Magic Hat #9 Not Quite Pale Ale

For the longest time, I was put off by the odd label and name of this beer. The whole thing just didn't appeal to me. Finally, one weekend I decided to pick it up and discover what makes this beer popular. I didn't read the packaging properly and was a bit surprised with the apricot taste. I'm not a fan of apricot flavoring in beverages other than iced tea, tasting it in beer was a not terrible but not something I'd go and buy regularly. This is a pretty light beer both in taste and in color. I think this would be a good summer beer for light beer drinkers who may find great wisdom and advice printed in bottlecaps.
