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 thereís never been anything else quite like it. Fermented with our 150 year old strain of top-fermenting English yeast.

Strong apricot aroma, definately noticable on all levels. Great orange colour you'd expect from a nice pale ale. Good peach and apricot tones, but not enough beer tones. Some malt detected, but no hops...not a great beer.

Pleasantly light peach and apricot aroma and flavor dominate this beer... until the end when you're left with very watered down fruit juice.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2003 Pale. Decent head. I like this and I found it interesting with its strong notes of apricot. However, that's about all there is too it. Hops and malt are very mild and are overwhelmed by the fruity sweetness.

Clear light copper body with quickly vanishing white head. Aroma is earthy hoppy, somewhat sweet, some apricot fruitiness. Taste is light -- moderately sweet apricot thatís tempered by some mild earthy hoppiness. Somewhat sticky on the palate, detracting from its summer-beer feeling.

This is weird, wild stuff. Still canít figure it out. Odd color, odd balance. For some reason, I like it though.

Nice tanish brown color slim orangish foam on the top, gives off a fruitiness smell along with the hint of a hoppy greatness. The taste is fruity, I compare it to maybe one of the fruitest brew I have every had.

Never has a beerís aroma made me pour it out. I do not want to describe this catastrophe, for fear of reliving it. The flavor was sweet and pleasant.

Sweet hoppy apricot aroma. Thereís a lot going on flavor-wise, but it seems off-balance. Itís an average pale ale with a bitter apricot essence added. Too difficult to focus on the wide array of flavors that appear out of the blue. The finish is dry and musty. Seems very indecisive.
