Bottle as shown. Pours a clear copper with a small frothy white head that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a wet doughy malt and caramel. Thin mouthfeel with a toasty malt and caramel with a nice earthy finish. Easy to drink, a decent vienna from Magic Hat.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The definition of a tick, to be honest. Orangey copper, decent sized beige head. Caramel, lightly spicy aroma. Flavor is caramel and toast, maybe some light fruit notes, maybe some light spicy notes. Not horrible, but I couldn’t wait to get to the next beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Bigelo’s Bistro. A medium brown with an off white soapy head that quickly dissipates. Not a bad beer at all. Nice fruit, spices that include pepper and cinnamon, and fairly rich malts. I had it with a spicy pizza which did not give the beer a fair chance. Still, it came through as a nice beer.
