Magic Hat "Hex"
Magic Hat Brewing Company - South Burlington, Vermont USA
Oktoberfest (ABV 5.4%) (IBU 25)

[Suggested Glassware: Dimpled Mug]

Rating: 2.9/5.0

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

The pour was a clear copper brown with an average (1-2 finger) off white rocky head that reduced down to just a small collar, which produced some fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a stale bread malt and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee, maple syrup and a hint of smoke.

The taste was malty and lightly sweet with a hint of caramel early on, with the finish having a slightly harsh hop bite, a light toffee sweetness and a mild smoke presence. The flavor lasted a decent amount of time following the swallow, with a mild smoky malt flavor left behind.

Mouthfeel was just beyond light in body and somewhat watery in texture with a prickly carbonation.

Overall a decent enough tasting Oktoberfest, which had a nice malty-sweet smoky flavor...
