#9 definitely used to better, as did Magic Hat in general. The #9 is just indicative of most of their bottled beers now; lame...

You think they've gotten worse, or you think your pallate has gotten more discriminating? For me, homebrewing and actually paying a lot of attention to what I'm drinking has completely changed how I perceive a lot of beers. It's hard to know whether I don't care for #9 now (but didn't mind it a few years ago) because something is different in the beer, or just in how I'm picking up the flavors.

I think they have gotten worse. There are some beers that I know haven't changed, but I don't like them because my tastes have changed. I repeatedly give Magic Hat second chances. I've been "keeping tabs" on #9 for about 6-7 years now. I actually have a sixtel of Magic Hat in my Sanyo, but its part of their Odd Notion series. I'd never allow #9 to take up precious kegerator space!

I liked the #9 when I tried it last fall. Liked it enough where I attempted a clone. It's certainly not the greatest beer ever, but it didn't suck. To each their own.
