Haystack yellow topped by a cream colored crown of creaminess that had better texture than the heads on 99% of the world's light lagers. The foam, which never completely disappeared, left feathery rings of lace indicating each mouthful.
This might be a good place to mention that this offering is RB's Heartland Light Lager with the addition of peach juice concentrate. The nose was nicely fruity, though I might have had trouble coming up with peach if blinded. It was too subtley peachy and too subtle overall to be worthy of the next highest score.
Peach Beer is good beer for two reasons. First, Heartland Light Lager is a more than solid version of the style. Second, the peach flavor was just right. Those of you expecting an explosion of peachiness will probably be disappointed. Those of us who like quality fruit beer, but aren't thrilled with peaches, will be happy.
As well as adding flavor, the peach nectar added a certain amount of sweetness. A lower drinkability score was a consideration, but the beer was just too damn good and it stood up to my lunch like a champ. The flavor profile was appropriately simple and clean: fresh cereal grains and sweet, ripe peaches.
The mouthfeel was also helped by the fruit juice concentrate. The added sugars gave it a little fullness (relatively speaking), with a slightly sticky-slick finish. Lightly sparkly bubbles worked out well.
The straightforwardly named Peach Beer is the best light fruit lager that I've ever had. That isn't surprising since Heartland Light Lager is the best light lager that I've ever had. Bottom line: no pits, just peaches.
