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.

This IS a fun beer to drink. The fruity apricots blend well with the full ale body. Enjoyable, different and accessible.

"It’s fun to drink" - pivo. Sweet peaches, apricots and also lemons aroma. Golden body, no head. Intense apricot flavor. Nice, but too thin.

freekyp (1462) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - NOV 29, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2004 Good thirst quencher. Slightly thin body. Overly strong apricot nose and flavor. Best in HOT weather with BBQ Chicken.

Green apricots in the nose, bit of wheaty sourness...body moderately sweet, fairly dry and somewhat salty/metallic towards the end, fruit subdued, sourdough-wheatiness fairly strong, light body, fairly refreshing and drinkable but quite forgettable.

Definitly a fruit beer. Good one for actual thirsty people, but not something I would drink all the time.

This is a girl beer, but a pretty good girl beer. A nice, light, bbq or party kind of beer.

I actually really like this stuff. It’s pretty good for summer, and is a good "starter beer", for people just getting into beer drinking. My girlfriend really likes it. There’s a light hint of some kind of citrus fruit i can’t place right now. (scroll down) Ah yes, apricot. Light, tasty, great for cookouts.

Pale gold to amber body with a large growth of bubbles sticking to the side of the glass. White ring around the glass trying to pass itself off as a head. Very pungent nose with an aroma of a cheap chardonnay. This beer does have a smooth texture that slides down the throat. Flavor of apricot with a lasting bitterness on the palate. Trying too hard to differentiate itself from others.
