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 bottle from the Spring Fever sampler case. Thought my mouth was gonna dry out and crack from this otherwise insipid concoction. If this is what dandelion gets ya, please stay away from further experiments magic hat. BLECK!

A like this beer. A bit grainy but it has a great crisp bite to it. A bit heavy for the style of a golden ale but it certainly works for me. Underrated I say.

nearbeer (3588) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 16, 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.

Floral aroma, bright golden appearance. The hop flavor reminds me slightly of Sierra Nevada pale ale. Iíve had other summer beers that taste similar to this and I was not a fan. I would pass on having another one of these.

Purchased from Rally. Enjoyed in a Weizen glass. Light beer taste but with more pronounced hops and a grassy aroma/taste. Fairly smooth and mild hops finish. Lasting bittersweet aftertaste. Medium golden color with lively bubbles and a satisfyingly persistent fluffy head about a finger thick with lacing. It is enjoyable but I might reach for something else first.
