Magic Hat Brewery: Pours a pale gold with a white head. Aroma is almost of nothing, but there is a whiff of a hop here and there, along with a nice malty backbone. Taste is pretty good, but as could be imagined, nothing complex. Grassy kind of hops and a thin malt backbone. This would make for a good summer beer. Unfortunately, I had it in winter, although today was hella warm. Oh well.

Had on tap. Pretty boring ale. Tastes more like a domestic lager. Not much smell, and no unique taste. Not a fan.

Slightly tart, must have the same yeast as #9 or something. IT is pretty crappy.

Well well a let down by MH. Mad River deserves a better beer than this. OK bubblely bright yellow with soapy head. The aroma is mostly astringent grain and little light fruit. Taste is a medium sweetness. It isnt bad but just boring

(12oz bottle thanks to my favorite provider of top-tier beers, Fratto) gold pour, effervescent bubbles, fine white bubbles on top. Nose of hairspray, grain. Taste of grain mash, a bit astringent, and hair, some spiciness as well. Tiny bit of cherry. Gross, stale, old linger.
