1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle.
I have to admit, I’ve found Magic Hat’s stuff to be rather hit or miss. This one pours a light amber orange color with a frothy off-white head. The nose is loaded with sulphur and reminds me of someone’s feet. After holding my nose I take a sip. Nondescript and lifeless. Nothing more than slight cracker notes and an acrid bitterness. Overly aggressive carbonation doesn’t help this brew out. It has a light, watery mouthfeel and lacks both body and substance. As I said, Magic Hat is hit or miss and this one is a big airball. Skip it for sure.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
This poured a cloudy lighter brown color with an eggshell colored head. Aroma was malty nutty and a little bit of stale garbage. Flavor was nutty and something else that I can only describe of offensive burnt malt. This stuff was almost a drainpour for me.

It seems a good seasonal is hard to find, or perhaps I just pick the bad ones. A nice iced tea color, but that’s about as good as it gets for Vinyl. The beer has an odor of canned tuna and peas, extremely unpleasant. The taste also has a bit of canned pea taste, but not as bad as the smell. The head peaked at about a half inch and disappeared completely within ten seconds. Unimpressive, won’t try again.

This is just pure garbage, fart in a bottle. Why even bother to make this drivel?
