Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy |  6.30% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

It’s OK to be a Wee Heavy Much has been made of the ills of smoking. Jinx thinks there’s nothing wrong with it. For years, he stood strong with his peat-smoked whiskey malt mash. He held his head high when others made fun of his wee heavy physique, becoming a mainstay in Magic Hat’s Night of the Living Dead Variety 12-Pak. People said he’d never attain an Original Gravity above 15.1 degrees Plato or an ABV above 6%. He proved them wrong. Take Magic Hat into the next alellenium. Vote Jinx.

3.28/5  rDev -13.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Not a bad looking beer. Dark coppery color with a morderate creamy head. Some sediment on the bottom does detract from the overall look.
Smell: Really malty. Smelly of a kind of juicy malt, sweet and fruity. I don't really get much smoke here..
Taste: Sweet. A little sweeter than I really like, but allright. Some alcohol on the exhale, and a bitter hop bite rounding it out. I really don't see this as a smoked beer.
Mouthfeel: Mildly chewy, but mostly smooth and minorly alcoholic. Nothing wrong here.
Drinkability: I got a six of this by trade, and while I won't let it go to waste, this will not be my beer of choice from the fridge. A rather average beer. Won't look for this again.

Serving type: bottle
