Overview

Magic Hat G-Thing from Magic Hat Brewing offers a Ginger Spice Ale experience, boasting a lively ginger kick followed by a sturdy malt foundation. With subtle roasty undertones and gentle hop bitterness, it transitions into a tranquil cinnamon spiciness as the malt flavors fade away.

Appearance

The beer pours a dark brown hue with a noticeable absence of head.

Aroma

A mild blend of gingerbread and dark roast aromas, with hints of grain.

Taste

The flavor profile features prominent ginger root notes, accompanied by a subtle hint of curry and cola.

Mouthfeel

On the thinner side of medium-bodied, with modest carbonation. The beer earns praise for its appealing name and label design.

Critique

While Magic Hat G-Thing presents an enticing holiday spice profile, it falls short in terms of body, lacking the robustness typically associated with holiday ales. Overall, it fails to deliver the expected richness and depth of flavor.
