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.

For some reason this beer reminded me of a light flavored Scotish ale, Mc Ewans IPA or Saranac single malt. It's a fair brew but the overwhelming or most dominante taste seems to be a yeasty flavor.

Pretty decent. Hazy, medium colored. Fruity, floral aroma. Fairly nice actually. Fruity taste. I noticed the apricot. Overall not bad, but fruit beers aren't generally my thing.

hazy medium golden, nice white head. very fruity and very floral aroma. flavor is exactly the same...some grapefruit, some mango and unripe peach and pear. WAIT!!!! i just read austinpowers rating and realized mango wasnt the flavor...it is the apricot..just had to point that out

Copper coloured. This has a toast and butter with toffee aroma. Flavours are smooth, if flat. A mellow IPA, even? Has a sour fruit finish. A weird beer.

This ale woke me up like no ipa ever has. Its taste is so unique and pleasant that I will add it to my "must have" list.

Dark gold with a creamy white head. Smell and taste of sweet apricots. Minimal malt in the flavor but no hops to speak of. Smooth finish

A lot of hippies like this shit, but it's alright if you buy it too. It's a good beer just to sit and chill with, believe me, I ain't no pot smokin' hippie. Pick yourself up a sixer and drink. Peace

Aside from a slight fruit flavor, it tasted like a plain old ale. Smooth and easy drinking.

12 oz. brown long-necked bottle. Best by end of July, but no year noticed. Clearly, this beer is old, and I mean really old. Poured out a light amber color, with no head, and very little carbonation. Nothing in the way of aromas stood out to me, except that damned Ringwood yeast. This may have been a decent beer if they'd change to an American ale yeast, but as it is, it's just plain nasty. Tasted stale, no fruitiness, no hops, no nothing. Stale is the word. A certified drain pour if ever there was one. Good thing I only bought one to try it out, because I'd be mad as hell if I had a six pack of this pig swill to get rid of.
