Super behind on the beer reviews. How can I call my blog Drinkin' and Modelin' when there isn't any booze?! Here is one from way back in Austin (though I can get this beer here in Kalamazoo as well).
Magic Hat Brewing Company - #9
Beer Type: Fruit/Vegetable beer
Appearance: 12 oz. brown bottle with a big orange and pink/red number 9 on the label. Beer poured a light golden color (maybe a little orange?) with a nice thick head.
Smell: Apricots first, followed by a little malt and hops.
First Drink: Sweet apricot and fruit flavors followed by a mild honey aftertaste. Interesting...
Mouthfeel: Pretty light overall and nicely carbonated.
Last Drink: A bit more hops and bitterness coming through now.
Drinkability: Hard to quantify this beer as "drinkable" or not. It is strange and I like it ... I think.
Notes: Magic Hat makes some odd beers but I don't fault them for it. Here's hoping they manage to keep it up!
Verdict: 3 out of 5. Not quite enough going on to keep me really interested in this beer.
