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.

Bottle pour into pint..Light goldenish/apricot hue..not much good stuff going on in the nose..like a cross between aromas of a wanna be fruit beer and a MBC offering..Major question is how does magic hat continue to sell so much of this because it is just a weak offering..

Bottle. Smells of apricots and oranges. Pours clean with no head; slightly translucent light orange color. Tastes fruity with a little space. It does a lot of good things but together they don’t add up to a good beer.

Rating #963 - February 10, 2014. $12.99 CAD for 6 341ml bottles at Coop (sale price). Did not know this was a fruit beer until opening, expectation of an APA may have resulted in lower than justifiable rating. But then again, I really don’t have to justify myself to you, internet. Pours a golden yellow with a bubbly white head. Aroma is sweetened apricot jelly, pale malt. Palate is more of the sugary apricot with some mild grassy, earthy hops. One of the worst apricot beers I’ve tried, way behind Alley Kat, Pyramid, St. Ambroise. Not impressive.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a caramel brown colored body, decent off white head dissipated very quickly, no lacing. The smell had apricot and malts. The taste was extremely sweet through fruits and malts, noted alcohol. The palate sat about a light to medium, semi-sessionable, alcohol felt, bland and watery aftertaste and finish. Overall, its decent for the style, I think Magic Hat did what they wanted. This is their flagship beer, but for me, probably won’t come back to, honestly not that thrilled.

De geur is heel goed, een echt abrikozenbier maar de smaak daarentegen is een serieuze tegenvaller.

Never has a beer’s aroma made me pour it out. I do not want to describe this catastrophe, for fear of reliving it. The flavor was sweet and pleasant.

This wasn't what I thought it was going to be. Fruity with a crisp finish. If I wanted alcohol in my fruit juice I'd make a mixed drink...

Robe blonde claire surmontée d’une mousse généreuse qui s’estompe lentement en dentelle. Arômes de pain et de malt. Âcre au goût, elle n’affiche que peu de richesse... et ou est le goût d’abricot???

Light golden-amber with minimal head that fazes out quickly. OK lacing, with aroma of fruit and sweetness. Taste is sweet and fruity(maybe apricot???), a little thin-bodied. Not too impressed, as I am not a fan of fruit beers.
