12 oz bottle. I’ll always be thankful to Magic Hat because they were one of my "gateway" beers out of the land of BMC. #9 is a good solid beer that has nice fruit tones with apricot being quite present throughout. Drinks easy on a summer day and makes for a good session beer.

It is the flagship in my opinion of a Great brewery. Unfortunatley, I feel like I’ve had too much of it, and have grown tired of this beer, though it is always a great fall back option and comfort when seen at a bar.

Straw colored and poured with almost no head. The smell of apricots take over in this brew. A malty lightly carbonated offering with a slight hop and apricot flavor in the finish. Overall a decent fruit beer on a hot summer day.

This is just a great beer. One of the flagship beers from Magic Hat, this can be drank during any season in vast quantities. Easily the best that Magic Hat makes, and the one of the best ales you will have.

Bottle. Hoppy-ish taste with a nice apricot aftertaste. Good for a fruity beer. Good beer to have a six pack session with.

Very low carbonation. Ginger ale color. Smooth start with a hoppy bite midway that accompanies a small explosion of cloves that descends into a smooth, almost watery finish. Very drinkable!

Magic Hat #9 proves to be a refreshing beer. Drank this through 18 holes at Bali Hai Golf Club in Las Vegas and won $360. Definitely will be back for more!

Bottle: I’m pretty sure the fruit I’m tasting is... peach... maybe apricot???
Light amber, thick head, VERY fruity.
Lots of worse beers in the world.
