2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
9/6/10. On tap. Orange-ish pour, almost looks like a pumpkin beer. Typical grainy smell, but loaded with soapy badness and even some sour... The flavor is bitter and grainy, turns extremely sweet, and then hints at some sort of odd chocolate touch. I wish this brewery would go away.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Billed as an "Ourtoberfest" *rollseyes*.
It pours pretty much like a typical maerzen, it has an orangeish amber body with a foamy white head. The head dissipates very quickly and without lacing.
The smell is slightly nutty, sweet, with a hint of mineral water.
The flavor is sweet, there is almost a pickle spice character to it. There is a light breadiness and hop presence.
There isn’t much going on here, a simple brew, but not in a pleasurable way.

Bottle. Pours a copper toned body with an off white head. Malty body with caramel, toffee, almond and nutty tones in general. Bittersweet nutty mild body with a hint of earth and nuts to finish. Eh.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Sweeter malty aroma, with toasty and toffee notes, and a light fruity hint. The flavor has sweet malts, toasty notes, a hint of rye, and some light hoppy bitterness. Nice.

(12oz bottle dated best by Dec 31, 2010 thanks to bu11zeye) clear orange, lingering bubbles. Nose of paper, oxidation, squash and candy corn. Taste of candy corn, alcohol, sweet pumpkin, with a well carbonated creamy finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle shared on a Royale Tuesday beer showcase. Pours a clear golden-amber color with a small, sticky white head that leaves some foam and a ring atop the beer. Aroma of sweet malts, booze, cardboard, soda water, and honey. The flavor is much the same, with some straw. Sharp, foamy carbonation provides a bite and a seltzer mouthfeel. Light-medium bodied. This would have been better smoothed out, but as is, it just isn’t that interesting.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a light amber color with a white head. The aroma is strong toffee with not too much else. The flavor is toffee, earth and dirt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Like a lot of beer from Magic Hat, the beer is average across the board.
