Apricot flavouring
A Beer Cloaked in Secrecy An ale whose mysterious and unusual palate will swirl across your tongue and ask more questions than it answers. A beer brewed clandestinely and given a name whose meaning is never revealed. Why #9? Why, indeed. A sort of dry, crisp, fruity, refreshing, not-quite pale ale. #9 is really impossible to describe because there’s never been anything else quite like it. Fermented with our 150 year old strain of top-fermenting English yeast.

This "fruit beer," which it is not truely at all, is rather lousy. In most pubs this beer is sold as a lager or a brown ale. From the moment it touches one’s tongue, an immediate spalsh of perfume is noted. The uninformed novice may understand that scent/taste to be "fruitiness." I fouthrightly disagree. The odors and flavors are much more flowery than fruity. I would imagine a better flavor could be attained from drinking old rose water from a vase. This beer leaves a soapy coating on the roof of the taster’s mouth as well. Overall, considering the pricetag on a pint of this in Philadelphia is over five dollars, this is a beer to avoid.

Super sweet beer, main taste of apricot and honey. thin beer with a real clean feel. Just a little too sweet for my taste though.

Just like the description; not sure what the overall taste is other than delish! Slightly toasty with a hint of citrus on the nose. Light orange/red color, head is there. Unusually refreashing, a medium slightly oily texture. Very enjoyable and worth searching out.

Porus slightly hazy orange color with a quickly deminishing head. Aromas of apricot and slight citrus hop. Has a thin palate, a bit fruity, prickly carbonation "bite" has a mass produced flavor so to speak. Getting better as it warms up, more malt aromas and flavor comming through. Not bad but nothing special. Im not sure what all the hype is about.

What can I say? I sampled this one at Barleys in Asheville. I liked it alot! Nice Apricot undertones with a hint of hops. I agree it would be a great summer beer but all in all I really liked the taste and palate of this beer.

Pale orange with a slight haze, nice white head. mild apricot aroma, slightly malty and acidic, fruity (apricot), with a mild bitter finish. typical magic hat, not great, but drinkable. (good beer when hosting a party many "beer drinkers" like it)

i have heard only good things about this brewer before i had ever found it, and this was the first flavore i tried. the apricot wasnt overwhelming, as in other fruit beers ive had. definetly will pick this one up again.

A pale copper color with a small white head dissipating quickly. No lace prevelant. Smell is yeasty with a good flowery hop sense as well as hints of fruits with other wheaty feelings. Medium mouthfeel highly carbonated. Fruity but not distinguishable. Chewy hop flavors but not overpowering. Not a beer I’m going to drink more than once. Dissapointed as this is my first try of a beer from the Magic Hat Brewery.
