Magic Hat #9: The Ninth Best Beer I Tried Yesterday
Now I have no idea what type of beer this is. I just know I've seen some documentaries and these Magic Hat blokes look like wild and crazy guys. So beer runner comes, and here's my beer! It comes out looking, well, fizzy and yellow. I was thinking it was a lager at first. I took a smell, and didn't detect much but a mild fruitiness. It's from Vermont, maybe it's maple syrup? I hear that's kind of their thing.
Then I drank it
What. The. Fuck.
Now, some people I know call me Jason "no fucking frut in my beer" Harris. Well this beer is apparently brewed with apricots. It starts with a very mild light lager taste (its an ale, I think??) Then finishes with a huge fruity aftertaste. Listen, putting an orange in your Blue Moon is one thing, but who is the asshole that decided it was a good idea to make your beer taste like fruit juice??
I loathe this beer. I don't even want to finish it. My friend got a Franziskaner Dunkel and smelling it made me shed a single tear for my beer sucking so hard. This beer is a chore. It tastes like juice that's gone bad.
Obviously I finished it, I'm not a fucking savage.
Beerhound Rating: F
See ya next pint, and I hope to god its soon to wash this taste out of my mouth.
