BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Magic Hat Brewing Company
Vermont, United States
magichat.net

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

12 oz. bottle with psychedelic label.

Brassy orange body; clear. Small, off-white, gauzy head. Nose of caramel, buttered toast, fresh flowers, orange zest, and floral hops. Toasted malt and some floral bitterness up front. Caramel and marmalade spread on toast come through mid-palate. Fruity-perfume quality (like pears mixed with chamomile). Light citrus in an otherwise floral hop finish. Lingering butterscotch. Moderate to light body. Lively feel. Refreshing, but not my type of pale ale.

Bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A minimal head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange copper color with good clarity and a slight vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Toasted malts, apricot, and pale malts.

Taste: Same as above. Nothing extraordinary here.

Mouthfeel: A bit smooth, refreshing, light bodied, low carbonation, and a little chewy.

Overall: Enjoyed over the years and such a simple beer. Cheers to a sunny day.
