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.

Slightly cloudy Amber-orange brew. Average foamy white head. Very sweet fruity aroma, like mixed berries. Bitter raspberry flavor. Initially has a fizzy feel that really isn’t too pleasing. If it wasn’t there this would be a very nice fruit beer.

MadIndian (2720) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2007 Bottle, pours a hazy orange with a weak head. Smells of fruit, like a peach. Taste was thin. It’s just ok. Not for me.

From bottle. Pours clear dull orange with white head. Nose is perfumey apricot. Flavor is weak candy apricot, a cheap version though. Body is thin with not much of a finish. Too much fake apricot and not much else.

[Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival] Hazy golden. Rich apricot jam aroma. Sweet with rounded mouthfeel. Not sticky, but soo much apricot jam that it covers everything else, turning out one dimensional.

This "fruit beer," which it is not truely at all, is rather lousy. In most pubs this beer is sold as a lager or a brown ale. From the moment it touches one’s tongue, an immediate spalsh of perfume is noted. The uninformed novice may understand that scent/taste to be "fruitiness." I fouthrightly disagree. The odors and flavors are much more flowery than fruity. I would imagine a better flavor could be attained from drinking old rose water from a vase. This beer leaves a soapy coating on the roof of the taster’s mouth as well. Overall, considering the pricetag on a pint of this in Philadelphia is over five dollars, this is a beer to avoid.

Weak willed (like most of MH’s beers) with a pleasant apricotty aroma. Delicate fruity flavor same as aroma. This is a watered down refreshment beer that is best consumed in place of perrier.

Obviously I did not like this beer. The aroma was reminiscent of lemongrass. A hazy gold color, a decent head, but I did not like the flavor which reminded me of green tea. As far as I was concerned, its strongest point was the palate. If had good mouth feel dispite its flavor. All in all I’d drink a lite american lager before I’d drink this again.

dmradus (227) - Ithaca, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2006
Pours a golden-orange with a significant off-white head. I pick up a bit of sweet malt in the nose, as well as a significant smattering of - what else - apricots. This falls apart for me in tasting: I really can’t enjoy this brew. It is watered-down and seems to straddle the line between a full-blown fruit and a poorly conceived pale, rendering the flavors muddled and indistinct. Overly sweet apricot tones, sweet malt, and not enough hop bitterness to offset it all.

On tap. Hazy, orange/auburn color, decent head. Hops in front like a pale ale, then comes the apricot, then....well, I’m not sure what that is at the finish. Nice beer.
