poured in pint glass. "Best by" date was nearly 2 months in the future, and purchased from Total Wine at beginning of Fall seasonal season, so should be fresh but ...
A - reddish amber with minimal head that disappears quickly despite long-lasting carbonation bubbling. Very slight cloudiness.
S - off odor; something makes me think of soap. Malty & yeasty. (2nd sample much better and lacking yeasty aroma).
T - malty & funky; short-lived bitter aftertaste fades to clean finish. (2nd sample less funky but retains a little of the unpleasant bitter metallic flavor).
M - OK
D - given the odor and taste, no way for this brew to be highly drinkable. The worst Magic Hat I've had.
Edited with tasting of a 2011 bottle sampled on 9/2011. I averaged the ratings across the two tastings given that the second sample, although much better, had traces of the faults noted on sample 1.
