A blog for dum ideas that are too long to fit on my Facebook status

Beer #24 – Magic Hat Pistil

Pistil, Magic Hat Brewing CompanyVermont, United States of A
Herbed/Spiced Beer,  4.50 %ABV

Aroma: Grassy, fruity and lemony, sweet on the back.

Appearance: Light, clear golden, small head of white foam.

Flavor: Nice light hops up front, hint of sweetness and malts and a grassy finish.  Not as much fruity taste as the nose would suggest.

Mouthfeel: Incredibly light, carbonation isn’t low, but not too intense.  Feels very airy.

Overall: Definitely a summer session beer, but I think it lacks a little in flavor.  I could drink a bunch on a hot day but my palette would probably prefer something else with a little more profile.  For the ABV, not a bad effort.
