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.

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.

a sim rate: (on tap at 7B in NYC) Sweet aroma and flavour. Very citrus and fruity. Nice, drinkable and worth a try.

This is my first of beer of my next 100 beers. This pale ale was purchased at The caboose in Ashland, VA. The pale ale was thin with little body. The head was white with about one finger. The color was a straw. There was fruitiness and some sweetness. This was just a unremarkable beverage.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2014 On tap at Taphouse Grill, Norfolk VA, 4/25/06: The bartender couldn’t really tell me what style this was, but I tried it anyway. What I got was a mellow yellow-orange beer with a quickly ebbing head. It had a smooth mouthfeel. It was sweet and fruity with an almost berry or apricot essence. But it was underpinned with a light malt goodness. Good warm weather beer.

Very good beer. Its a little odd as its a fruit beer but you cant really put a finger on what fruits make up its flavor.amber, sparkling, aminimal head, medium sweetness, long finish, lively, light body

On tap. Never choose a beer with the word "mysterious" in the first sentence of its description. Disappointing.

What the hell was this? It was easy to realize it was a fruit beer, but everythign beyond that was a toss-up. The body was almost amber with a generoues and rocky head that faded quickly. There was a fruity sweet aroma that reminded me a little of cherries. Odd sweet flavour with more cherries or tart something. I think the appeal of this beer is the fact that it is wildly different, not because it is good.

My god; this was horrible. Admittedly I was too impatient and didn’t let this warm up beyond about 42 degrees, so maybe it would have been wonderful warmer, but I almost gagged when I swallowed the first mouthful. I tried one more to see if I could come up with some descriptive terms to use here, but it wasn’t worth trying any harder. Fruit? Didn’t smell or taste any. Mostly tasted like a bad American Pale Ale to me.
