Pours clear with a nice two finger, white fluffy foam. Some retention but not much. A little bit of lacing.
Aroma is full of a lot of sweet fruit. I thought of a fruit salad with a beer thrown on top of it. Not one fruit, not citrus, but a cornucopia of sweet fruit. Seems to be some grainy or bready malt to boot.
Taste is fruit and bready malt. The fruit I really can't make out again in terms of single or a couple of fruits.
Mildly carbonated, light mouth feel, with it seeming to be a little on the watery side.
The mystic powers of magic hat are at work here as this beer is a little different. Definitely a refreshing and crisp beer for a warm day. Expect the unexpected. Enjoy!
Aroma: Mysterious sweet, maybe floral. Totally unique. Initial taste impression: The unique aroma dominates first taste. Smooth, rich, and deep taste. Overall: One of a kind drinking experience, and a very respectable beer. Like MH says in their description, "Not so Pale Ale", it's not a cliche, it's accurate for this crisp and refreshing brew. Hops are there in the background, but like all great beers, the ultimate goal is to balance the ingredents into a mix that\'s a greater sum than individual parts. Now if I had one lingering doubt it would be #9's unique taste, and if after drinking more than one bottle I'd find this ale to be a gimicky "one bottle"...not a beer to drink on a regular basis. I need to get on the "business end" of a twelver(pack) and report back, but I've got to say I very much look forward to experiencing that sometime this summer."
