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.

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

Appearance: Amber/copper color. Filmy off-white head. Semi-translucent.

Aroma: Bready and a little yeasty. Not much aroma.

Taste: Not as sweet as I expected. Nice balance of hops and malt but both are too mellow to contribute much. Almost tastes like a lager. The apricot taste comes out the more I drink.

Mouthfeel: A little watery. Pretty drinkable and almost thirst quenching.

Final Thoughts: Tastes like a scottish ale. Gets more interesting as it warms but not much to this one.
