BEER INFO

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

An orang-ish amber brew with little head. The smell includes a hint of honey and a floral note but otherwise nothing stands out. Taste includes a hint of malt, a hint of bitter hops, a hint of fruit, but is very uninspiring. The most you can say is that there is a lot of carbonation. Overall, an average to slightly under-average beer.
