Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Man, how long has it been since I last had a Magic Hat? Regardless, this one pours a clear sunset amber topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises mixed greens, nutty toffee, and grass. The taste starts off with a small wave of sweet fruits, but things quickly degenerate into a lasting riot of rotting greens, bad cabbage, and pennies. The echoes resonate for minutes. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, I have no idea what to say about this mess, beyond it is pretty terrible. Maybe there was a reason I haven't had a Magic Hat brew in a while...

If it's from a dream machine, it must be good. From a 12 ounce bottle, on to the beer:

It doesn't look like a pale lager, as it has an amber color with reddish hues. A half-inch of fuzzy head sits on top with adequate retention, leaving a few spots of lace on the glass. It has a decent aroma, one with squirts of pine, earth, grainy, and a vague fruitiness.

This is not good. Having a bitter vegetal flavor is not a good way to be introduced. There is some toasted malt and overall some very herbal tones to the beer. It tastes "raw"; the hops aren't being worked and the malt base is mediocre. It has one thing going for it though; a soft mouthfeel.

If this is what comes out of Dream Machine, I'd be frightened to taste Nightmare Machine.
