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.

Nice ale with a hint of apricot. Light enough to get absolutely hammered, but strong enough that you don't want to. Excellent "anytime" beer.

Both the aroma and taste are dominated by apricot. Not much hop flavor. Light bodied. Mouth-feel similar to that of a an ESB.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2003 What on Earth is this stuff? I was at a party last year when someone handed me one. It tastes like it's 150 years old! Pure crap! Unfortunately this is the lowest rating this site will allow me.

Very fruity. Other reviewers says it's apricot, so I'll go along with that but the aroma and flavor are more of a generic fruitiness. Mouthfeel is sweet and a touch too watery. Best described as drinkable and interesting but not distinguished.

A light ale with a hint of non-synthetic apricot essence. Not overly sweet. A bit to thin and hop starved for my taste.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2004 Looks like a pale ale. Smells something like an English ale or ESB, except that there is more of a fruity aroma of apricots. Flavor is sweet and fruity. The finish is fairly dry with mild amounts of bitterness. Thanks ScottVacula!

On of the few "fruity" beers that I've ever tasted that I actually like. The apricot essence is subdued enough as not to overpower.

I wasn't to impressed here. Orangish color, fruity aroma, no head. Begins with a wierd fruityness and the rest of the flavor is just kind of watery and boring. It kind of tasted like an imcomplete pale ale. Maybe not bitter enough for me.

(Bottle) Must have got a bad bottle? Strange aroma... hops but some odd Hawaiian Punch additive. Pours copper with dissipated white head. Finishes dry. Average.
