This will be brief. I can’t describe the color of this one because I drained it from the bottle.
I haven’t been a huge fan of Magic Hat beers. They are good but they haven’t wowed me. Tonight, I found this beer at a local grocery store. It is described as a hoppy amber. I like amber. I really like hoppy. Seemed like a natural fit so I had to buy a six pack.
It has a very nice hop aroma. It’s a forward scent but it isn’t overpowering. The beer is medium bodied (to me) and you definitely get that smooth taste of an amber. The malty sweetness is very subdued. Then the hops hits. The hops is pronounced but not overly bitter. It also isn’t overwhelmingly citrus, like many of the west coast beers. Very tasty. Very nice. Very much worth trying.
