A Big beer….
A Magic craft…..
Yes Magestic, not just majestic
Created with percolating, infusing and dry hopping with potent US hops, but allowing balance through deep bodied British malts and cultivating a smooth citrus backbone from Eastern European hops.

Towey1989 (966) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of resin, orange marmalade, grapefruit, toffee and subtle vanilla. Taste of orange marmalade, grapefruit, resin, toffee, subtle treacle, alcohol and maybe apple brandy. Full bodied and an oily texture. A warming, toffee finish with a resinous hop bitterness. Has a big marmalade and resinous flavour but has a full bodied, oily, toffee body which is warming and sippable. Good.

gunnar (6919) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2015
Bottle from Ales By Mail. Pours hazy deep golden with a big creamy off-white head. Weak oak aroma mixed with loaded fruity hops. Taste is hefty sweet/bitter fruity, with some marmelade up front, before mr bitter takes over the show completely, good one, but too aggresive finish for me.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle Coppers Newcastle. Huge aroma that sees lots of caramel battling with big tropical fruits. Lovely amber colour, lively on the tongue & quite a big alcoholic kick immediately noticeable, with plenty of warmth and a little burn. Quite sweet, which doesn’t detract, yet the finish has a sharp, bitter edge that brings some good balance. Excellent.

gegwilson (2389) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle in the Buxton Micro Pub. Hazy amber with a cream head. Nice pine aroma, though not overly strong. The taste is bitter and hoppy. Notes of citrus and pine with caramel backing it up. Nice but not exceptional.

Delicious- strong, heavy full bodied flavor. With a rich Carmel color. Makes you feel like your entering into a magical portal bringing you to meet the faerie queen.

The aroma matches the taste matches the appearance matches the taste. Great combo. Pair with a green apple to enhance your sensations.

GlassBrass440 (309) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 1, 2015
Pours a hazy gold with a persistent white head and good lacing. Aromas of citrus, cherry, mango, caramel, and alcohol. A little hot up front on the flavour but quickly melds into a biscuity and fruity english character reminiscent of toast with orange marmalade. Cherry flavoured medicine brings a less than pleasant mid palate but he finish rebounds with a bittersweet orange bite.
