2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear straw no head. Light floral aroma. Light body light taste cat pee. Metallic. Was really hoping there would be at least a little bit of good flavor to talk about.

Bottle from stevencon! Pours a slightly hazy yellow with little to no lacing or head. Aroma of faint wheat, taste is floral and slight lemon. Wow, magic hat fails again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a thick frothy white head. Aroma of floral hops, lemon and orange zest, and a bit of bananas. Taste earthy, like grass and plant stems. Hints of citrus and a medicinal banana flavoring. Like children’s medicine that has been flavored. Nice carbonation and refreshing. Just doesn’t taste all that great.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma similar to an IPA. Pours pale and yellow with a white head. Taste is crisp and clean with a pleasant aftertaste. More of a spring Ale. I'd buy a sixer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
New Beer Distributors, NY 12oz ($2): Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is flowers, but not at their prime... more like the stems and leaves than the aromatic parts. Taste is like a mediocre blonde ale with some elements that I suppose are, in part, thanks to the flowers. Lightly hopped. Bready. This was worse than I thought it would be.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Magic Hat Pistil has a medium, frothy, off-white head, a hazy, yellow-golden appearance, some lacing left behind, streaming bubbles, and an enormous amount of fine white particles floating throughout. The aroma is a strange mix of sweet malts, acidic juice, and freshly-mowed grass. Taste is of pineapple juice, weeds from the lawn, acid, sweetness, bitterness, and plant stems. Mouthfeel is medium, and Magic Hat Pistil finishes dry and tart. Overall, this is an usual, yet interesting beer. RJT

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home in CT. Pours clear gold with a slight, white foam head. Some tangy citrus in the nose. Light to medium sweet flavor, some grassy bitterness, sugary malts and orange and lemon. Light bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Light doughy malt sweetness to finish, some further grassy bitterness, dry lemon peel, subtle tang. So so.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yellow, almost but not quite clear, fizzy white head. Smells grainy, grassy, with a whiff of corn. Flavor is cereal, a bit grassy, and an odd bitterness that seems familiar but I can’t quite place it. Dry, slightly woody finish.
