|Magic Hat Roxy Rolles
Pours a translucent amber-orange, good head retention and lacing.
Substantial hop flavor throughout, slight bitterness with hints of pine,
light spice and citrus fruits. Some subtle caramel malt in the finish brings
about a smooth balance. Creamy and smooth; one of the better offerings
from Magic Hat.
Overall rating: Good
Be sure to use a tulip glass to enjoy all of this beer's
complexity. The brew is clear yellow in color with a huge foamy
head that lasts. First sip highlights clean pale malts layered
with yeasty spiciness,peppery and light lemon zest. Tart green
apples, honey, follow with a light hop bitterness at the back.
Sparkling carbonation, smooth alcohol subtext; it finishes
clean, with a champagne like dryness.
Overall Rating - Excellent
|Harviestoun Bitter & Twisted
This beer opens with a nose of grapefruit,
bittering hops, and a bit of the bready
malts. Fairly light bodied with modest
carbonated. A lemony zest quickly
dominates in a grapefruit/orange
background. There is a very nice bittering
Hints of cracked grain huskiness lingering
around the edges. A decent session beer.
Overall ratting - above average.
