Paid $1.50 for a single at The Party Source in Bellevue, KY.

The beer pours a slightly hazy golden base with a large frothy white head, minimal retention and little to no lacing. With one whiff I get a strong tone of lemon, followed by some weaker tones of grain and yeast.

The taste one-ups the smell due to a peppery spice tone added, and well blended with the lemony and bread flavors. The beer feels a little heavy in the mouth but has a remarkable aftertaste that haves me craving some more, thus very drinkable and a big thumbs up.

Final Thought: Let this one settle about 15 minutes, warm up, and enjoy it's subtle complexities. Another great brew from Magic Hat!
