Dream Machine brewed by the Magic Hat Brewing Company, with an ABV of 5.7 % This brew pours out a nice dark amber color with a small, white head. Dream Machine is a filtered brew you can see right though it. The appearance is decent to this brew. The smell is bitter with hops and grains. There is some richness to this brew in this smell.Not too big on the smell of this brew. Dream Machine taste is ok with a bitter after taste of hops. The taste at first is smooth but it is over powered by bitterness. The bitterness to this brew is to much for my taste. Mouthfeel is nice at first but, bitter at the end. Not a bad finish to this brew. Overall In'm giving this brew a 3 out 5.

12 oz bottle served ina pint glass.
Look great in the glass with excellent clarity, plenty of visible carbonation and a large, creamy bone-colored head. The head is exceptionally durable.

Aroma: fruity (citrus) APA with a solid malt base. Approaches 4.
Flavor: followas aroma. Great balance. Mildly bitter.

Feel: excellent - lively but soft. Medium body. Smooth.

O: an exceptional version of this style.

Appearance - Pours a somewhat hazy amber orange with an of-white finger head. Dissipates rather quickly, leaving a broken layer of surface suds. Lacing is small and spotty with little stick.

Smell - Smells of grain and bready malts, with hints of caramel and citrus.

Taste - Mostly malt character with notes of caramel and touches of grain. Hops are tame considering the style, but come through with some citrus flavor. Slight pith and stale bread in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with fair to lively carbonation. Goes down easy enough.

Overall - If I deciphered the code right, this was bottled on March 18th, so probably not too old to kill the hops, this is just a very average IPL that shows more malt than hop. It will be quickly forgotten.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. has a caramel color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, hops, some malts. Taste is refreshing. Malts, some hops, a bit of citrus, smooth. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is how a pale lager should be.
