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.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass

A- pours a slightly hazy shade of light orange with a solid, one finger white head. Lots of carbonation. Nice.

S- artificial smelling apricot aroma and straw. Uh oh.

T- mildly sweet apricot flavor as well as a tad bit of bitterness. Not a lot going on here, but it's not abrasive and pretty easy drinking

M- thin body, bordering on the medium side of things

O- it's not great by any means, but it's not a bad beer. Nice gateway.
