Aroma is malts, spices and a mild hint of sourness/tartness. The flavor is malts, lemons, mild spiciness and a mildly sour finish.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow gold body with a fizzy white head that had pretty good retention for a Magic Hat beer. The nose is light, fruity, and floral with a scent that does actually remind me of dandelion wine actually. The flavor is a bit overly thin and weak though, actually pretty downright watery. There’s a slight floral hoppiness and a minimal bitterness on the back end, along with a light perfume like quality. Thin bodied and very fizzy with a vegetal finish. Can’t say too many good things about this one.

This poured a clear yellow colorw ith a white head. Aroma was of light mint, grain, and not much else. Didn;t really taste the dandellion, at least i dont think, mainly just grainy plain bland golden ale.

Pours nearly clear gold with a puffy white head. Scent is floral.....it truly does showcase the dandelion. Taste is na odd, grassy, floral, herbal, malty......dullness. ....strange bittering. Quite....unusual.

Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of lightly tart citrus, floral notes, honey, and a touch of bread. It pours a transparent gold with a one finger, slightly fizzy, white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a touch of sweet honey. The finish turns to light-moderate citrus hops, grapefruit, and light floral notes. It’s light bodied with lively/fizzy carbonation. Overall, it tastes like a lightly floral Pale Ale. It’s a decent lawn mower beer.

berkshirejohn (6451) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2014
12oz bottle from Drum Hill Liquor, Chelmsford, NH. A cloudy pale amber pour with a ring of white head; sweet aroma; grainy body with a slight sourness that’s quite refreshing. I was a bit uncertain about this when I saw the ingredients, but it’s actually a good summer refresher.

ajnepple (6428) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 12, 2013
12 oz bottle pours clear and yellow with a frothy white head. The aroma is lemons, bready malts, yeast and spices. Light body with a crisp feel. Flavor is toasted grains and malts, lemons, grass, pepper. Not bad.

2.5
ben4321 (6412) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Giannone, 5/31/13

Aroma: The aroma is on the lighter side, with bread, grass, a little straw, and light herbal notes
Appearance: It pours a clear gold-orange color with a large, quick fading, foamy white head
Flavor: The taste is similar to the nose, it is light sweet and light bitter, malty and herbal
Palate: The body is fairly light, and it has so much carbonation that it hurts the drinkability
Overall Impression: This wasn’t a favorite for me. The nose and taste are both fine, but nothing special, but where this one falls apart is that it is completely over carbonated. Its not great otherwise, but with a little more drinkability it could have been better.

3.2
vyvvy (6392) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 29, 2012
Pours hazy yellow with a small white patchy head. The aroma is very powdery and floral with pale malt, chalk and some fruitiness. Medium / light body that’s crisp with the light sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with weird herbal notes along with the aroma traits The finish is quite peppery. Decent beer.
