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 verges on girl-drink (what? that's a COMPLIMENT) in terms of sweetness and refreshingness. I appreciate its secretive apricot splendor.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2003 Sweet, slightly tangy peach flavor dominates and the light-medium body is consistent with the fruit flavor. Occasionally, might enjoy one in the sun, for a change of pace. Not a beer that I like to drink in quantity.

So tasty! Pretty light compared to the other MH brews, but the apricot flavor just makes the beer so enjoyable, any time of the day.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2003
This may be the most refreshing beer that I have ever had. The color is orange/amber and the taste is very balanced between the malt and fruit flavors while finishing somewhat dry. Just an outstanding beer.

White, slightly golden, tightly packed head. The aroma is sweet. There are raspberries in there I think, almost a champagne scent. Hazy, honey-golden color, a little bit of sediment, but really a negligible amount. As the commercial description states, "dry and crisp". Very little carbonation. If you've had New Belgium's Frambozen, this is like that, but instead of a Brown Ale backbone, this has a pale ale spine. Pretty unique and interesting, overall.

xmandax (130) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 9, 2003
deep orange pour. very little head that stuck around for a while with a citrus-y aroma (orange or peach or something?) slight hop with a more discernable citrus flavor. nice finish; slightly bitter with more lingering citrus.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2003
Golden color, no head, fruity citrus peach nose. Some dryness comes about and the beer dries off the tongue.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2003
Nice apricot/fruit aroma, poured light gold, good head and lacing. Body was on the thinner side, sweet and full of soft fruits. Apricot lingers awhile at the finish, then it dries out and gains an unwelcome "off" flavor.

Dorwart (2432) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2003
Decent frothy head which lingers for a while. Slight aroma of peaches. Great color of medium orange/brown with great clarity amd carbonation. Flavor of sweet peaches and malt. Definately on the fruity side but not over-whealming. Finish is sweet and pleasant with very little aftertaste. An interesting brew and a tasty one to be experienced.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 24, 2003
Clear gold body. medium white head, peaches and apricot in the nose. Somewhat sweet, with cereal malts, fruity flavors. Perhaps some wheatiness.
