2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle poured into Newcastle pint glass. The smell of lager yeast and slight grass with strong notes of malt. A smoky almost sulphuric hint. It plus a nice golden hazy color with a frothy white head. Lots of lacing and a small ring of bubbles exists through the whole drink. Flavored of pilsner malts and lager yeast dominate. I get no acidity till the very end and its so diluted it almost doesn’t exist, not enough flavor or complexity for a beer of this "style". I was really hoping for more flavor besides the malt and yeast. The body is light with a bit of an acidic burn near the finish but the actual finish is watery and dry enough to match the acidity it feels they want. It doesn’t leave you longing for another sip and that’s just another misstep I feel in the making of this beer. I rarely drink magic hat and this is why, subpar homies subpar. This is inspiration to actually brew a dandelion ale that actually kicks ass and I will.

Very smooth. Different, somewhat exotic smell. Fairly tasty. Doesn’t knock your socks off, but good for a spring/summer night.

Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Killearn - 12 oz bottle. Light medium gold pour with a thin but persistent snow white head. Aroma has a spicy tint to it with some saffron and some light floral notes. Crisp flavor with some grassy notes, a slight lemony citrus bitter undertone, a hint of spice. Refreshing crisp mouthfeel. Pleasantly surprised.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Aroma is just a little strange for me. A mix between flowers and something peppery I can’t seem to place. None of that really seems to translate that well in the flavor either. I’d avoid next time.

Nice nose of honey and flowers that helps to offset the ugly appearance (I wondered if I poured into a dirty glass!). Pleasant, but not overly complex. Enjoyable summer beer.

Cloudy pale hue, white creamy diminishing head, lots of sentiment that dissipates cloudy to clear, smells flowery and perfumey, juicy and sweet, minimal hops, tad of honey, interesting and refreshing. Would drink not buy

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Spicy horseblanket and pollen aroma (maybe it’s the name leading me down that road). Tart citrus, like a juicy orange. Good strength.
The appearance is straw yellow with an unusual sediment and puffy white head. Interesting.
Flavor is lager malt with a severely peppery end. It’s pretty tame, but pleasant enough.
Prickly feel, tons of carbonation. A mild but decent Saison-style beer.

Bottle from Heritage Liquors. Hazy light yellow pour with a very carbonated head. Light floral scents, and the very high carbonation masks almost all else. Not very good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes: Poured hazy straw color with a 2-finger white head. Very light floral and citrus aroma with a touch of yeast. Body was light, but with a surprisingly strong flavor consisting of bright citrus with a floral note that becomes stronger as it warms. Interesting idea.

From the Summer Scene pack. Cloudy orange pour - actually, more "floating particles" than cloud. Medium fluffy white head. Aroma is definitely floral, with a swampy earth background and some malty and hops hanging around. Flavor is hard to place - definitely a bitterness coming from something other than the hops, along with a dry mint taste and some grapefruit. a little malty at the end, sort of hurts the effect. This is pretty interesting, just doesn’t come together.
