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.

Moderately cloudy amber-tinted orange. Offwhite head makes a brief appearance. Soft, simple, inviting but dry nose that suggests apricots and flowers. Initial flavor replicates aromas but then diffuses disappointingly fast, becoming watery and almost flavorless, leading to a very halfheartedly bitter finish. Not much going on in this one.

Magic Hat #9...someone handed me a pint of this at the bar and said it was "kick a$$"...wait or did they say they were "going to kick my a$$"? Hmm...no matter. How do explain this beer? Ok, here goes...take a Yeungling lager, add a dash of hops, then add some apricot/peach flavor. That’s it, that’s the secret of Magic Hat #9.

Poured to a hazy gold, with a nice white head. Aroma was certainly fruity, and the taste followed. It was overly fruity (apricot?), and was decent, but not memorable. Dropped off the palate right away - perhaps it was too watery. Recommended by the cashier at my local liquor store, I’ve got to discount his rec’s in the future.

Has somewhat of a dish soap aroma. Nice appearance. Not a bad taste, rather interesting. If you are in to fruit beer this is pretty good , I guess.

Interesting flavor with some peach and apricot. Tasted better second time around. Overall quite smooth.

Bottle pours to golden/orange body with minimal head that dissipates quickly. Overall this beer smells and looks average but something about it puts it just a notch above average for me. A pretty decent brew.

Yellow pour, white foamy head... head sticks around a while, too. Aroma of yeast, slight corn-like smell. Fruits like peach, pineapple, honeydew melon perhaps? Apricot, tangerine. Taste... sweet, soft tartness. Slight saltiness. Palate... moderate to high carbonation... moderately clean finish.

I have had this in the past on tap, however the rating was performed on a bottle. Nice pour with golden color. Very dissapointing aroma. Smelled somewhat like yeast, not pleasent. Fruity taste with citrousy overtone. Was pretty lame.

Pours very hazy and amber/gold in color. Very little head that dissipates almost immediately. The aroma is pretty straightforward: hops and apricot. The taste is about the same...malty with apricot. There is virtually no depth, and there is so little malt/hop in the actual taste that I found myself thinking i was tasting dried apricots soaked in a low-concentration rubbing alcohol. Not enjoyable, and certainly not something I’d recommend.
