Bottle from the brewery. Clear amber pour, small white head. Quite malty, light grassy hops. Nothing much, but quite refreshng after a warm afternoon of yardwork.

Worth trying. Not too inspiring. Magic Hat is a great brewery that has some better stuff out.

McGarnigle (543) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Growler. Kind of hazy amber. This is a decent lager. Some caramel malt and a slight hop bite. Website says it has Northern Brewers which I like, and make it bear some resemblance to Anchor Steam.

Clear medium amber with a long-lasting head covering and cobweb lace. Caramel malt is dominant with an earthy biscuit bitter to finish it off. Nice little diversion. (I think my sample is fresher than some of the other reviewers).

stangger (583) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Tap at the wet whistle in abington. Straight caramel, sweet malt. Mildly watery. Boring, pointless. Another disappointment from magic hat.

dwyerpg (4436) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Doesn’t have a lot of aroma, but some caramel malt. This is not aggressive in any way, but definitely a by-the-books type of lager. Sweet caramel malts and a bit strainy, drinkable.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Bottle. Poured amber with a fizzy, quick off-white head. Aroma of toasted malts and toffee. The flavor found toasted malts with a slight earthy backing. Medium body and a toasted malt aftertaste.

Hair6a11 (1313) - Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle; Pour is murky golden amber with a modest off white head in this glass. It doesn’t retain well, and there is some light lacing present. The nose is biscuits, roast, caramel, and some grains...honestly this is yet another shitty magic hat brew. Marketing is their primary focus here, naturally. It’s thin, way too roasty for the style, more grains and some adjunct... Hated it.

Bosco (160) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Pours brown/amber with minimal head/lace. Dry, sweet, palate is soda poppy. $1.99/12oz @ Total Wine & More, Boca Raton, FL

Cybercat (3195) - Georgia, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Crisp, malty, slightly fruity aroma is a little better than many lagers I have sampled. It pours a clear, dark copper with a fine-bubbled, if not too persistent, pale tan head. Crisp, malty flavor has a firm note of apple and just a hint of pear - and is that a touch of hops? Texture is about average, but overall this is a refreshing beer. Good for a party or paired with a light meal.
