Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

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.

A nice amber ale colour with medium carbonation
Smells like raspberry
Tastes like cough syrup, not in a good way
Overall this isn't very pleasing to the sense of taste at all, if their was a date on the bottle I could maybe tell whether or not it's been sitting on a shelf for too long, but there's no date and I can't tell

this is probably an unfair rating. I do not enjoy IPA and expected this to be a more earthy darker lager. It was crisp and weak in that amber that I enjoy. It did burst with flavor just not the flavor I enjoy. If you love IPA's this is close with being called an IPA

Poured gold with a barely-there head. The bottle suggests the beer is a bit more complex than it ended up being... but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Smelled like apricots, taste followed suit with some floral notes as well. It's a crisp, easy to drink beer, all in all, I'd drink it again.

Magic Hat's #9 Craft beer has a strong essence of sour apricot with a slight malt taste. The aftertaste is not great. Taste's very old fashioned. It is not very carbonated either with a pretty small head. I'm not a fan of the bottle design either, though the beer has got a great color to it.
