Pours a clear copper color, with carbonation and an average head. Minimal lacing. The aroma consists mainly of the added fruit flavors (apricot) and the hops.For the taste, #9 is a decent pale ale with the fruit infusion. In my opinion, it is not overly sweet/cloying as some have claimed, nor does it taste overtly artificial. It's a very light beer that can be quite a refreshment if you're in the mood for it. Personally, I dislike many flavored beers, such as Cherry Wheat by Sam Adams, and flavored lambics. (sugar bombs) Despite this, like I said, I enjoy this beer. For many (myself included) this is a great gateway beer to Magic Hat and microbrews in general. It taught me that beer can taste quite different from the BMC staples of American suburbia. Overall this is highly recommended on a summer's day, if you have a sweet tooth, or if you want to introduce someone to craft brewing for the first time.
