hotstuff (4864) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Rated on 01-30-2010 (Draft) This beer pours a small tan head that mostly diminished, transparent body, no visible carbonation, fair amount of lacing, and a golden hue. The Aroma is malty, hoppy, caramel, and nutty. The Taste is malty, hoppy, bitter, caramel, and has a dry finish. The Palate is smooth and this is a medium bodied beer. All-in-all, just a so-so tasting beer without a lot of pizzazz to it. This is a beer that did not leave me wanting more of.

Spring 2010 Vintage

7/20/2010: Magic Hat Vinyl Lager Spring Seasonal... Aroma: Toasted grains; bread crust; almond; light caramel syrup. Appearance: Hazy coppery-gold color; contains some fine suspended sediment; frothy beige head; minimal level of visible carbonation. Flavor: Toasty sweet malts; dried leaves; doughy (slightly yeasty); a touch of caramel; moderate earthy-floral bitterness in the crisp, spicy/grassy finish. Palate: Medium-bodied; smooth; calm mouthfeel. Overall: Nothing like I had expected, but better than expected; this is a tasty Vienna-style lager; I would drink a 6-pack of this...

3/4 pint bottle (5.1% Alc./Vol.; Best before end of: May 2010) from Bigg’s Hypermarket in Harrison, Ohio. Rating #340 for this beer.

Amber pour with a small eggshell head.Very malty aroma with some raisin and brown sugar in the background.Flavor is malt, a little grass, slightly sweet, grassy finish. A little on the thin side. Nothing bad about it but hard to recommend.

From notes: Poured hazy orange-amber with a 1-finger bone-colored head. Bready yeast aroma with a sweet malt note. Medium body with a slightly lingering finish. Flavor was mostly bready yeast, giving way to a malty sweet note. OK.

Amber pour into the glass with a white head. Notes of malt on the nose. Crisp, clean, and refreshing but lacking the depth I’ve become so fond of with Magic Hat. Not bad, but could be better.
