Donald, Colors that come to my eye want to say apricot pink, pinkish beige. I love those colors and yet rather rare in AB's. I would line them out to review again next year with hopefully, a better climate for them than this year. Just for the color, maybe some things could be overlooked. If in your eye you are not satisfied I would certainly keep it to breed with. There are other OGBs with pink breeding from the TB side which could increase the possibility of more pink. Sometime the genes do get mixed during, is it miosis, and if that happens you might get some surprise sdlgs. You have it starting so maybe you are on a roll.
Good luck, that would be wonderful, pink OGS! with or without tangerine beards.

Pink isn't a color associated much with arilbreds.  I keep looking at this
one, though, and it sure appears to have a lot of pink.  Cameo pink, but
still pink.  One of the ROSEMOHR X ESTHER, THE QUEEN seedlings that have
been fun to watch.  Nothing up to modern standards, but this clump has made
an effective garden clump this year nonetheless.  Blousy, floppy, not enough
substance but still managed to be attractive despite the wind.  And there's
the intriguing color.  I don't see how it can really be pink in the sense of
those tangerine pinks, but I can't see anything of lavender or lilac in the
color.  Orange maybe, but that wouldn't make sense either.  Just a curious
