3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Blonde ale, slight carbonation, aroma of grass and hay, slight white head. Nice light malt flavor, low to no bitterness, easy to drink. Good but not outstanding.

It seems to be an unwritten rule that all magic hat beer must suck. This one is no different.

Very good and strong too. Not lacking some features as many types of this brewery. Very appealing and refreshing but with great character.

For all tastes = standard boring Blonde ale. Didn’t really expect more, yet somehow disappointed. Very very pedestrian.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a sly burnt yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than about thirty seconds. Carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace. One filmy ring of lacing clings to the side and then slides into the beer.
The smell had a dried lemon rind to it and grasping a dried sweet grass trying to balance. The lemon is bitter and huge and dry.
The taste was mainly harsh bitter lemon. Dried out lemon hits in the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with not so much sessionability about it, probably due to the fact of the overly bitter component of the lemon.
Overall, some would call this one dimensional, me, I guess we could say that, but at the same time, I’m not really impressed with the aroma and taste, so...there’s a good chance, I probably won’t come back to this.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Madrones in Frederick, MD served in a pint glass; clear golden color with white head. Aroma notes of light malt sweetness, some grain and faint grassy/fruity hops. Taste adds bread, more malt sweetness and light earthiness. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp with clean finish. Nice enough malty yet crisp golden ale.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a transparent light yellow color with very little carbonation, razor thin white ring about the vessel for a head with very light lacing. Aroma of grass- and that’s about it. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt just tastes like grass on the start, light pepper in the middle, finish is rather bland which transcends into water. Drinkable, but everytime I have a Magic Hat brew, it just tastes off to me.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours clear gold, no real head, lace or retention. Aroma of grassy and dank. Taste is sweet, no real bitterness. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, watery mouth feel. Finishes skunk like. This is either old or just belongs with the TV beers. Not good.
