Odd Notion (Winter 08)

Well as usual you get an interesting beer from Magic Hat. 12oz single extracted from the winter mixed twelve pack.
Honey, hazy, ruddy pour with a VERY large amount of debris in the glass. Not dense enough to fall to the bottom, it swirls around in the body of the beer. A touch of lace but virtually no head retention.
Definite sweetness in the nose and this carries into the taste. A sharp, almost sweet and sour note to the beer. Clean and tangy. Cuts across the palate swiftly with a real, sweetened citrusy character. The honey seems to manifest itself as a high alcohol taste, almost like a Euro, slick high ABV lager.
Well, it’s certainly different and I don’t dislike it but to be honest the two or three that one finds in the mixed winter pack is going to be enough for me.
