Magic Hat Hex has a medium, fluffy, off-white head, a slightly hazy, copper appearance with lots of streaming bubbles, and some lacing on the glass. The aroma is of medium-roasted, sweet, fruity barley malt and bread crust. Taste is of roasted malt, wood, bread crust, sweetness, and it has a nice underlying hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is light to medium, and Magic Hat Hex finishes mostly dry, clean, and very refreshing. This beer is super sessionable, and I rate it as being very good. Get some!

I drank this from a pint glass...

The beer pours an amber/ copper color with a thick egg-shell colored head. It smells of toasted caramel malt, butter and toffee. The taste is big on toffee, with earthy hops bread and caramel and a slightly smoky bitter finish. It has a medium body with low carbonation and a bit of a dry finish. This was a decent Octoberfest, has more of a bitter side than most which I did enjoy.
