fairly average beer. consistent yeasty flavor with lots of fruit flavor added. remains the same flavor all the way through. a good change from bitter beers but nothing special

Bottle: Amber color with a small white head. Thin body. Some hints of apricot in the nose. Taste is actually well balanced, lots of apricot syrup, but not enough to make it unpleasant, some sweet malt, caramel, and not much else. Very drinkable.

Yellow/amber color. Aroma of peaches and apricots. Body is thin, and the peach/apricot flavor is just about all that is there. There is a little bitterness.
Not much to write home about.

Not too impressed with this beer. There really wasn’t much here. Very little aroma and flavorwise it just was not there. This might be a tad overrated here.

This beer poured a very light color like a domestic light beer. The taste was just like a commercial light beer with some fruitness added to it. I was not very impressed with this beer.

Boring and one dimensional. Tastes like a macro with some apricot flavoring added.

I had this beer on tap and I really liked it. A very nice aroma with a slight fruit taste. I thought it was peach but my drinking buddy said it was apricot. Light bodied, short, white head. It went down quick so I ordered another!

Much much better on tap. I did not like the bottle. I don’t care for fruit beers, but this was pleasant. Good color, nice head, Crisp.

A great beer brought back from Vermont for me. Nice peachy color, light, but full of flavor.

A confusing label here. "not quite pale ale" What does that mean? "natural flavor added" Which ones? If you "read" the psychedlic/op-art label, you’ll find the image of an apricot. I still don’t know why it’s called #9..
Peachy color, with a short, white head. Aroma is the very essence of apricots! I read that it’s "a pale ale with a spritz of apricot essence." Some spritz! That’s the cheif aromatic, and flavor, but, I don’t mind, I love apricots! Texture is full and welcome. Light body, good hop play on the palate, but very little bitterness. Malt is in adequate supply. A very tasty , bright, delicious ale, that I enjoyed.
