    This is a smooth, fresh summer beer that leaves a hopy little bite at the end. Not my favorite brew, but sure should be rated a GOOD beer.

    [Best served in a Lager glass]

    Poured a light brown with an almost white head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing. The aroma was light of bread malts, resin hops and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of caramel and maybe nutmeg. It tasted bitter-sweet at first and finished with a bitter yet acidic-sweet flavor that only lasted a short while. Mouthfeel was quite ceamy in texture and medium in body. Overall a nice seasonal brew.

    The magic hat vinyl has a good flavor and texture to it. A good finish a good start. The taste tends to last a bit on the tongue and on the back of the mouth. A nice maltiness. A nice notes of hops but not over bearing. The aroma starts the taste before the beer touches the tongue.

    Ferm; Ok, Spring Seasonal offering from Magic Hat. The message under the cap said “Never tease, aim to please”. Ehh……I normally would agree with most Magic Hats but this one was just sort-a ok. It reminded me of when I was a child and I was outside playing in the park, the smell of loose dirt, dead leaves on the ground, and new ones starting to come out on the trees. This is a great representation of a “Spring” Beer. Everything screams.....
