Apricot, apricot, apricot, apricot, apricot, and oh yah some more apricot. Its good for that one time in summer, and other than that only sorority girls get it.

Poured to a hazy gold, with a nice white head. Aroma was certainly fruity, and the taste followed. It was overly fruity (apricot?), and was decent, but not memorable. Dropped off the palate right away - perhaps it was too watery.
Recommended by the cashier at my local liquor store, I’ve got to discount his rec’s in the future.

1.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Moderately cloudy amber-tinted orange. Offwhite head makes a brief appearance.
Soft, simple, inviting but dry nose that suggests apricots and flowers.
Initial flavor replicates aromas but then diffuses disappointingly fast, becoming watery and almost flavorless, leading to a very halfheartedly bitter finish.
Not much going on in this one.

Magic Hat #9...someone handed me a pint of this at the bar and said it was "kick a$$"...wait or did they say they were "going to kick my a$$"? Hmm...no matter. How do explain this beer? Ok, here goes...take a Yeungling lager, add a dash of hops, then add some apricot/peach flavor. That’s it, that’s the secret of Magic Hat #9.

Interesting flavor with some peach and apricot. Tasted better second time around. Overall quite smooth.

Has somewhat of a dish soap aroma. Nice appearance. Not a bad taste, rather interesting. If you are in to fruit beer this is pretty good , I guess.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2016 Yes, it is not "not quite pale" but still drinkable. Roasty malts, holiday baking dough, pineapple, and ends with a nice floral tone. Overall good, but too ’dark’.

I have had this in the past on tap, however the rating was performed on a bottle. Nice pour with golden color. Very dissapointing aroma. Smelled somewhat like yeast, not pleasent. Fruity taste with citrousy overtone. Was pretty lame.

Bottle pours to golden/orange body with minimal head that dissipates quickly. Overall this beer smells and looks average but something about it puts it just a notch above average for me. A pretty decent brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yellow pour, white foamy head... head sticks around a while, too.
Aroma of yeast, slight corn-like smell. Fruits like peach, pineapple, honeydew melon perhaps? Apricot, tangerine.
Taste... sweet, soft tartness. Slight saltiness.
Palate... moderate to high carbonation... moderately clean finish.
