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.

ElGaucho (2240) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2013
Bottle. Aroma fairly nondescript with grassy notes. Hazy yellow gold with huge white head. Light with a more interesting flavor that most 4.5% ABV beers.

notalush (4994) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2013
Mostly clear gold, with a thick, frothy, well-sustained lace - nose of clean, pale maltiness, light tartness, subtle herbal notes, and the faintest hint of the dandelion - light bodied - nice, soft, frothy carbonation in the mouth - very clean, with no obvious flaws - lightly tart/acidic and floral up front - lightly bitter middle, with the dandelion mildly evident - mild sweetness pops up momentarily before a crisp, lightly tart, quenching finish - quite refreshing, and a nice surprise from Magic Hat.

decaturstevo (5213) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 5, 2013
Yellow pour with foamy white head. Aroma is light sour and skunk. Light dry malt and a light sour malt finish. Not much bitter. Light bodied and fizzy. Flavor is not skunky so maybe it’s my nose,

slatermcs (61) - - APR 5, 2013
Aroma of floral hops. Light head, no lacing visible. Slightly acidic taste with light hop bitterness. Like most Magic Hat products, I was wanting for more flavor and substance. Light on flavor, but drinkable

FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2013
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!

DialSquare (2912) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2013
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.

PhillyBeer2112 (2544) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2013
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 (2236) - 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 (6955) - 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.
