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.

Ungstrup (29477) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2003
The aroma is fresh, malty and hoppy - a little artificial. It is amber and has a fine head. The flavor is like the aroma combined with a strong note of peach.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Unusual brew using English top-fermenting yeast and also wheat. And then it’s a fruit beer - I would’ve guessed raspberries, but it turns out to be....apricot!!! Fully golden, unfiltered with a pretty decent head. Pronounced, dry fruit flavours and almost no sweetness. Well, not a complete pleasure.

oh6gdx (20618) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2006
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, small white head. Aroma of caramel, malts, fruity hops and some slight hayish notes. Flavour is lots of apricot, hops, malts, grass and caramel. Smooth and refreshing, but not necessarily a superb flavour experience.

omhper (19659) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2006
[Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival] Hazy golden. Rich apricot jam aroma. Sweet with rounded mouthfeel. Not sticky, but soo much apricot jam that it covers everything else, turning out one dimensional.

Bright clear amber beer, little white head. Palate is light, crisp and dry. Lagerish dry malt. Nice fruits - tinned peach and apricot. Trace of strawberry. Minerally dry finish with some hop bitterness. Interesting beer but too dry.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2009 2008-09-06, Draught at R.F.D., Washington DC, as Not Quite Pale Ale, 4-3-4-2-7=20
Deep blond color. A poor Ale, with soft corners and some baking yeast character, maybe a light fruit touch too.

2006-09-06, bottle, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Amber color; big head. Some malt flavor with a gentle fruitness; the aroma as well shows some redberry touch. Quite bitter at the end. Drinkable.
