Poured a clear amber color with a decent off white head. Aroma is of floral, caramel, toast, toast, nuts, and a faint lemon. Taste is very malty and sweet with a touch of bitterness. Has an almost maple syrup taste to me and too sweet.

Magic Hat claims this beer is a combination of the altbier and marzen styles.Pours a clear, dark gold color, with a three finger head. Strong malt and roasted notes in the aroma. I don’t get hops in the aroma but they are definitely there in the taste, the bitterness standing up to the malt. I don’t get caramel in the palate, probably because of the hop bitterness. This beer most resembles the Blue Point Oktoberfest I reviewed previously. I bit of a thicker mouthfeel however.

Had both bottled and draft varieties - your typical Marzen. Caramel, chocolate and coffee with a nice hop balance.

Soft initial taste that does not get much stronger as an octoberfest-style beer. Has a bit of a watery back-end taste.

A light copper color without much head. Light caramel, wheat and spiced malts in the smell. Taste is the same. Magic Hat beers are always too sweet for me.

Magic Hat Hex has a medium, fluffy, off-white head, a slightly hazy, copper appearance with lots of streaming bubbles, and some lacing on the glass. The aroma is of medium-roasted, sweet, fruity barley malt and bread crust. Taste is of roasted malt, wood, bread crust, sweetness, and it has a nice underlying hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is light to medium, and Magic Hat Hex finishes mostly dry, clean, and very refreshing. This beer is super sessionable, and I rate it as being very good. Get some! RJT

Nice golden amber color. Peppery taste slightly bitter. It is drinkable, but is an unremarkable beer.
