Magic Hat "Pistil"
Magic Hat Brewing Company - South Burlington, Vermont USA
Spice/Herb Lager (ABV 4.5%) (IBU 20)

[Best served in a Lager glass]

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 11/20

The pour was a hazy medium golden yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white creamy head that was mostly diminishing down to a light film and a very small collar and had just a bit of spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a light pale hay malt, floral hops and a mild earthy yeast with notes of oats, citrus (lemon and orange) and a slight floral presence.

The taste was lightly bitter throughout with the beginning having mild hints of citrus and a light hoppiness with a slightly sour floral finish. The flavor was short lived with a slight bitter taste that faded fast.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery and very lightly oily texture and possessed a fizzy carbonation.

Overall a fantastic summer brew that was light, tasty and quite satisfying. It is great to taste a Lager that has some flavor and a great drinkability...
