beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2007
(06.21.07) On tap at Magnolia Pub and Brewery. 5.1% ABV. Hazy amber ale with small white head. Light citrus aroma. Small carbonation. Starts dry with citrus grapefruit hop flavors. Medium finish with light lingering hop bitterness. Slightly thin and watery side otherwise, a nice hoppy beer without aggressive bitterness. Goes well with a Cuban sandwich. One of the better offerings at Magnolia.

AirForceHops (3963) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Light copper color with soapy head and retention. Aroma is very herbal without much else showing. Medium to lighter in body with a lingering herbal finish that hangs for a good duration after the sip. Could this resumable a healing tonic from the early part of the 1900’s? perhaps, simple, straight forward and well made.

Steve_0 (3031) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pour is clear orange with a huge cream colored head and great lacing. Bready, husky, light grapefruit, citrus, and grassy aroma. Taste is pretty bland - slightly floral, grainy, biscuity, grassy, and herbal with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not bad for less than 5%.

lusikka (6741) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 17, 2012
Draught @ Magnolia Pub & Brewery, San Francisco. Rated on 15.10.2012.
Pours a hazy golden copper colour with a white head. Aroma of toasted malts, floral hops and bread. Flavour of mild toasted malts, really strong and pungent hops, raisins and hay. Medium bodied, slick and a bit thin mouthfeel and a dry bitter finish. Nicely hopped, but lacks maltiness.

A decent aroma is the only highlight of this otherwise lackluster beer. A neat trip into the past, but still pretty mediocre.
