4/18/12 Hanging out with my Brother and Magic Hat Vinyl

So over the weekend my brother stopped by and we were having a couple different beers and I decided to sample and review a Magic Hat Vinyl that I got from a colleague at work. The temperature was 42.3 degrees with a large 3" head and a rocky light brown head appearance. The head lacing was excellent with a slow head dissipation and a little carbonation. The beer clarity was normal with a copper color and an earthy barley taste and aroma. The flavor was moderate with a short finish and a dry mouth feel. The tongue hit was toward the front with excellent body lacing. Overall it was a pretty decent beer but just a little to much bitterness for my taste so I gave it a B+. I would still definitely recommend trying it though. Thanks for reading and as always drink responsibly.
