Notes/Commercial Description:
Stop and smell the petals Pistil is a summer beer unlike any other, brewed with a combination of dandelion petals, Pale and Acidulated malts, flaked oats, and Apollo and Northern Brewer hops that results in a one-of-a-kind beer with a slightly sour acidity and a smooth malt body. Perfect for taking down deep thirst.

Magic Hat Pistil

Poured into a standard pint from a 12 oz bottle.

Appearance: Light golden ale with a light white head with good lacing. 3.5/5

Smell: Kind of grassy, not particularly strong. 3.25/5

Taste: Light flavor, slightly floral, underwhelming. 2.75/5

Mouthfeel: Light, fizzy almost watery ale. 2.75

This is not particularly good. Maybe I need to wait for Summer to like this, but I wish I didn't buy it. 3/5

Drainpour.
Maybe one of the worst craft beers I have had.
I keep trying different offerings from Magic Hat because I am a fan of #9 and I most often find some real duds. This is one of those. Another was their beet colored beer. Just terrible. I guess they are "one beer wonder" brewery.
