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.

If you know someone who doesn’t like experimenting with beers, this is a good one to start off with. Light and fruity, this is a funky brew that can make any chick feel like trendy starlette.

A good fruity pale ale. Nice hint of fruit (peach/apricot) without being syrupy sweet. Nicely balances the bitterness.

When i visited Magic Hats brewery, i passed on this taste sample. There was so many to choose from. But now that i have tried it in a bottle - i wish i had it on tap. I have to admit Magic Hat’s brewery in Vermont is definatly worth stopping into, and one of the most unique.

Like fruity beers? This is about as fruity as they come! A smooth mild pale ale with very light hop aroma. I don’t particularly like fruit in my beers especially apricots,... especially when you taste that above all else. The taste tired my toungue.

#9 is a fruity, clean ale with a loevly head and apperance, perfect for when you want more than 5 on a hot day!

It’s a fruity pale ale. The taste is well balanced and good.
