COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Say hello to Magnifico! Hes our latest summer beer released very quietly on August 4th, 2011. Hopefully once you see the graphic youll recognize Magnifico who played a small role on our very first label: Jack DOr. Well now the little hop we call Magnifico has his own spin-off beer (and glassware)! Magnifico is a project weve been thinking about for quite some time: a highly drinkable, full flavoured low gravity beer. For this we werent talking about close-to-5% either, but much smaller. On brew day we set our sights on 8 degrees Plato (i.e. a VERY low amount of sugars to start with) to make a 2.5% beer, but we hit 8.3. The beer fermented down a tad more than we thought it would, which is how we ended up at 3.4%. Magnifico is super drinkable, but its full bodied and not watery. Bitterness lends to its drinkability as well, splitting the beer down the middle and requiring of you another sip! The beer finishes with Sterling & Magnum hops. Were not sure how long youll see Magnifico or if well ever be able to brew him again. Hopefully if youre in MA youll find yourself some Magnifico on draught!

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Poured into a snifter. 3.25 A: Lightly hazed light orange color. One and a half fingers of pillowy white head. Retention is about average and just a wisp or two of lacing are left. 3.25 S: Dank hoppiness which is allowed to shine due to the lack of tons of malt. Floral, herbal, and earthy. Just a hint of spicy yeastiness. Not a lot going on, but it works. 3.5 T: Taste is like the nose, but better. Floral, herbal, earthy hops. Mild bitterness. Touch of spice. Its just a sessionable way to drink hops. 3.5 M: Lighter body. Maybe a hint too much carbonation, but good enough. Not really creamy, but smooth. 3.25 D: Its decent for what it is, though I definitely prefer more flavorful brews. ★ 699 characters DavoleBomb, Aug 08, 2013

wedgie9 (2684) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a bottle at the late night tasting after the RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours hazy, pale yellow with an average white head that recedes to average lace. The nose is restrained pale malt with a touch of citrus hops. The flavor is the same, very light with decent hops bitterness. The body is light with average carbonation and a short bitter hops finish.

Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle at Ryan and Jodis with friends. Pour is clear golden with a big frothy head and great lacing. Biscuity, grassy, lemony, zesty, crackers, and lightly fruity aroma. Taste is biscuit, lemon peels, grass, dough, hay, straw, and light weed with light bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not bad.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden color with a smallish white head on it. Nose is only somewhat hoppy, but with some nice floral notes to it. Taste is dry and slightly bitter, yet feels light, crisp, and fresh. Really pleasant light drink.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Taster at RBWG 2014 grand tasting - thanks to the person who shared this! Mostly hazy golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Dots, ropes of lace. Good looking stuff. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Nice biscuity, caramel malty aroma. Some orange citrus zest. Moderate sweet, light bitter. Pretty respectable, smooth, sessionable, satisfyingly hoppy pale ale, with an interesting yeast character to it. Enjoyable stuff to try. Edit: whoa, 3%? Wow, here I was rating this thinking it was a 5% pale ale. Great hoppy session ale! Even more impressive now!

Bottle - Grassy and a little dank hops and grains. Clear gold with a rich white head. Pale malts, light body and slightly hopped. A great light, flavorful session ale.
