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.

Marigold orange clear body with medium offwhite head that laces and sticks to the glass. Instant aroma of apricots and a hint of caramel. Light flavor of apricot and hop. Kind of weak compared to the aroma. Thin palate with a refreshing, lingering apricot finish. The Dogfhish Head Aprihop is a better choice.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2005
Hazy golden ale with a thick white head. Sourish apricot and lemon with wheat in aroma. Good malty base with some apricot and a good dose of sharp hops, crisp in mouth, a bit mineral. Medium bodied.

Drank it about a million times, and now am finally rating it. Pours out a straw color with a fruity aroma. The taste isn’t overlly complex, just notes of apricot and sweet malt, agree with previous raters that it needs a kick on the hop end of things, Dogfish’s aprihop is a much better choice

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2005 the standard beer for magic hat. has a little citrus flavor to it but it could use some more hops. good beer that is always avilable.

Candy apricot, a little lemon, toasted malt in the nose. Flavor is watered down apricot candy. A bit of straw-like malt.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2005
Clear copper with a small off-white head. Very faint aroma of light fruit. Flavor has notes of raspberries, strawberries and some caramel. Ends watery with no aftertaste. Moderately sweet, no bitterness detected. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. No lacing or head retention. Drinkable but extremely boring.

punkeedo (498) - Covington, Louisiana, USA - SEP 16, 2005
This brew is a valiant attempt at originality and quality. While it does not live up to the complexity of many Belgian and German brews, this American beer is quite nice. It is pretty complex, with hints of apricot, wheat, and hops. You can taste the "swirl" that the bottle touts in the cloudiness of the brew. You will like this if you are a fan of unique brews, particularly fruit brews or even some Belgian ales.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Pours dark gold with a small head that goes away quickly. Musty and fruity aroma, like an attic full of apricots. Flavor of apricots, biscuity malts, and caramel. If you like apricots, go for it. If you like beer, go for something else.
