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.

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.

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. It appears a macro like golden body with literally no head. Smells like candy, very artificial smell. The taste wasn't great, kinda bland. The palate is a bit thin. Nothing thrilling. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Copper color with not much head. Aroma of fruit and earth tones. Taste of apricot, hops, vegetables. Don’t like the aftertaste, and i am not a fan of apricot. Resisting the urge not to pour down the drain.

King of country and western troubadours baby. Tastes good and goes down smoother than a lesbian’s chin.

12oz bottle poured in pint glass. I like this beer because it’s very casual, it goes down smooth and is much better then drinking a Bud Light on a hot day.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2003 Sweet, slightly tangy peach flavor dominates and the light-medium body is consistent with the fruit flavor. Occasionally, might enjoy one in the sun, for a change of pace. Not a beer that I like to drink in quantity.

Something of a guilty pleasure. Predominantly fruity with some hops near the end. I kinda like it. Generally a good beer to get people to try to steer them away from Blue Moon and the like. Respectable.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2012 Light fruity aroma. Golden brown color, pours with minimal head. Has a fruity taste. Light on the palate. I love this beer! One of my favorites.

Bright unfiltered fruity flavor. Tastes like blueberry and apricot to me. A good summer brew, something different in the seasonal "Night of the Living Dead" green skeleton pack. For people who want to have fun and mess with something weird. Tastes like something good for chicks at UT in downtown Austin

Haven’t had this in years, until now. Definitely impressed me less this time than in the past. Pours a straw color, minimal head. Aroma of light bready malt and peach. Taste is that of a plain light ale and peach ring gummy candy, minimal hoppyness. Meh.
