Beer: Magic Hat #9
Brewer: Magic Hat Brewing Company
Rating: *** (7.3 of 10)
Comments: Enjoyed a pint of this potion at Doyle’s over the weekend and found it an agreeable if not remarkable beer. The aroma and taste are sweetened by apricot, making it yet another in a parade of fruity beers I’ve been sampling lately. The apricot is balanced by a hoppy flavor so it’s not overwhelmingly sweet. The beer is a nice amber color with a good sized head and decent lacing on the glass. I think I’ve had this beer in a bottle before and not been all to impressed but the on-tap version is more palatable. Magic Hat Brewing Company is in Burlington, VT so I’m calling for another road trip.
