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.

This beer poured a mute golden color with a white head. This head held up pretty well at one finger width.

Being brewed with dandelions this beer gives off a nice floral note, that's not to hoppy. A second note of lemon citrus is found. The flavor is that of a light lager but finishes a little earthy. Beer displays a weaker bitterness that coats the tongue. The finish is clean with only a mild effect to the palette.
