Poured from bottle. Pale gold and clear with fairly good lacing. Aroma is light and fresh, florals and some lemon citrus, also a fairly nice crisp maltiness. Taste starts with some bready malts and light floral hops, crisp lager yeast, and a fairly subdued hoppiness, gets a bit tired near the finish, some stale skunky notes. Mouthfeel is light, lots of carbonation, and overall its some and easily sessionable. A decent IPL that gets a fairly boring quickly but works decently as a session option. Hops are mostly floral, with a bit of a fruity edge, and are decently robust.

This one just didn't do it for me. Tasted too light with little body and didn't hold head retention well. Mouthfeel wasn't there as well.

This pours a copper golden color. Nicely rounded floral aroma notes with some light citrusy hops and a light hoppy kiss on the flavor.

I haven't had much from Magic Hat, but the other brews I had were more enjoyable than this one. I did not care for this. In my opinion, there is nothing that really jumped out at me with this beer; it was borderline bland.
