3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very slightly hazy golden coloured body with a super, nine plus centimetre thick off-white head that fades nicely. Aroma of grass, hay, yeast, bread, alcohol, oranges and a twinge of metal. Medium to Full-bodied; Deep malty flavour with a ton of alcohol noticeable, a lot of hay, grass, herbal and barnyardie qualities with a pungent yeast kick and a little sugar at the end. Aftertaste shows a nice complex flavour, especially for the style, with perhaps too much alcohol noticeable, but some nice grassy notes and a bit of sweetness too. Overall, a nice beer and one from Magic Hat that I was actually kind of looking forward to sample. Buy and try it if you can find it, but this was the only time I saw the bottle. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 22-April-2012 for US$8.65 sampled at home in Washington on 02-October-2012.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cheap 750ml from State Line, Elkton, MD. Pour looks fairly average, deep hazy golden with a raucous carbonation. Nose is faded bready malts and what seems like hastily dumped in grass. Mouthfeel overly prickly, a touch of heat. Grainy taste everywhere, with ill-conceived hops like a bad side dish or something. Not so good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 750 ml bottle from State Line, 7/31/12, Rating # 2300
Aroma: The nose has some fruit, pilsner malts, grass, earth, and floral notes
Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a frothy white head and heavy lace
Flavor: Tastes medium-plus sweet, similar to the nose, with a light hops/light hot malt finish
Palate: Itís medium-plus bodied, has a smooth, creamy, slightly sticky feel, and finishes mildly hot and dry
I tend to be fairly unexcited by much of what Iíve tried from Magic Hat, and while this wasnít incredible, I think itís a top Magic Hat offering for me. You know that typical MH taste? I didnít get much of that here, so thatís nice... While this still wasnít a great beer, itís good to see a generally mediocre brewery showing a little bit of improvement. Thatís about as complimentary as I can get on this one.
