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.

By far Magic Hat’s worst offering. The apricot flavour is over powering.

If you know someone who doesn’t like experimenting with beers, this is a good one to start off with. Light and fruity, this is a funky brew that can make any chick feel like trendy starlette.

Eventhough my rating is not glowing, I think this is worth a try. I am not a big fan of fruit beers, but this is an interesting one. It is not overly artificial tasting. I think if they used more hops (for both bittering and aroma) this could be good.

(Bottle) Must have got a bad bottle? Strange aroma... hops but some odd Hawaiian Punch additive. Pours copper with dissipated white head. Finishes dry. Average.

Not too impressed with this one. Tasted like a pale ale with a slight hint of apricots. Some apricots in the nose. Overall not too much goin on here.

I think they call this their IPA. Very bland and average. It’s like the lite beer of craft beers. I’m glad I didn’t pay for it, the magic hat rep did.

This was an oddity. I think I got a bad bottle because I tasted no fruit. There was some wheatiness to it as well as some malt and hops. The pour was a clear orange with no head. Put this beer back in the magic hat and make it disappear.

[Tap, February 2007] Hazy yellow pour with small head. Aroma is floral. Flavor is heavily floral, very slight citrus. Altogether unrefined taste. Finish is bitter but not so much in the hop sense.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2007
Draft. Aroma: Light citrus, biscuit malt, and floral hops. Appearance: Medium golden in color and clear. Off-white head was medium sized and frothy. Decent lacing. Flavor: Biscuity malt, apricot, light citrus, and floral hops. Low bitterness. Fairly clean finish. Palate: Medium-low bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: ZZzzzzz. Nothing of interest in this beer at all. Neither bad nor good.

Courtesy boboski. Crystal clear orange/gold with a disappearing white cap. Aroma of apricot and a faint crisp graininess. Same flavor- apricot, grainy malt, and crisp hops- none of it intense. Medium/light body, balaced carbonation. Poundable, but not much to it.
