COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stop and smell the petals. Pistil is a summer beer unlike any other, brewed with a combination of dandelion petals, Pale and Acidulated malts, flaked oats, and Apollo and Northern Brewer hops that results in a one-of-a-kind beer with a slightly sour acidity and a smooth malt body. Perfect for taking down deep thirst.

Mostly clear gold, with a thick, frothy, well-sustained lace - nose of clean, pale maltiness, light tartness, subtle herbal notes, and the faintest hint of the dandelion - light bodied - nice, soft, frothy carbonation in the mouth - very clean, with no obvious flaws - lightly tart/acidic and floral up front - lightly bitter middle, with the dandelion mildly evident - mild sweetness pops up momentarily before a crisp, lightly tart, quenching finish - quite refreshing, and a nice surprise from Magic Hat.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2013 12 Oz bottle poured into a pint, orange color, big fluffy long lasting head. Dont know why this beer isn?t rated higher. It is a delicious beer for the style. A go to if you need a session beer or a thirst quencher after yardwork

Bottle from giant eagle. Light hop smell and turbid pour. Crisp clean taste and sharp initial mouthfeel followed by smooth floral aftertaste. Not too spiced. Overall a decent warm weather beer. ---Rated via my mouth

Very smooth. Different, somewhat exotic smell. Fairly tasty. Doesn’t knock your socks off, but good for a spring/summer night.

Pours a hazy yellow. Aroma is very floral, dandelion, sweet grass, with a bit of pale malt. Crisp and fresh with a nice dry finish. This is actually a very nice Magic Hat in my opinion. Flavor is floral without being overly herbal or vegetative, the sweetness is well balanced, and there is a reserved bitterness that tingles the tongue only slightly. A very refreshing beer at a nice price point.

Aroma similar to an IPA. Pours pale and yellow with a white head. Taste is crisp and clean with a pleasant aftertaste. More of a spring Ale. I'd buy a sixer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear light golden with a slight chill haze, under an unstable rocky white head. Aroma is floral hoppy but not too strong..definitely smells like a 4.5% beer, with quiet dandelion notes and a little pale ale malt body. Flavor is nice and crisp with a surprising amount of bitterness (good thing), coming with more of that pale malt backbone and crisp floral and grassy hops. Honestly if it weren’t for the slight bit of dandelion on the nose, I would confuse this for a Sierra Nevada Pale. Drinkable body with a low-abv-ipa bitterness throughout.

Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a somewhat hazy, golden appearance with a cream colored head. Very floral, big herbal, grainy straw, a bit earthy aroma. Flavor is just a bit tart with just a touch of fruit and plenty of grainy malts and oats. Floral, a bit spicy, and pretty tasty. I’m tempted to pick up a sixer of this, which is a great complement from a fucken ticker.
