It's magic hat #9....we all know it. It's a good brew. If there's nothing else good on tap, grab this

This one is awful! Doesn't taste anything but yeast!! Citrus and fruity but too sharp yeast flavor. Never going to try again!

I try to drink this every time it is brought to a gathering just to not be a snot but this is kind of yucky. Artificial peach and too much yeast.

Not quite sure what to make of this yeasty, malty concoction. It wasnít bad, but it wasnít good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a stemless tulip glass (Brooklyn Brewery glass). Aroma is quite floral and a little fruity, but still smells crisp and a bit bready like a beer should. Deep golden hue is very inviting, but the head receded very quickly. Taste is earthy and floral right away at the front of the sip. The middle of the sip is where the fruitiness appears. The finish reveals a tiny bitter bite, but leaves you with a smooth, sweet aftertaste (aftertastes aren‚Äôt always bad!). For this style of beer, the mouthfeel is in that perfect, middle-of-the-road range. Not too light, but definitely not a heavy beer. Quite impressed with this beer. It‚Äôs a very balanced brew and would accommodate a wide range of entrees if paired with a meal! (Too bad I already ate). "Never turn your back on your beer."

A amber color ale with fruit and earth aromas followed by the sweetness of apricots. The finish is a bit flat. Overall, slightly better than average for my tastes.

From 12 oz bottle, variety pack, had this on numerous occasions, but Iím making effort in 2015 to actually leave some comments
Aroma: Caramel, Citrus, Fruitiness, Apricots
Appearance: Amber, clear to hazy, white head
Taste: Heavy sweet, medium bitter
Palate: light body, slick texture, average carbonation, long bitter/apricot finish
Overall: Tastes like what I expect a Pale Ale with Apricots to taste like. Nothing crazy, but itís a solid fruit ale. Nice clear and a bit fruity. I can see why itís a gateway beer into other styles. Itís a bit too sweet for me and Iím not a fan of apricots, but itís really not a bad beer.
