Now that the rose is dead, I had to do a new daily blog. I currently only have 6 beers or 6 days lined up for this. But there is a good chance I’ll find some more beer to try.
First, let me say that I hate winter. I know it has it’s purpose, but that doesn’t mean I have to embrace it. With that in mind, fall is not my favorite season. Mostly because I know it’s followed by winter. This year, I fought autumn. I refused to acknowledge it, until the seasonal brews started showing up. It’s hard to deny that the seasons are changing when the seasonal brews arrive.
So, I have picked 6 seasonal brews to taste and review for a daily post. Warning: I am not an official taster. I just know what I like, so I won’t be talking too much about hops or barley or whatever. So, don’t be hatin’.
Number 1 is Magic Hat Hex: Ourtoberfest.
Being a creative, visual type person, I like a good label. The label on this beer is pretty nice. It’s good and halloweeny. A little dark and gothic with a red background, black text and line drawings.
I really like this beer. It has a very hoppy scent. This concerned me. Often, if they smell like that, they are a little bitter with dark after taste. It has a beautiful amber color when poured. It’s a little cloudy, but not foamy. I know it’s sacrilege, but I don’t like a heavy head on my brew. I also don’t like meringue. So, what can I say? I’m a weirdo.
The first sip was crisp and clean. No bitter aftertaste at all. It actually has a slightly sweet finish. I’d drink more than one of these. To me that’s the ultimate test. In fact, I see a six pack in my future. Don’t worry, I won’t be drinking it all in one sitting.
