deVEILed

Magic Hat, South Burlington, VT

This is a very tasty amber coming out of Vermont.  Again, Magic Hat is putting out a fall seasonal brew, along with their Saison. This brew comes in at a low 5.2% abv, making for a great beer to enjoy several of over the course of a cool autumn evening.

Aroma: Strong malty aroma, with hints of dark cherry and plum. Not much hop aroma.

Appearance: Deep red-brown in color, with a light visible carbonation. The head was light and pale in color, and fell quickly to a pale film over the beer.

Flavor: Light malty notes on the palate, with a strong bitterness overhanging the flavor. The end tastes of sweet maltiness.

Mouthfeel: Light, with a pleasant amount of carbonation. It flows well, without being cloying or too easy on the palate.

Overall impression: This brew is enjoyable and rather drinkable, with the perfect amount of malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness.

Final Impressions:

Hops:                   mug rating 3

Malts:                   mug rating 3

Flavor:                  mug rating 3.5

Overall:                mug rating 3.5

Label:                    mug rating 4

So you know what to look for…
