MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Bottle. Pours a thickish orange/dark amber with a small head and heavy aromas of malt, grain dust and dark honey. Flavor is very sweet... apple juice concentrate, honey, dough... Not much else going on that I’m inclined to comment on, but I like this one.

glennmastrange (2247) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Bottle. Moderate straw for the malt, herbs for the hops and musty for the yeast, with hints of cola, paper and a bit of spice. Head is small, frothy/fizzy, slightly off-white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling with dense fine bubbles, clear amber/orange. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation and a fairly dry finish. It doesn’t have the sweetness I expected from a Vienna, but it still a pretty good drinking beer.

Dezzilu (226) - Whitmore Lake, Michigan, USA - SEP 19, 2010
Poured a nice copper color with wispy white head. Aroma was mild, but contained hints of brown sugar. In the mouth the mildness continues however the sweetness showed in the aftertaste. Overall, more than just a ho-hum beer from a company with great marketing.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2010
(Sample Date: 9/3/2010 Source:Other) Pint at Bottoms Up Pizza. Aroma is non-existent other than a bit of citrusy hops. Clear amber copper with no head. Very sweet. Clean with a light citrus hop character. Kind of a pale ale but maybe on a lager yeast and seems very under attenuated.

jmulv (336) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Medium bodied, big on the malts, grainy taste as well. Tastes a bit watery as well. Not their best effort.

mar (4826) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2010
deep amber with a ring of cream froth. bready malts, sweet caramel, slight hops, more caramel. decent palate, caramel, bread, super sweet finish, light bitterness.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Fairly uninteresting and uninspiring. A boring malt character leads to a grainy astringent sharpness and further notes of blah. Thin palate with a clean finish.

BREWMUSKCLES (2227) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2010
one has a few different options when searching for a fall weather beer and, often times, the types of beer available will fit the Autumn season of wane ie preparation for winter. hex is a particularly enjoyable brew in my mind because it is frothy and a bit foamy with a hop profile like soap and a bark like taste and finish that is appropriate and not sweet and malty. i enjoy this beer because it is satisfying and a bit magical in its difference without being contrived. the carbonation is tight and vibrant which in my mind has a lot to do with the overall mistique of beer. and the brew seems so very appropriate yet somehow optimistic as we think it may very well appear for us again next year. you experience, you learn appreciation! ont he days when your not overly concerned about the kids and the house sit back with this on the porch and go ahead take one drag on a good cigar, and fortify witht this Magi Hex, then get back to work.

On tap at Bottoms Up on 09/03/2010. Very clear golden body with a small white head. Sweet floral hop aroma on a pale malt background. Somewhat grainy floral hop flavor on a pale malt background. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

mackus2 (156) - Edison, New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours an amber mahogany with a fluffy two-finger head that fizzles to a little white ring. Nose is nutty and maybe a little malty. Medium body but not too much flavor- nuts, malts, an itty bit of spice, but really just kind of watered down. Finish gives way to a little bit of hops and sweet malts. Definitely good for the style, but it’s just not really my style.
