops and malt. You could pick up the hops easily in the after taste.
M - Body was good.
O - Not a beer I would drink, not my style.
