COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dream Machine, an India Pale Lager or IPL, is a melding of varied visions of an India Pale Ale and an Amber Lager. Once poured, its light copper color delights the eyes and a citrusy hop aroma flows through the nose. Upon first sip, a smooth hop bitterness reveals itself - fresh, bold and slightly spicy - before subtle hints of mild maltiness appear. A big hop bite and a crisp, clean lager finish combine for a beautifully balanced beer. Take Dream Machine for a spin and let your reverie begin.

Purchased at the Westwood Krogers in Cincinnati, Ohio, as part of the 2014 Magic Hat Summer Scene seasonal twelve pack - Alright, this copper hued brew flowed out with a hoppy aroma and decent lacing, with a very pleasant, balanced taste that reminds me of Moerlein’s OTR.

One of the better magic hats I've had. Not great but good. Poured from draft at Shortys in NY. Bitter Carmel and malty aroma. Taste is the same. Pretty hoppy. I changed my mind. Very average.

Bottle - Pours a deep golden with a average white head. Nice aromas of citrus. Good mouth feel. Tastes like a IPL, malty with hoppy citrus notes and a dry finish. Enjoyable.

Thanks to iNBe. Quite fruity for a lager which really works in this beers favor as the amount of hops necessitates it. Serving: Bottle

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Light spicy hops, creamy grainy malts, and a light sweetness. Not bad.

Look: pours dark golden color almost amber. White head. Very slight haze. Smell: pine. Grass. Sweet fruit. Oranges. Lemons. Flower. Taste: lemons. Caramel. Citrus fruit. Tangerines. Feel: feel is like a lager, but tastes like an IPA. Overall: ok beer. Good attempt. But just didn't quite pull it off with the flavor. Would like to see more tropical hops than citrus.

Where and how: bottle 355 ml
Aroma malty, crystal malts as base to aromatic herbal hops.
Appearance :
Top: mid sized off white cap. Fizzy mid
Base: clear amber.
Palate : chalky, mid bodied, short burst of carbonation.
Taste: not too intense. Front of caramel with candy like base. On edges herbal hop feel.
other notes more of new wave stronger American amber lager than Polish Mocne.

teemoney (89) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Poured from bottle into tulip glass. Hazy reddish-yellow, with thin white fizzy head that almost completely disappears. Smell is all lager yeast. Contrary to the scent, the taste is mostly bitter hops, with maybe some bread/ yeast in the background. Feel is smooth, with a little carbonated fizziness. Overall, really not bad. Definitely different. Probably not something I would buy again, though.
