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.

A very pleasant fruity beer. No more no less. Hops present. Would drink again

joesf35 (77) - Margate, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Clean appearance, orange color, poor head retention. Aromas of malt, yeasty esters and slightly floral. Tastes sighty malty, vanilla, biscuit, spicy, fruity. Body is watery with a decent level of carbonation, spiciness lingers and finishes dry.

Chronoflash (76) - New York, USA - SEP 13, 2010
A clear orange-gold body and a dense white head with very low persistence. The aroma is heavily of apricot and orange peel, with a slight spiciness but no to low maltiness. A light body carries a very tart-sweet flavor, with a sharp bite on the finish. Not a terribly wonderful beer, and far too tart to be complex.

on tap at Five Guys burgers/fries @ Greektown before wings game last night. This would be a good beer to drink on a hot summer day as it’s light and crisp with fruity flavor.. I tasted a lot of peach in it, but it wasn’t like wine cooler offensive. Needs more hops though. Probably wouldn’t want more than a couple

growler (74) - West Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Pours a straw colored gold with a wispy white head. Has a fruity aroma of peaches, apricots and raspberries. Very little bite from the hops that were used. Although not my kind of beer, I was somewhat suprised. It was quite refreshing. Wouldnt mind trying it again on a hot summer day. I guess if you like the fruity tasting stuff, give it a try!

I only had one pint of this but I couldn’t get myself to try another. Maybe the sampling I had was skunky, but I found no balance in this beer at all. Too much fruit or spice. Overall disappointing.

DaveB (73) - Holyoke, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 16, 2007
On tap at an outdoor wedding reception in Masachusetts. My other choices were two Anheiser Busch products and Bass Ale. The Magjic Hat poured amber in color with a medium head. Very pleasant taste, not too fruity , nice and smooth with an easy finish. It didn’t knock me on my can like BBC Steel Rail Ale does. There must have been some other Magic Hat #9 fans there because they had to deliver a 2nd keg later in the day.

JohnCoyne (73) - Alabama, USA - AUG 13, 2008
Smells of raisin with hints of fruity apricot. Pours a clear crisp gold/copper color in the glass with a small white head. Tastes slightly bitter followed by apricot, ending clean and crisp.

A great brew that goes down easy and has an equally good after taste.

Been to a hair salon lately? I think this beer was too. The aroma reminds me of hair dye and perfume. Unfortunately, it tastes like hair dye too. Perhapo I had a bad bottle. Regardless, I’ll leave this one for the stylists to enjoy. Yuck!!
