COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Gold pour , typical head after aggresive pour. Sweet apricot nose; hops faint. Smells like fruit. Good carbonation. Malty start, sweet wheat, apricot finish, with noticible hop character. Palate is nothing special. Not a hearty beer, yet it is not refreshing. Good festival beer, good drink all day at a cook out, or at bonnaroo.

I truly enjoy Magic Hat #9. The subtle hints of apricot make this a great warm weather drink. Since I spend a lt of time in Vermont I can drink this a lot and I do.

Good but not great. I don’t really see what all the fuss is about. I can’t even really taste the apricots that much. It is definitely more like a lager to me.

What I like most about this beer is its clean aftertaste. Apricot taste was a bit strong for me at first, but it slowly settled. Great on a hot day.

Aroma of caramel, nuts, white foam. Clear, dark amber appearance with hints of red. Flavor explodes with heavy sweetness- great for one pull - maybe two. Wouldn’t drink it all night. Delightful dessert or a starter beer. Full body, flat, long finish.

Nothing to write home about. Not a beer I would look for, but I wouldn’t turn one down.

Pours a slightly cloudy medium gold. Thin head. Slightly fruity aroma. Dry and a bit fizzy on the tongue. A pretty decent beer which I may have enjoyed more with an orange slice.

I have always been a fan of a citrusy beer, and this is one of the best I have had.

not a great beer by any stretch, come on now it is a note quite pale ale with apricot? It is not my cup of time, but I could see some "alternative" beer drinkers be into this type of thing

A beautiful ale with hints of apricots! Best when chilled, and in a glass.
