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.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Highly carbonated in both smell and taste, lemon, light like water, less smooth, right texture, likely not drink this again

This has got to be the worst thing Magic hat has ever done. Pours a hazy seedy yellow with a ton of carbonation. Like a fizzy lifting drink. The taste is very sour, and as far as I can tell has no redeeming quality at all. The aftertaste hangs around like a trip to the dentist office. Just bad.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thin, watery, with a hint of malt, earthiness, and a vegetable quality. Very light. Disappointing overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Looks sort of light. Aroma of flowers and pale malts and floral hops. Flavor the same, but there are a lot more flowers in the nose. Average texture. A pretty interesting beer that would be quite good for a hot, summer day.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Light lemony malt aroma. Hazy straw gold with a large white head, white floaties. Sour malt, grassy hops, and strange plasticky-band-aid flavor. Light body, lively carbonation.

12 ounce bottle. Pours gold with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, florals, and citrus. Taste is malt, lemons, florals, and grass. Interesting and easy to drink.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours hazy dark gold with a fizzy short-lived head. Aromas of wheat, some orange, rose petal, and cherry stones. The flavor is slightly tart lemon and citrus, wheat, and grass. Refreshing, tart, and a touch dry. It’s alright

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This is definitely not the summer beer for me. With an aroma of cut grass and cooked cabbage, Pistil starts things on the wrong note. The flavor is hard to take as well. Watery, highly carbonated and twinged with strong tartness from acidulated malt, this beer is quenching, but just tastes bad. Interestingly enough, the grassy aftertaste is pretty decent. Pours hazy straw yellow with a small white head and very active bubbles.
