adnielsen (9134) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 7, 2014
On tap @ the brewery during San Francisco 7/7/14 beer tour. Pours an amber orange appearance with a cream colored head. Slightly nutty, toasted malty aroma with just a vague hint of butterscotch. Carbonation is a bit high. Slight veggie flavor. Caramel and toasted malt. Dull hops. Bleh.

mcberko (6568) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
On tap at Magnolia, pours a clear copper orange with a small beige head. Aroma is very subtle, with toasted herbal notes. Flavour tastes like nothing, just some subtle toasted malt with an English twist. Boring as hell - nothing to this.

DYCSoccer17 (3321) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 16, 2013
10 ounce sample on tap at the brewery last weekend. Spicy and grassy hop aroma with light underlying sweetness. Transparent orange-copper body with a small, light tan head. Starts with some cereal-like flavors. Light toasted malts follow. Lightly sweet caramel, too. Finishes with low grass hop flavor. Pretty drinkable.

tgncc (2823) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Awful diacetyl bomb. Butter, caramel on the nose, and in the flavor. The finish is butter, vaguely English hops. Thin in body. Not good. Wish I could try just one good example of this style.

anders37 (16789) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2013
Cask @ the brewpub. Pours a golden color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty caramel aroma with weak hoppy hints. Fruity malty caramel flavor. Has a fruity malty caramel finish with weak hints of hops.

lusikka (6267) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 17, 2012
Draught @ Magnolia Pub & Brewery, San Francisco. Rated on 15.10.2012.
Pours a copper brown colour with a white head. Aroma of toasted malts, almonds and biscuit. Flavour of toasted malts, biscuit, almonds and really strong grassy hops. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a grassy nutty finish. Decent.

Frank (2889) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Orange red brown with a medium-sized head of mixed bubbles. This is a creamy textured and slightly buttery bitter. It’s just a little tart and a bit grainy as well. I was impressed by Magnolia’s mild but this isn’t doing it for me.

brokensail (11008) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Pours amber in color with an off-white head. Smells sort of...mild. Bread and malt aromas with some toast. Some butter on the nose, maybe some floral hops. Grassy hops, some mineral qualities, and popcorn. Pretty typical Magnolia beer flavors.

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Draft... Medium clear copper, nice light tan head, great retention... Smells great sweet toffee with vanilla... A touch too watery, more toffee, sweet note is gone, a light bitter finish... Solid

BMan1113VR (7864) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Rating from tap (cask was available as well). Pours with a completely clear penny hued body with a small and resilient bone colored head. Aromas are bready, toasty, estery. Diacetyl (butterscotch in this case), hay and a low hop aroma. Flavors are nutty, husky, bready, with an assertive bitterness. Some astringency. Faint esters, a touch of diacetyl (that seems to contribute to a fuller body). Bitterness is a bit grabby. Medium to short duration. Medium bubbles. Decent body, with a bit of slickness. A touch of minerallity in the finish.
