I think Magic Hat is cool. Slightly off the beaten path, and willing to take a risk or two. Bob’s 1st is more or less an irish red ale, but the american hops lend a unique bitterness that finishes long, with enough malty body to balance it out. I was getting a slight roasty feel from this, along with perhaps a small amount of spice, maybe nutmeg. Complexity is there. I’m hearing rumors that MH is going to phase this out. Seems like a shame, considering it’s one of their better brews. Best at room temperature, in my opinion.

Deep ruby-garnett hue. Small beige head. Sweet, grassy, nose. Tons of malt first, medium bodied, kinda thin in the middle. Bittering hops in the lingering finish. A decent brew. Nice malt backbone supporting a delectable brew.

Malty with a hint of licorice and chocolate. Very little hops. Clear ruby-brown red. No head. Kind of bland. A little bitterness. Med-heavy carb, medium watery body. Nothing special.

One of my favorite magic hats. Interesting mix of flavors with a nice, chocolate finish. It does have a very strange mouthfeel, but it’s one that grows on you. It is really like no other beer out there. However, every once and a while the I get a bottle with an unusual level of bitterness, which makes me lower the rating a little.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2003 Cocoa undertones, beautiful dark amber color, mediocore head, slightly bitter aftertaste. Really nice flavor, though, and this is certainly one of my favorite beers. Jan. 26, 2003: OK. I've changed my mind. This is NOT one of my favorite beers anymore. It's been months since I've last had this, and I'm not really sure what I saw in it. It has a great, dry finish, and some pleasant cocoa/nuttiness in the flavor, but it is a little thin. For an Irish ale it is pretty decent: malty and woody and smokey, but it is not inventive or particularly striking.

Looks like Coca Cola, but tastes like chocolate and hops. I would have liked more malt and less hops, however it was still a fine combination. Also, the mouthfeel was a bit strange as others here have said.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2003 Smooth down the hatch. New flavor appears with each sip. Beautiful appearance. Leaves a grin from ear to ear. Re Rate: Don’t know what I was thinking last time. I don’t even like Irish Red Ales.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 12, 2002
I largely agree with arjan, it has an odd mouthfeel that i dont overly care for. The aroma is quite nice with a mix of malt and spice. The taste is malty, which in general I love, but not so much in this beer. Not very smooth, its not bad, but I cant recomend it.

Dry hopped to hell and back. Nice complex malts make this a treat.
