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. Pours light golden with a pure white head. The aroma is clean with a touch of herbs, from the dandelions no doubt. Drank extra cold, this beer is very thirst quenching, really light in the flavor, with a touch of the dandelions. Really interesting.

Pours medium yellow with a white lingering head and lacing. Nose is light resinous hops. Palate is light medium with a vegetal - not bad - taste. Very little bitterness.

First of all, I think the label looks great. Definitely earns a couple of extra appearance points there. The beer itself looks nice. Nice light yellow gold color with a really good foam. Smells of light malts and dandelion. Tastes surprisingly good. Nice balance. The dandelion is done lightly so as to not take over the beer. Well done. Apparently I like it more than most.

Mostly clear gold, with a thick, frothy, well-sustained lace - nose of clean, pale maltiness, light tartness, subtle herbal notes, and the faintest hint of the dandelion - light bodied - nice, soft, frothy carbonation in the mouth - very clean, with no obvious flaws - lightly tart/acidic and floral up front - lightly bitter middle, with the dandelion mildly evident - mild sweetness pops up momentarily before a crisp, lightly tart, quenching finish - quite refreshing, and a nice surprise from Magic Hat.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2013 12 Oz bottle poured into a pint, orange color, big fluffy long lasting head. Dont know why this beer isn?t rated higher. It is a delicious beer for the style. A go to if you need a session beer or a thirst quencher after yardwork

Bottle from giant eagle. Light hop smell and turbid pour. Crisp clean taste and sharp initial mouthfeel followed by smooth floral aftertaste. Not too spiced. Overall a decent warm weather beer. ---Rated via my mouth

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

Pours a hazy yellow. Aroma is very floral, dandelion, sweet grass, with a bit of pale malt. Crisp and fresh with a nice dry finish. This is actually a very nice Magic Hat in my opinion. Flavor is floral without being overly herbal or vegetative, the sweetness is well balanced, and there is a reserved bitterness that tingles the tongue only slightly. A very refreshing beer at a nice price point.
