Ourtoberfest in BN Glass


Beer Log: Right now

State: Relaxed


Magic Hat Hex Ourtoberfest

Drinking this copper colored beer in my new Brewing Network Imperial Pint glass. Nose is a rustic somewhat earthy caramel malt. Lord only knows what the mad Hatters put in this beer. A rather malty beer that somehow exploded with flavor then went down so smooth (no homo) it was like the beer imploded, but in a good way. I think there is something like a sour fruit that actually caused my mouth to pucker a good 3/4 of the way on my tongue. Malt is tasting more white sugary as I get used to the whole thing, maybe some brown sugar with it. I wouldn't be surprised if there was some random fruit in this thing like Ms. Pac-Man. After visiting the website you see it right there: Cherry Wood Smoked Malt. Boo-yah. The malted rye gives it some pepper as well, which comes through in the aftertaste. Low to moderate hops. I can dig it, but wish I had a cigar with this one. High 3 Stars for the beer that oddly works for me as an Oktoberfest.

Thanks for reading the blog Mr. Keith. Hope it helps. Any luck getting any Alesmith or De Struise in Texas by the way?

I work for a big distributor (Ben E. Keith) and we don't carry those brews. We do have Magic Hat though, and they make some pretty respectable beer.

Yeah. I didn't know if you were the man himself. Glad to see you all are reading my blog. Feel free to share the link. I see that you all carry Magic Hat, and I imagine you all are the reason we finally have some MH here in Houston. Thanks for that.

I got one of their Spring Fever variety packs a couple months ago and liked all the beer.

I posted you review of Hex on our FB page. http://www.facebook.com/benekeith?ref=ts
