Pours a clear golden yellow. With a foamy white head. Aroma of pale malt and noble hops. Taste is sweet and spicy up front. Finishes on the citrusy bitter side. Alcohol content is nicely masked. Not my favorite but good.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice imperial pils. Aroma was so so. A distinct hoppiness with a hint of grain. Pour was a cloudy murky light gold with a two finger white head. Taste was nice and hoppy. Creamy mouth feel with sweet grains and light malt playing off the slightly bitter hoppiness. The carbonation is light, which was a disappointment, but the sweet and bitter battle of the flavors made up for it. Nice beer for what it is.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
750 cc from Capone’s. Pours dark straw colored with 2-finger white head that laces well. Nose is earthy tart fruit, hopcitrus, caro syrup. Tastes sweet, with notes of orange marmalade, spicy peppery notes, and hopcitrus. A bit cloying as it warms, this one is a bit muddled and non-cohesive.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On draft at Pony with Andy, Streets, James, Annie. Yellow-gold pour, not much of an aroma at all. Doesn’t taste that bad at first (kind of sweet if not indistinguishable), but this leads into a really overly dry and charred sort of finish. Finishes so poorly that I actually feel like I just ate dried/burnt leaves.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at pony bar. Pours a clear yellow with white head. Aroma is light pils and sweet grass. Mouthfeel is medium with straight grass and booze. God damnit, magic hat! Hadnt had a MH in a long time and this doesn’t make me want to try another one any time soon.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Starts out with sweet then goes to a lasting but warm bitterness pretty fast.Very subtle citrus and pine flavors. Not the most complex Pils flavorwise but overall a good beer. I recommend.
