Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 06-09-1998

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 sort of dry, crisp, refreshing, not-quite pale ale. #9 is really impossible to describe because there's never been anything else quite like it.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

poured from the 12 oz bottle into my new Belgium goblet:

A: just a bit darker than amber, extra clarity, modest bone white head that settled quick and left NO lacing

S - sweet, and very understated on the nose

T - hmmm not bad but not that good either, just a bit of taste overall! no hops at all far as I can tell, really just a touch of malitness

M ; not bad at all! crisp - I think this is what macros wish they were

D VERY drinkable, consider this a session beer.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Light Gold see-through color with a small head.

Smell: Fruity smell up front.

Taste: Nice taste that matches the smell. Fruity, but also similar to a pale ale.

Mouthfeel: Goes down smooth.

Overall: One of my favorite beers from Magic Hat, easy to drink and taste like a pale ale with fruit. A go to beer from Magic Hat
