If I had reviewed this 3 years ago while drinking it on tap at Mad River over a bowl of chili after a nice sunshine-filled trip down the mountain it would have gotten a much higher rating. Today, drinking it from a bottle it tastes a lot differently than I remembered. Aroma is faint apple, citrus, metallic like a lager. Taste is bitter with strange yeast flavor and lager-beer metallic after-taste. Beer would be smooth on palate if not for medium carbonation. The last time I had this I remember it being maltier which I liked. Now it just tastes...strange?

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Slightly foggy pale yellow pour with a modest white fizzy head. I do not know what it is about that Magic Hat yeast strain but all of their beers have this kind of vegetable oil, buttery aroma and this is no different. I pick up a hint on pale malts and grassy hop note. The body is about medium. The taste has a toasted biscuit and bread character with a clean, almost citrus-like hop finish.

Magic Hat Single Chair has a medium, white head, a clear, bubbly, golden-straw appearance, and some slight lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, very yeasty, creamy maltiness. Taste is of those elements, with some sourness and a touch of bitter. Mouthfeel is medium, and Magic Hat Single Chair finishes dry and easy drinking. RJT

This beer is pretty refreshing and pretty much the same as most of their other beers. Mild in every aspect. A good, yet very regular beer.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured light yellow, clear, small white head no lacing. Aroma grain, yeast and maybe some malts. Taste is similar, grain, malts slightly bitterness and some peppery notes. Very easy to drink, crisp, refreshing. OK beer.

12oz bottle, from my local Kroger. Half hazy kind of darker golden color. Fizzing bubbly thin white head fills the head space of the glass after pouring. Fades to a thin reasonable amount that retains well, and leaves good thicker ridges of lace. Mild citrusy hop, breadiness, and a metallic kind of macro-lager funk. Has sort of a macro-lagery bite to it, not too bothersome though. Some pepperiness. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, sort of crisp lighter to moderate strength carbonation. Light slickness. Easy to take gulps of. Moderate bitter, light to moderate sweet taste. Not a bad cream ale overall. Good balanced taste, easy-swiggin’.

Fourth beer consumed in the MYSTERY BOX, sent from my father last Thursday. Many thanks! To oversized cognac snifter, it pours a peach-tinted lemon chiffon with which foamy, white-ringed head 1 finger in length stood. Aromas of chickpeas, russet potato skins, salad greens, unripe bananas, caramelized obions, and noble hops. Tastes the same with the addition of sea salt, spent grain, wheat bread, and American yeast. Extremely drinkable.

2 oz. sample at the brewery. Clear gold color. Doesn’t smell like much, light hints of pale malt. Really searching.... Nope that is it.

Flavor is weak hints of pale malt, grain and corn husk. Thin watery body with a slight honey hints. Not terrible but really just not much here.

off, nah. This is seltzer water with some bad added to it. Pretty lame, nothing really going on to warrant writing a full review.
