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.

gilvanblight (819) - Windsor, Ontario, - NOV 17, 2012
Clear copper pour with a very bubbly head that left lacing on the side of the glass before I’ve even had a sip. Strong hoppy nose that’s a touch grainy and grassy. Dry. Easy to drink. Refreshing. No strong pale ale bite. Rather nice. I’m not a fan of pale ales but I have to say I’m a fan of a not quite pale ale. I could see buying a case of these for the weekend. Very nice. Yeasty flowery aftertaste that is pretty pleasant.

Pours gold, moderately fizzy as opposed to a lasting head. Aroma is apricot, spice and somewhat musty. Taste has a lot of apricot, but nothing in either the aroma or flavor has anything resembling the piney hoppiness of an IPA. This just isn’t very good.

Franckg (530) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2015
Arômes de limonade, ananas et lichi. Légèrement sucré. Vraiment original. Doux et sucré. En bouche, limonade, un peu de citron, jus d’ananas. Un côté sucré qui fait penser à du blé malté. (Gout de banane). Amertume douce, courte et maltée. Texture légère, corps moyen. Saveurs originales. Pas une bombe mais à essayer.

Very average. Flavour is forgettable, but not unpleasant. Slightly fizzy, not much head.

lobosaintori (28) - - JUL 24, 2015
Clear light yellow in appearance, mild in flavor, sweet fruity peach and berries. . Palate is medium bodied with lively carbonation--a little too much initially but mellows as it sits in the glass. Quick finish. Overall, a nice highly drinkable beer with good flavor profile. Not complex but good either on its own or paired with food

SG111 (612) - New York, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Tap at Double Tree hotel bar, Monroeville, Pa. Pale golden yellow, white head and lacing. Aroma is lemon peel, blueberry, light pilsner malt. Flavor is blueberry, berry sweetness , lemon, malt. Not too bad but definitely not good.

Hideous. Might make good weed killer. I joined this site only to criticize this disgusting liquid. It’s so bad it makes me want to take legal action. It is to beer (or anything one might ingest) what "My Sharona" is to music. I’d rather drink bleach.

This is gross. Sorry if this is your beer, but it’s weird. Gross cardboard syrupy aroma followed by a weird adjuncty taste. Not really sure what to classify this as and from the bottle either does the brewery. "not quite pale ale" is for sure it’s not quite good. I honestly do not like this much at all.

Not horrible but not memorable either. Will not buy a six pack of them. Decent change of pace. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a bottle. Appearance is orange and hazy. Aroma is berries and sweet. Taste is fruity and malty. Palate is thin. Overall decent but not amazing.
