What in tarnation is this dandelion ale? Served up first in January, which is a bit too early to be thinking of spring, grass, and flowers, which this beer didn’t have much flavor of anyway. Flat, boring.

Bottle. Pours cloudy light orange with a thin white spitty head. Nose is flowery, lightly herbal, light citrus, lots of different tropical fruits. Flavor is nicely balanced, dandelion character is evident, no herbal/green astringent, very wheaty, somewhat similar in execution to dfh festina peche but i find this cleaner, drier, and tastier. Impressive restraint from Magic Hat.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle pours a hazy light golden color with medium white head. Aroma has lots of weeds, wildflowers, yeast,some lemon, and a only a hint of malts. Taste is sour with a slightly bitter finish and only fleeting sweetness in the middle. Body is thin. Should be more drinkable than this. It would do better with more malts for balance and more flavor in general. I will not try this again.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 Pours a light golden with a lingering head around the rim. Hoppy, fruity aroma and a sweet and hoppy taste.

This is a light beer in color and appearance. It has some resemblance to a pilsner type beer. I would select this beer again. It’s a great first super bowl beer.

A pilsner style beer with the slight fruity taste you get from Magic Hat. Nothing special.

The brew had a soft head the was short lived. The beer has an interesting flavor. It's rather grassy and it lingers for a while. Overall it's a drinkable beer but I would not call it good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a hazed, pale light yellow body with a smallish, white head.
Smell: Shredded flower petals, chopped mint leaf, and some weedy, and bitterish dandelion greens atop the subtle, highly restrained malts.
Taste: Mild malts from top to bottom with some slight milky oat hints. Light, low sweetness that doesn’t last long. Herbal tea accents, a slight sourness there, and a touch of lemon, too. The hops yield a slight mintiness. Dry, lightly sourish, vegetal finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: It’s a bit different, and, while interesting, one was enough for me, thanks.
