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.

Pour from bottle. You can taste it in the smell,,, fruity doowop. Sweet and benine, but at the same time pretty damn good for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at jfk, new york. Clear deep golden color, small white head. Malty aroma with fruits, some berries. Malty body with hint of fruits and berries.

Pours an orangish amber with white frothy head. Distinct apricot and malt on the nose with a bit of hop. The flavor is light sweet with a slightly crisp peach finish. A very drinkable and enjoyable beer

I didn’t get a whole lot of taste out of this one. Just mildly fruity. It was pleasant, but not complex, nor did it contain any depth to it. I would drink it again, but probably not go out of my way to buy it again.

Great beer. Quality has declined since magic hat was purchased. I wish the batches were a bit more consistent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

firemarshal (144) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle into flute. Wrong glass choice. Shaker would have been better. Medium cloudy, golden color with small dense lasting head and plenty of carbonation. Nose of raisin, cheese, dough. Taste is light apricot, nectar finish. Fizzy, salty, then sweet finish. As advertised. My first fruit beer so I hesitate to rate too high or low.

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 30, 2013
from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - hazy blond-orange beer with a modest foam left; charming and pretty subtle aroma of apricots and tangerines; medium-bodied and fizzy; moderate sweetness and decently dry, some acidity brings a good balance; short and subtle aftertaste of apricots

Bärnstensfärgad med litet ljust skum! Humle och en den malt i doft och smak! Ok öl dracks i New York!

Usually I like the aroma more than the taste on these beers, but this time the flavor was quite pleasant, not bitter in the least. Not much head, nice apricot smell, smooth going down.

Bottle to glass at room temp. Overly carbonated which spoilt any flavour! You can taste the apricot which was kinda nice. Bit of a metallic finish.
