Magic Hat Brewing Company
Vermont, United States

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.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass. This beer was roughly the color of apple juice with a short-lived undistinguished head. The beer both smells and tastes of apricots. The pallet feel is light, sweet, and with slight hop bitterness.

Number nine. Number nine. Number nine. Again and again. Apologies to the Beatles but the point is that this would be a pleasant, light session beer after mowing the lawn on a hot summer day.
