The roasty character in a light beer is unusual IMHO, and all else aside, this beer made me sit up and take notice.

Doesn't happen too often.

*The magic hat beers I have had before SUCKED, I was by no means predisposed to like this beer*

It's not been in Memphis before. I was walkin around downtown and found a hole in the wall I'd never been in before, and the beer coolers were full of great beers. Several I've not seen in this area before. Definitely going back to have another hex and try some more new beers!

It's fall already! My first time trying Hex and I loved it, enough to search it on HBT. Hopefully I won't be disappointed with my Oktoberfest in the next couple of weeks. It's nice that they list all of the ingredients on the magic hat website. I may just have to try adding some cherry wood smoked malt or apollo hops to my next batch. I've never used a smoked malt before (or tasted a beer with smoked malt that I know of), but I imagine that's what's giving this some of the unique flavor. Last time I picked up such a great beer was Lagunitas Lucky 13 .alt.

Hate to hear that. I noticed last year it was a little off, and haven't grabbed it yet because it's still 90+ degrees here and not in that mood yet. It was always one of my favorites.

Just realized the orignal post was a couple of years old. Need more coffee
