On-tap at O.H.S.O. Brewing during brunch, on to the beer:

This is one pale yellow beer. The head goes away quickly, leaving you to wonder if we're looking at a fruit ale or cheap lager. The aroma bring hopes up, as the wonderful sweet smell of peaches is easy to spot. That's all is needed.

Not as succulent in the taste as the aroma, the peaches are mild in flavor and come out of the light blonde ale base. Somewhat grainy at the base, with the peach popping out. With an alcohol level barely above four percent, it's no surprise that it is light bodied and paired with a somewhat crisp bite of carbonation.

Decent fruit beer that's made for lighter occasions. French toast isn't one of them.

After work this past summer, my coworkers and I would go to the Four Peaks' Brew Pub in Scottsdale and enjoy a beer afterwork.
Its usually dark by the time we get there, but the beer appears to have a nice light color, with a very minimal head.
The smell is of faint almost ripened peaches. The taste has a slight peach smell, but not overly fruity. This beer is very drinkable and not a slow drinker by any means. It is a great summer brew and finishes wonderfully.

Poured a clear amber with no head. It looked like most fruit beers I've had. Scents of peach and slight malt. Flavor is mostly peach, but good, fresh, real peach, with a bit of malt in the background. Refreshing, fruity, but with enough beer flavor. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. It's a pretty good fruit beer, dominated by fruit, which I usually don't care much for, but the fruit is good fruit and doesn't carry the artificial feel of say, Sea Dog Apricot.

Cloudy blonde in color with a soft white head that fades to nothing but a collar and a bride of Frankenstien streak of foam up the side of the glass. The vertical streak meanders as the beer level gets lower and lower.

The smell is a dominating peach puree/ jam smell. Soft and floral with a slight brewed twinge that reminds me of a fruit infused iced tea. Not much past the peach nose.

Taste is a lot like the smell but with a moderate malt in the background. Its not a perfume "fake" peach flavor which is very enjoyable because I've had other fruity beers that taste like the cosmetic counter at Sears. This one does not. There is also a nice pilsner like spice to the hop profile but it is real subtle. A sweet drying feel to the aftertaste lasts with a peachiness that is strangely refreshing.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth carbonation yields an easy to drink beer. Soft and slick it goes down easy and is good for the ladies in your life who aren't hop inclined. I actually don't mind this beer at all. It is refreshing and has a clean fresh peach flavor that isn't over sweet and doesn't taste chemically enhanced.

a: light honey.. clear body.. just a thin cap for a head. carbonation sticking to walls on glass.

s: peach, but not overly peachy. some wheat & pale malts underly.. smells great in the summer heat.

t: peach syrup upfront. reminds me of a white peach with that slight slight bitterness.. backend has more peach with some pale malts.. quite refreshing.

mf: light-medium body with an almost creamy body.. goes down too easy!

o: i like it surprisingly.. great to slug down in the heat.
