2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
