Earthy, rich and steeped in autumn’s magic: it’s an ale of change. This potent infusion is haunted by memories of summer and the first frost on abandoned fields. Jinx prepares the bones for snow. It has the glint of golden maples at peak and finishes light as an ode to the fading sun. A bit of peat-smoked malt imparts a subtle hint of smoke that reminds us of fall’s bonfires. Available in the Fall.

Flyer (118) - Hartland, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 10, 2008
A fairly standard amber ale with some nice smokiness, but some issues as well. Amber color with a minimal head. The flavor is solid, some caramel and smoke, but the aftertaste has a very soapy, cleaning fluid, vaguely perfumey quality. A bit of an alcohol burn, which is neither a negative nor, in this case, much of a positive. What’s good is not original, and what’s original is not good.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2016
Pours a crisp bright golden yellow color. Aromas of peat, moss, and vegetables. Flavor is metallic vegetable tasting. Watery, sweet finish that was gone in a second.

BeAndrews (30) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2015
Pours a clear bubbly dark copper with a small diminishing white head. Nice smoky malt aroma, reminds me of whisky, along with some toffee and hops. The flavour, even though it’s a mild version of a Smoked beer, is still pretty good. It’s malty with some smoke, sugar and a little whisky.

It pours amber with a light tan head. It has a roasted aroma with hints of nuts. It has flavors that are sweet which include caramle, roasted elements, and smoked flavoring. The lacing is moderate. It has a semi dry finish with a hint of cherry.

Ed5388 (3439) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2014
12oz bottle from Crossroads. Poured a clear Amber color with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of sweet wort, toasted grain, and hints of scotch malt. Taste is grainy, with old citrus fruit, and hints of scotch malt.

Some of the flavors are there, but it's a pretty thin beer without much body. Not horribly complex or memorable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JonLaRue (59) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Aroma is light smoked malt, so faint that it takes a hard snort. Light brown and pale. Large scotch bites paired with an English ale. The taste is good. The palate is better. A great campfire beer.

MartinVanBeer (116) - Little Rock, Arkansas, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Thin but dense white head. Aroma is old bread, yeast, and some raisin. Kind of a lot of carbonation for this style. The flavor is fairly bland with some small notes of banana and hay. I get almost no smoke. I like Magic Hat, but this is not my favorite brew from them. However, it is very drinkable, and I think I would enjoy it in the woods next to a camp fire.

Aholmb1 (134) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - OCT 13, 2014

pottygok (548) - Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Aroma: Hints of yeast with caramel malts, but it’s all very faint. Appearance: Bright amber with a nice tan head. Taste: Light sweetness balanced by a light sourness. Palate: Medium body, slick oily texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Not a fan. I’m not sure what they were going for with this beer, but it certainly isn’t working.

akoeninger (744) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Brownish amber color. Sweet, earthy, and yes a hint of smoke. One of the more enjoyable offerings from Magic Hat that I've had. Full bodied and rich. A decent scotch ale and a good fall beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
