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.

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is old, fruit punch syrup, raspberry, malt, not good. Appearance is light golden with a touch of red, off white head, clear. Taste is...wheat. Medicinal raspberry, metallic, not much else. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, almost no carbonation, metallic aftertaste. Overall, damn 1001 Beers list. This one sucks.

Canned. Kind of blah. Flat and uninteresting mouthful. A bit wheaty taste at the end. Eh it's okay.

mbgrayson (726) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - MAR 8, 2016
Pours a golden color, with white head. Aroma of grapefruit and malts. Very nice and unique taste, notes of fruit, almost like juicy fruit. Smooth and drinkable. Thumbs up!

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2016 Yes, it is not "not quite pale" but still drinkable. Roasty malts, holiday baking dough, pineapple, and ends with a nice floral tone. Overall good, but too ’dark’.

Boy I haven’t had this in years. Just going by taste drinking from the bottle. I’m not really getting to much flavor. I feel like this used to be really good.

jsporrer (740) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle @ Bone Fish Grill. Pours a caramel orange with a thin white ring. Aroma of sweet fruit. Crisp and refreshing similar to a Pilsner but with a sweet fruity flavor. They say apricot but it seems more like berries. Medium carbonation. Very enjoyable. No harshness or bitterness. Nice clean taste.

terefere (375) - Durham, USA - JAN 8, 2016
Bottle. Pours golden, clear, frothy head. Aroma of berries, flowers, some pineapple, malts. Taste of berries, honey, bread, some yeast.

jukkar (120) - FINLAND - JAN 7, 2016
Aroma has some barnyard, basement aromas and earth in it. Taste has some weird aroma that I cannot identify. Thin feel, average carbonation. Drinkable but not my favorite.

12 oz bottle from notes. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have grainy malts, some apricot and peach character, pale malts, mild bitterness, not too much going on here, meh.
