Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a "balloon" glass.
Deep amber in color, with a moderate head of off-white foam.
Aroma-Subtle, spicy malt
Taste-Toasted malt, muddled spiciness, soft hop note.
Overall, nothing to knock your socks off, just a decent, middle-of-the-road amber ale.

DATE TASTED: November 14, 2013... GLASSWARE: Howard's Pub pint... OCCASION: Game of Thrones reading Thursday--chapters in the Vale... APPEARANCE: dark ruby red/black velvet body--another sinister-looking attempt from this mixpack; off-color lunar craters of head that holds thickness; laces well... AROMA: for Magic Hat, surprisingly straight-forward in its malty aroma; roasted toffee and some astringent chemical brine (the glass?)...PALATE: low to medium-bodied with little activity in the mouth; a bit creamy, but not lactic...TASTE: flattened maltiness with a lingering aftertaste; elusive hops make this a thin, drinkable profile; sessionable with a buttery finish...OVERALL: undoubtedly, this most straight-forward Magic hat I've had--nearly everything from these guys has an odd twist or turn to tis profile, but this delivers a true ESB approximation; a bit thin overall, but serviceable...

An amber red ale with a very English ale taste. This one is certainly more hoppier than what you would see in traditional English ales. You get some smokiness due to the carmel malts. A nice session beer that suits the fall season and would buy again...
