ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2012
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
Overall Impression: 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.

The flavor is sweet malt, raisin and dark molasses and fig, and sweet alcohol, with a bitter grassy finish. Medium carbonation and body. Pretty good. [1058]

Grassy nose and flavor is sweet grapefruit and peach but finish is lingering bitter hops. Higher ABV is hidden. $8.29 for a caged and corked 750ml (I think, the label also has 26oz which is 769ml) bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.

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.

LinusStick (2854) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2012
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.
