Ah, Magic Hat, well they have some appeal, don’t they? This is a Winter Ale. I guess I’m a little early. Let’s have a sip anyways, shall we?
Hmmm, unfortunately, I’m not a fan. deyholla (12663) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Bottle shared by Kyle, thanks! Poured a cloudy deep amber with an ruby hue and a slowly dissipating brown head. Aroma had a nice pine hop note with a sweet grain backing. The hops almost completely disappeared on the tongue with a sweet grain flavor and a bit of caramel.

12oz bottle. Rust color, tan head. Aroma of cardboard box, earthy hops, and a light caramel malt. Flavor is of bitter cardboard. Hints of caramel malt. Finishes bitter with a touch of toasted grain. Zak187 (4) - Michigan, USA - JUN 15, 2010 does not count
Magic hat roxy rolle kis very close to a wheaT wine. Semi bitter, harsh, and a very hopsy after taste leaves the pallet full of flavor even after finishing the bottle. Great aroma, but lacking in a rich flavor. Not the best magic hat, but definatley a good seasonal beer. jkwalking05 (4745) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Amber in color with a decent sized off-white head. Aroma is of hops, cardboard, and malt. Taste is the same. Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2010
Bottle. Huh, I guess I always thought this beer was an IPA instead of an amber. Pours a nice dark orange color with a 2-finger white head. Aromas of citrus and floral hops; grapefruit rind and orange come to mind. Flavor is bitter and spicy hops, with citrus definitely present. Some malt is present to balance things out, but the main idea here is hops. Pretty good. ewestern (257) - Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Amber color, tan head with nice lacing. Hoppy aroma with maybe a hint of vanilla or caramel underneath. An otherwise bland beer covered with spices. Lemon peel, dash of honey. Almost medium bodied. Well carbonated. Instead of the hops balancing or complimenting the beer, the beer is hops.
