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.

Booooooooooooring.....good beer on draft when there is nothing better available, but not something I would seek out in the store. Smell/taste is peach/strawberry/apricot. Bland stuff.

Khaggerty118 (69) - Olney, Maryland, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Pours a very pleasant amber. Spotty head, never quite one fine layer. Smells of orange, hops and caramel. Has a wheat, malty flavor with a speck of hops. Very unique. Almost caramel. Easy to drink a number of. Wouldn’t consider it a top spot.

Pours amber with light head. Aroma is sharp when first poured but fades. Taste is fruity at the start with a bitterness at the end.

Light, just the right carbonation and great taste. The aftertaste leaves something to be desired, though.

Pours copper in colour with a moderate head. Very strange floral taste with an apricot aftertaste. I’d say its a fruit beer with IPA tones. Not a fan but it’s complex taste may well make this someone’s favourite.

openwindow (67) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 31, 2005
Very unique beer. Very stong fruity aroma (not sure I’d have pinpointed apricot if I wasn’t aware it was in there). Taste is sweet, with equal parts of fruit and hops. Aftertaste has a slight hoppy flavor, but is dominated by the fruit flavor. Not usually a fan of fruit beers but this one is unique and different. MUCH better draft than bottle.

Great infusion of apricot; crisp, light, slight tartness balanced by flavorful taste of grains.

TommyTilt (67) - Maryland, USA - JUN 18, 2011
12oz bottle out of a variety case. Poured a golden yellow with an off white fizzy head. Aroma was fruity, like a mixed bag of grandpas dried fruit. Tasted sweet/sour with apricot notes. Thought it would have been light bodied but its heavier. Pretty nice beer, have had it plenty of times.

I enjoyed this beer, a good beer to drink after trying to pound a pick axe through N Carolina clay in order to get some grass to grow
