Vinyl sails in on her shining wings as the spinning sun returns. She is the season-shifter, bursting from her cocoon to sing the ancient song of vernal yearning and to summon spring’s sweet green return... Her metamorphosis becomes our own. Her thirsts are shared by all. Drink in her mysterious elixir as the revolution blooms again...

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.

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?
