A balanced, rich, caramel aroma, with some Belgian PA tones -- really good. An over-worked but clever label. Foggy, woody amber-brown beer. Again, Belgian overtones to the flavor - candied at times, horehound herb, citrus pith. A starchy body with a long, bitter, withering hop finish. Interesting, but I really wish that the beer had fulfilled the promise that the aroma offered.

Pours deep clear amber into a Sam glass. Off-white head recedes to skim surface leaving spot lacing. Dark caramel aromas. Dry with caramel upfront and a lasting smoke and rye finish.

On tap at Flying Saucer- Cordova. Orange-amber pour. The nose, flavor, and palate are deeper in fruit than most Märzens. Enjoyable in session with other Oktoberfests, though not at the front of the pack.

Pours a deep amber/copper with a thin white head. Notes of toffee and caramel on the nose. Lots of malt character on the palate. A respectable oktoberfest. Well done.

On tap. Pours orange with a short lived white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of earthy hops, caramel and biscuit malt, some hints of cherry. Body is medium and crisp. Earthy, herbal hops dominate bready malt and caramel on the palate. Long hoppy finish. Tasty brew but too hoppy for the style.

Magic Hat Hex has a medium, fluffy, off-white head, a slightly hazy, copper appearance with lots of streaming bubbles, and some lacing on the glass. The aroma is of medium-roasted, sweet, fruity barley malt and bread crust. Taste is of roasted malt, wood, bread crust, sweetness, and it has a nice underlying hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is light to medium, and Magic Hat Hex finishes mostly dry, clean, and very refreshing. This beer is super sessionable, and I rate it as being very good. Get some! RJT

Aroma is bready malts, fruit and a very slightly perfumed. The flavor is bready/caramel malts, mild sweetness and a slightly tart/mostly malty finish.

Yet another new fall offering from Magic Hat. Hex is sure drinkable, the flavors for this new Oktoberfest style beer are on the lighter side but they are there, just need to let it sit a bit and that is the hard part, its got a dry end to it so I find myself wanting to polish it off quickly. There are many malts going on here but there’s a subtleness to this brew that creeps up on you and it makes for a great session beer at this time of the year, right thru the fall. Give it some time, I still miss Jinx!

sinkhole (263) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2010
Bottle. Pours amber with hints of orange and a good off-white head. Aromas of malts and caramels blended together with minimal spice. Taste is similarly sweet with slight hop bitterness found. A very enjoyable brew but mellow overall.

3.5
Ibrew2or3 (8913) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Pours clear copper with white head. The mild aroma seems to lightly swirl with notes of caramel, sweet malts, sugar coated red apple wedges, a touch of citrus cotton candy and some herbs. The taste is pretty rich with sweet caramel, sweet malts, stewed raisins, ripe red apples, spiciness and some yeast too.
