Beer review from BA Mag Nov 2007.

Brewed with an English Ale yeast, pale, crystal, and dark crystal malts, hopped with Brewer's Gold, Simcoe, and dry-hopped with more Simcoe. An against the grain winter seasonal--we love it already.

Nice and bright, tarnished copper-colored brew, with a beige head, lacing and clinging stick. Floral, grapefruit, spicy, some mint and green wood in the nose. Super smooth on the palate, light and creamy, but rounded. Big and bold spicy-grapefruit hop flavor with a grassy edge and citric snap. Raw, leafy, and coarse on the tongue. Some chalky aspirin, too. Malt characters have no ground in the hop dominance, but they do pull through in the form of some biscuit-husky tannins--doughy at times--and there's a slight bready sweetness and drop of caramel that emerges as the beer warms. Wicked dry finish, with a lingering aspirin note that all leaves the palate bone-dry and smacking for more.

Though it does lack malt balance, the ride is an even one, and it is what it says--a "Hoppy Amber Ale." It's also nice to see so much damn hop flavor from a beer that's only 35 IBU, proving once again that hop usage doesn't need to be reckless to be big and bold. This one could give most IPAs a run for their money and is a "must try" for hopheads.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Patchy light tan lace crowns the glass, good head retention and clarity to be looked at. Hoppy aroma that lets some malt in, a nose of mandarin oranges, wild flowers, caramel and sweet bread. Very smooth with a medium body. Hop profile flexes with an ample bitterness that throws a woody, herbal and slightly citric flavor. Malt sweetness is there but enough to hold the beer together in body and flavor. Hints of caramel and bread crust. Bit of fruity yeast, mineral and drying herbal hop flavor in the finish.

Hoppy Amber Ale or American Winter Warmer? It has a bit of a northwest flare but still holding on to the Magic Hat traits. Either way, I highly recommend this drinkable ale.

Nice winter is coming type ale, though not too high abv's, gives you a nice warming feeling. Rich with caramel and grapefruit aromas, as well as grapefruit flavor. Balanced with a closing bitterness that is pleasant. Overall, one I like to enjoy when possible, very drinkable, giveit a try. Cheers!
