Drake (11116) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2012
12 ounce bottle from the summer sampler. And somehow Magic Hat gets to be my 5200th rating. How’d that happen? Pours an almost murky orange color with a thin white head. Poor head retention. Aroma of wheat and berry-flavored Life Savors. The taste is wheat, citrus, banana, berries. Medium bodied and highly carbonated. I kinda like this beer, but that doesn’t mean its good.
