3.73/5 rDev +15.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from the tap into a tasting glass.
The color is a deep orange with a slight whitish head and a small amount of lacing left on the glass.
The smell is a slight bit malty with some floral aroma that is coming off a touch spicy in the nose as well. There is some tame hops bitterness here in the nose but seems to meld well with the other aromas that it is hard to pick out.
The taste is a little bitter but has some light flowery flavor that hold some of the smack of the hops from taking over. There is a slight lemongrass and ginger flavor in the background that gives this beer a push that was unexpected. There is a slight spicy flavor that is mixing things up and keeping it interesting in the flavor.
The feel of this beer is smooth with a light body and has a nice drinkable feel. The light body allows this beer to hold up well on a hot day.
Serving type: on-tap

Pistil – Dandelion Ale (4.5%) - Magic Hat (Vermont)
App: Pours a very pale straw color and throws an airy, one finger chalk white head that settles slowly. Some particulate matter floating around, with a thick cake of sediment at the bottom. Not sure if this is part of what you get with a dandelion ale, or if this one's been sitting in the cooler for a while. Not unlike the hop sediment seen in a lot of unfiltered pale ales.
Smell: Bouquet is very mild with some grain like sweetness and a slight hint of new growth and apricot. Some hints of weed like bitterness.
Taste: Pretty light on flavor. Some cereal graininess and a slightly fruity, apricot like tartness. Bitterness is very mild. Similar in flavor to New Belgium's Paardebloem, but not as pronounced in flavor. Mild, grainy, and slightly sweet, with a very slight herbal bitterness on the aftertaste. Flavors linger for a long time after the swallow. Very drinkable, but not super engaging. Good hot weather beer.
Mouth: Mild-medium body with assertive carbonation that is a little stinging. Suits this beer as a good hot weather session.
Home tasting, 12oz bottle into Snifter. 3/31/14.
Serving type: bottle
