Style: American Amber / Red Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Dream Machine, an India Pale Lager or IPL, is a melding of varied visions of an India Pale Ale and an Amber Lager. Once poured, its light copper color delights the eyes and a citrusy hop aroma flows through the nose. Upon first sip, a smooth hop bitterness reveals itself – fresh, bold and slightly spicy – before subtle hints of mild maltiness appear. A big hop bite and a crisp, clean lager finish combine for a beautifully balanced beer. Take Dream Machine for a spin and let your reverie begin.

-Not much to say. I don't like it. Most Magic Hat beers ive found to have this harsh bitter rind to them

This one just didn't do it for me. Tasted too light with little body and didn't hold head retention well. Mouthfeel wasn't there as well.

I haven't had much from Magic Hat, but the other brews I had were more enjoyable than this one. I did not care for this. In my opinion, there is nothing that really jumped out at me with this beer; it was borderline bland.
