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 theres never been anything else quite like it. Fermented with our 150 year old strain of top-fermenting English yeast.

Very fruity and hoppy... interesting taste, took a little while to adjust. I liked it.

12 oz. bottle. Pours an orange/amber color with average head. Smelled of hops, a little pine/citrus. Tasted the same, sweet with a light to medium body.

Apricot, Apricot, Apricot oh how you taste look and smell. Im not sure why your named nine but your a little flat but a suitable salut for the summer. If you like a little more fruit in your flute than #9 is a magic hat, but Im straying away from this style.

Draft. Beer came with a small cream colored head. Apricot aromas and some slight hop background. Has a apricot and malt sweetness to the flavor. Very light hop. Some soapy ness in the finish. An average beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of Magic Hats most popular, I didnt really care for it that much. Its a fruity beer, and has kind of a weird taste to it. I didnt find it all that refreshing either. Has a nice looking color to it, so at least it looks nice.

Like a poorly made Budweiser brewed out of a used garbage can. Just awful. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A great beer brought back from Vermont for me. Nice peachy color, light, but full of flavor.

Huh? Huh? This beer is weird and I dont think I like it. The taste is very fruity. Peach, maybe? Other folks have suggested apricot. either way, this is probably an acquired taste that I have no interest in developing.

Aroma was nothing too special, other than a bit of apricot in there. The pour was again not too special. A golden orange slightly cloudy brew. The flavor was refreshing and delicious. A slightly sweet apricot that simply put blended perfectly with the...well... beer flavoring. I dont think of this as a fruity beer, but more that the apricot makes the beer taste like what Ive always wanted plain lagers or ales to taste like. I dont care if that makes sense, cause after this Im floating on cloud... well you can probably guess.

A bit of fruit taste in this slightly hoppy beer. Not bad at all. cereal, citrus notes.
