This is the worst beer I have ever had. The cucumber was the worst aspect of the beer and it didn't provide anything at all flavorful. Terrible taste and a terrible beer. If I could give this a zero I would

There are people out there who enjoy this? I'm not sure how this made it out of the Magic Hat factory. Mixing cucumber and beer just doesn't work. I don't know what else to say, I love Magic Hat but this particular concoction was repugnant. I'm hoping for the next variety pack they release to feature better styles and flavors.

More low grade perfume than libation. Like using a Magic Tree air freshener as a tea bag. Almost as if a sub par beer was finished by straining it through a Garden Center planter at whatever crappy box store it was purchased at. Throw in a fetal stage pickle wedge and Wa-La! Straight butt!

Orange colored beer with a small white colored head.

Smell is cucumber, hibiscus and strong tea.
Tastes like the smell in a horrible way. No three flavors could combine to make a concoction this foul. Worst beer I have tasted since Super Brew 15. Foul stuff!

Mouthfeel is water.

Overall Good God does this suck! So bad that is will cause you mental scars. Don’t buy this or put it in your mouth.

Hicu from magic hat ... Brewed with cucumber and hibiscus, ale. Darker than I thought it would be. Rich cucumber aroma on the nose. Gives a refreshing invite. Strange taste of the hibiscus and cucumber.... Light. Semi crisp. After taste is a bit rough. Makes me think of cleaning supplies, or a early summer day, grass wet with dew.

Overall - I wouldn't buy a 6pk or a single btl again. Not mad that bought a btl to try, but not worth the $2 it cost. Don't try this beer unless you want to be let down.
