This beer poured a mute golden color with a white head. This head held up pretty well at one finger width.
Being brewed with dandelions this beer gives off a nice floral note, that's not to hoppy. A second note of lemon citrus is found. The flavor is that of a light lager but finishes a little earthy. Beer displays a weaker bitterness that coats the tongue. The finish is clean with only a mild effect to the palette.

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.
