COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stop and smell the petals. Pistil is a summer beer unlike any other, brewed with a combination of dandelion petals, Pale and Acidulated malts, flaked oats, and Apollo and Northern Brewer hops that results in a one-of-a-kind beer with a slightly sour acidity and a smooth malt body. Perfect for taking down deep thirst.

12 oz. Mostly clear orange-amber body with a smattering of bubbles. Mild nose of citrus and toast. Taste is a bit bolder with crisp citrus and fresh cut grass bolstered by some honey toasted cereal. Light body is crisp and tingly with carbonation and hops. Nice change-up for a summer session pale ale. -Fish!

Bottle from Fresh Market. Yellow pour with huge white head (tons of carbonation) and pillowy carbonation. Aroma is faint grain and lemon. Tastes are cereal and floral. Not much happening, but generally pleasant overall.

Hey wow, its a Magic Hat beer that I like and not just like but maybe even love. Refreshing herbaceous nose with a good dose of citrus, not sure how much was dandelion there and how much was hops. Malts were soft, biscuity, semi-dry. More hebal citrus in the flavor, snappy, clean, very refreshing. Light hazy golden with a large foamy head.

Ed5388 (2030) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy light yellow with a finger of fizzy white head. Aroma is grassy light floral smell with a bitter characteristic. Taste of light malts, wheat, and a bitterness from hop and the dandelions.

DrSilverworm (6278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2013
12oz bottle, from Party Source. Shared with caterwaul. Mostly clear dandelion yellow color. More hazy with particles in the last pour.. Thin white head. Little loose lace, but good head retention. Definitely a more floral nose. Bready malt base. Lighter body, smooth, lighter carbonation - easy drinking, light bitter, more sweet, some light orange-citrus zest. Nice, zesty, floral golden. Drinkable and refreshing.

This pours a semi-clear, golden yellow color with a thin, white head. The aroma has a lot of lemon citrus to it. The taste is thin, light, and very floral/fruity. Overall it’s not the greatest beer Magic Hat makes, but at least this will be an easy drinking beer for those hot summer days.

Ratman197 (9652) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 1, 2013
Bottle poured a clear yellow with a small lingering white head. Aromas of bread, straw, light citrus and light yeast. palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, citrus and a hint of straw with a smooth finish. Not bad just boring, I’d rather drink a well made Pale Ale.

AbbeyRoade (299) - Missouri, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Not much of an aroma other than a generalized, light fruitiness. A bit of carbonation. Light yellow color. Taste is of mild dandelion, with hops and decent bitterness. Not my favorite, but a decent and crisp unique beer nonetheless.

Clear light golden with a slight chill haze, under an unstable rocky white head. Aroma is floral hoppy but not too strong..definitely smells like a 4.5% beer, with quiet dandelion notes and a little pale ale malt body. Flavor is nice and crisp with a surprising amount of bitterness (good thing), coming with more of that pale malt backbone and crisp floral and grassy hops. Honestly if it weren’t for the slight bit of dandelion on the nose, I would confuse this for a Sierra Nevada Pale. Drinkable body with a low-abv-ipa bitterness throughout.
