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.

Fruity but crafty. Smooth. Refreshing peach pipe tobacco aroma. great color, looks like the color of a quality lager. fruity palate. It’s a magic hat of a beer! Cheers!

No aroma at all with average appearance on draft. Taste is clean with nutty flavors. Relatively neutral aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a golden color with white head. Some citrus and pine on the nose, but very faint; follows onto the palate. The taste really picks up some light fruit on the palate. Finishes with a hay like note.

On tap. Had this at a crappy, busy bar in New York, while standing up. Didn’t pay too much attention to it, but it was easy drinking, with hints of apricot and peach, maybe. Quite a watery mouth feel to it as well. It wasn’t bad or anything, just didn’t grab my attention.

This "ok" in a bottle. The first time I had it was on tap, and I liked it better. Not bad, not great.

Had no idea it was fruit until I looked up rating. Then it did give the apricot background after another taste. Good hot day beer,but not...NOT a fruit beer.

Bottle. This is a bland beer. Pours gold with a white head. Nose is hay and caramel. Taste is same with some bitterness.

Poured from a 3/4 pint bottle into an english pint glass. Right off the bat, the color is a thin honey hue. Not real sweet, neither. If this is a fruit beer, i can hardly detect apricot in the mix. nevertheless, it’s a tasty one. Or should one say, over and over "#9...#9...#9..."

Not great for me. I tend to like fruit beers and I honestly wouldn’t have known this qualified as one if not for reading it. I could not taste nor really smell the apricot aromas that this beer is supposed to hold. That being said, it has an okay aroma and taste, nothing that really stands out.
