Orange in color with a nose of vegetables and light malt, this beer is light on the foam and has a slight haziness. The foam doesn’t last very long, but it isn’t too bad and is very clean, leaving no lace.
This beer has an interesting flavor of vegetables and light malt, with little or no hop. The taste is sweet overall and there is some spice from hibiscus, but not much and the vegetables are the most dominant flavor. Cucumbers and other greens are obvious and they present a flavor dimension you don’t usually find in most beer. I could even taste a little bit of fruit in the flavor, mainly melon, and there is little hop character.
Vegetable beers are not commonplace, but Magic Hat seems to have made a respectable effort with this beer. It’s been a while since I sampled a beer made with cucumbers and while it may sound weird, it isn’t too bad overall. The alcohol is lower than normal, but so is the body. It all adds up to a beer that is okay, but could be better.
