Decent beer but pretty nondescript. That being said it goes down real easy and is pretty refreshing, one of the better Magic Hat beers in my opinion.

Seems lacking in anything defining to me. Nice and refreshing but nothing to make it stand out.

Undated bottle into pint glass. Pours a pale straw color with a thin, short-lived white head. Kind of thin, with an odd lemon-malt taste. Probably OK as a refreshing summer beer if there's nothing else at hand, but it's totally lacking in character.

It smelled like a hefe but tasted way too peppery.
