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 thereís never been anything else quite like it. Fermented with our 150 year old strain of top-fermenting English yeast.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2008 From the bottle. I was expecting more sweetness and fruity flavor, but thankfully, they didnít over do it. One of the better fruit beers Iíve had. Originally, I rated this beer a little low, but I have come around to enjoy this beer a lot.

bobaidan (523) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - JUN 3, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2006 Pours an almost pink amber color with a smallish head. Aroma is of apricot. Flavor is light , and crisp with some fruity undertones. Not bad for a lighter beer.

You can knock "fruity" tastes in beer. And, admitedly, when you hear apricot and beer, things can get a bit scary. However, Magic Hat has done a nice job with this one. Makes for a great "Black Magic" underneath Guinness and is a great way to finish a night of drinking. Nice malty / apricot flavor.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear orange with thin white head that leaves only a ring in my glass. Nose is wheaty and yeasty with apricot and a touch of peaches. Flavor is dominated by apricot. Always tastes much better out of the bottle than on draft. Not too sweet; a good session beer.

Orangish coloring. It tasted like apricots and grass, I donít want to drink apricots or grass and that is what this was. Horrid, the worst beer I have ever had.

This beer is fresh, crisp, cool, sweet, and has everything that you could ever ask in a beer. There really arenít many words that can describe how good this beer is.

This is one of my favorite standard beers, and Iím so glad itís finally available in WV! They even just put it on at the Moose in Martinsburg! Refreshing and easy drinking, this is a great session beer, with perfect balance, and perfect lacing, and a great finish!

Also on draught at Jet Rock in the Philadelphia airport (Terminal B, I believe). A wheaty, apricot thing my wife ordered. Good enough, I suppose. Not as good as DFH Aprihop. Better than Pyramid Apricot Weizen.

12oz bottle. Hazy and orange colored. Slightly golden and pink grapefruit juice hue. Spotty white head. Apricot and peach nose. Citrus and tons of different fruits. Initial dry and slightly bitter flavor. Then the sweet honeyish flavors come through. Then the cornucopia of fruit flavors. Of course, apricots and peaches. But there are other notes of orange, lemon and lime, slight grapefruit and plumes. The finish is crisp and sharp. The hops are citrusy and dry. Tart and sour flavors intermingle with sweet and sugary nuances. This is definitely tasty, and the fruit flavors are enhanced by the dry finish.

This is my personal favorite MH brew. It has a brown-like ale pour. It smells of hops and apricot...aprihops. This is a great pale and has a smooth taste that all can enjoy.
