Magnum is about as boring and lacking in interesting hop oils as you can get. Could still be a fun experiment, though.
So, here is my feedback.
The experiment went fine, but nothing more.
Base malt gives the backbone to the hop to shine, except that there isn't so much there to shine
The average bitterness math went well, the beer is balanced.
The principal characteristics of this beer are: grassy, a bit spicy, oily. Maybe too much "fresh" aroma from the fresh hops than I expected. I could give it a 6,5 over 10, which means I will enjoy the results of the experiment but I won't repeat it again.
Cheers from Italy!
