Magic Hat Hex is a very clear amber beer with gold and copper tones. The thin, dense khaki head leaves very nice lacing on the glass. It has a very malty aroma, with notes of melanoids and grass. It’s just about medium bodied and pretty silky. It has a dusty finish. This is pretty straightforward. Did these guys really make a lager? It has a lot of Bock qualities. It’s bready and pretzely and almost hints at rye. There’s just enough bitterness to keep it drinkable. It’s not really my thing, but this is really solid for Magic Hat. fiveacestx (970) - Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2011
From a bottle - pours medium orange, cloudy, lots of carbonation and a light head. Light malty flavor with some spice to it. Has a light to medium mouthfeel and an aftertaste of hops. thedm (6184) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 1, 2013
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a extremely large sized head of foamy off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated hazy with with yeast swirls orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The complex aroma was floral and musty. thick . The thick flavor contained notes of hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again. Accidic (13) - Alabama, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Good beer. I personally would like just a tiny bit less hop kick to it but otherwise I cannot make any real complaints. Is the first smoky malt beer I’ve had that I didn’t want to clean my tongue after and makes me interested to try others again. generallee08 (772) - New York, USA - JUL 18, 2014
The body has a beautiful orange amber color with good clarity and some carbonation. The head on top is a creamy off white color about two fingers tall and has good retention. 2/3 the way down the glass and a thin cap is still holding on. There is not much in the way of lacing as the head just slides right down the glass. The aroma has an odd astringent sour hop note with sweet caramel, candy like maltiness. Its medium body sports a sweet caramel candy and toffee like character with some bready and lightly toasted notes in the background. This is balanced by a somewhat sour leafy/grassy bitterness from the hops. As this is Amber Ale and not a true Oktoberfest Lager the finish is slow and light hop bitterness lingers. The carbonation is well balanced and active keeping the texture lively and light.

This octoberfest beer is amazing and it is going to be the opposite of what you think, Dark in color and ready to rise above the crowd. MrBunn (2826) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Bottle. Pours a thickish orange/dark amber with a small head and heavy aromas of malt, grain dust and dark honey. Flavor is very sweet... apple juice concentrate, honey, dough... Not much else going on that I’m inclined to comment on, but I like this one. Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2011
Draft @ Richboro Pub Pours a hazy amber with a decent off white head. The head laste well and laces quite nicely. Has a good aroma of malts, bread, and a touch of sweet fruit. The flavor is toaty and earthy. Has a medium body, a slick texture, good carbonation. The finish is good with a mild aftertaste. A very easy drinking beer. tnkw01 (1753) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Bottle. A wonderful cross between a Oktoberfest and a Amber ale. Nice copper amber color. Nice balnced taste and aroma. Actually one of my favorites from Magic Hat. superspak (5600) - Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2013
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/23/2012. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of caramel, pear, apple, golden raisin, toast, toffee, bread, light grass, and herbal hops. Pretty nice aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of caramel, apple, pear, toast, toffee, nuttiness, bready grain, light grass, floral, and light herbal spiciness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, light fruits, toast, toffee, bready grain, nuttiness, and light herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of flavors; with zero cloying sweetness present on the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and light slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a good Oktoberfest style. Nicely robust with good balance of flavors; and very smooth to drink. This was a nicely enjoyable offering.
