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.

Come on, you call this beer? Magic Hat has been a continual disappointment. Very little to none on aroma and flavor. Nothing distinct at all.

Flour City Brew Fest. I was expecting alittle more from this. Sure it was and ok beer and somewhat smooth. But the build up that this was going to be some mysteriously great beer, let me down when it was ordinary.

Clear orangish with no head. Unfamiliar aroma... not a huge aroma, but itís there. Flavor is... well, kinda lacking, a bit like unsweetened koolaid, but not even that strong. Decent, and Iíll give it another shot now that Iíve read about it... but I wasnít overly impressed.

Had at the Rohrbachís summer brew fest. Berries in the nose, straw color, malt and hops in the palate and a dry finish. One of the less impressive fruit beers of the day.

Draft. Amber body with no head. Nose is sour fruit and stale hops. Light malty sweetness and corn notes. Unpleasant, really. Taste is better with ripened fruit notes, light malt sweetness, dry hops and some caramel notes. Body is light and smooth with minimal carbonation feel. Finishes with more fruity notes, caramel, sweet malts and mild hops. I wanted this to be better than it is but it didnít meet my expectations. Average beer.

Funky aroma, some ringwoody buttered caramel, some kind of vague fruitiness, peachy or persimmon. Flavor quite the same. Amber color nice, if a little cloudy. Weird but not bad.

Tap. Pours light orange amber with almost no head. Surprisingly thick mouthfeel, not too carbonated. Essentially, this beer starts out quite apple-y and apricot-y, diminishing in quality as the drinking progresses. Strong fruity aromas in the nose, if a little artificial. First sip is sweet, but not what Iíd call malty - a crisp cider attack. As the flavors travel toward the back of the tongue, the apple becomes sweeter and more cloying, with a hint of sourness, until finishing with a sort of nasty oaky taste - the core and the stem. Overall, refreshing and definitely interesting, but like most sweet beers, I got annoyed by the end. Better while cold; best suited out of cold bottles on a hot day.

The commercial description sums it up. Good, but not really able to compare it up. A little malty, a little hop, a little fruit, a little ?, and so on. Try it and see for your self.

Bright orange-amber color, with shy foamy white head, fruity, pale malt, hoppy note and peachy- apricot like aroma, spicy corianderand wheat nose, follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a fruity peachy character from the hop used, spicy, crystal malt, crisp in a soft hoppy finish.
