1/5 rDev -70.5%
Magic Hat #9 might be the worst beer I have ever tasted. It is bland, and the flavoring they add is simply horrendous. I've noticed this is the "cool" beer to drink in college towns. I don't think it is because it tastes good to certain people, I think they just like to say they are drinking a Magic Hat #9.
But really, this beer pours a hazy orange/yellow color. I have had this, or people I know have had this, and every time it smells like it is skunked to me, but that is how the brew always smells.
But, I do appreciate how this could be considered some sort of a gateway beer from your coors and miller lights to a better beer!

Had this from a mixed pack that my wife bought.
Smells like a dry apricot.
Flat and uninteresting flavor and mouthfeel.
I thought id give this a try since my wife seems to like it. Maybe her review will balance out my glaringly bad review.
Is the #9 in reference to how many attempts it took for them to get to this flavor profile? Maybe they should have a #10. Just sayin.

12oz bottle, best by Feb 2010. Pours light amber with a small off-white head, tiny spots of lacing, maintains a weak cap.
Aroma is orange kool-aid, orange gatorade, fruity shampoo, smells VERY artificial.
Flavor is orange rind, almost like Flinstones vitamins or generic orange tums. Despite this, it feels like this is giving me heartburn. Blech.
Mouthfeel is oily, a little sticky, medium carbonation.
Pretty nasty overall, gonna go put a PBR in the freezer, this is going down the drain. Yeah this is at the end of its run, but still technically within the "best by" range. Undrinkable, artificial, nasty crap.
