3.45/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle, with some sort of coded bottling date on the bottleneck. Another new summer seasonal beer to me from Magic Hat, acquired as part of the summer sampler twelve pack.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a nice coppery orange colored body with some decent clarity and about a finger and a half of quickly fading off-white foam. Appears adequately carbonated. Looks good for what it is.

S - The smell is lightly herbal / sprucey / piney / grassy. Some pungent earthy bready yeast / malts are also present. Lightly grainy.

T - The is about average for the style, but it is a solid example. Bready, grainy, lager yeast qualities mixed with some light herbal / grassy / floral hop bitterness. Lightly dirty and earthy.

M - The feel is clean, bready, lightly bready, & with some hop resins / bitterness clinging to the palate.

Overall, a slightly above average example of the "India-style pale lager" from Magic Hat. Impressive for what it is, with a moderate 5.70% abv. A likely contender for repeat summer drinking.

Magic Hat Dream Machine ---3.5/5

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.
