COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Apricot flavouring
A Beer Cloaked in Secrecy An ale whose mysterious and unusual palate will swirl across your tongue and ask more questions than it answers. A beer brewed clandestinely and given a name whose meaning is never revealed. Why #9? Why, indeed. A sort of dry, crisp, fruity, refreshing, not-quite pale ale. #9 is really impossible to describe because there’s never been anything else quite like it. Fermented with our 150 year old strain of top-fermenting English yeast.

Happy Apricot hazy brew. Like a flavored malt drink but isn’t with very strong and distinctive taste but with beer body. Goes down like soda pop and becomes more watery with the next. Enjoyable.

orangy gold body with light off white head. Sweet aroma of fruits however this was very light on the nose. Somewhat watery on the palate with underlying sweetness and light hop bitters.

beerbill (3599) - Laurel, New York, USA - AUG 28, 2006
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium gold with a moderate white head. Light aroma of apricot and a touch of citrus. At first, I did not find this beer all that flavorful. As the beer warmed a bit, the apricot flavors came out of hding as did some hops citrus. Somewhat bitter finish, but not excessively so.

Scubatrip (609) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2006
On tap, pours a nice, pale orange color with a thing white head that leaves nice lacing down the entire glass. Aroma and taste is predominantly of apricots, with some other light fruit flavors. Light, smooth, and easy to drink, goes well with a hot day.

theshocker (329) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 25, 2006
Straw-colored, large white head with huge bubbles fades quickly. Citrus, spice in the nose. Fruity flavor. Rasperry, lemon, grapefruit. Crisp, lager-like. Dry. Fairly enjoyable, great on a hot afternoon.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2006
Like many tasters noted, there’s an apricot or pear presence in the nose and flavour, but I found it somewhat artificial and soapy. The dry fruit taste and sudsy palate just wasn’t working for me on this night. Disappointing.

Casteel420 (59) - Bristol, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2006
(bottle) Aroma almost knocked me over or gave me a headache. It tastes more like a fruit beer than a pale ale, with definite apricot-citrus overtones. Overall, a decent beer that I wouldn’t want to drink too much of.

on tap at Mellow Mushroom, Raleigh. Deep gold, intense aroma but not too strong. Nice flavor, complex, but was hard to pick out much individually.
