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.

Heavy sugar with light citrus on the nose. Nice golden amber color. Bread taste with slight citrus notes. Very carbonated, drinks like a soda. Over all a decent beer, nothing spectacular. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

on tap at Mellow Mushroom, Raleigh. Deep gold, intense aroma but not too strong. Nice flavor, complex, but was hard to pick out much individually.

Fruity. Eh. Ok. Nothing to make you say woooh this is good. But it was a light fruity beer. I’d have it again I played beiruit with this and was fine. The fizz on my tounge felt funny and the coloar was apricoty.

-Date Tasted : 1-12-10
-Rating : 2
-Brew Date/Batch# : N/A
-Mode : 22oz. bottle
-Source : St. Louis area grocery
-Appearance : good amber and golden
-Aroma : smell sweet and like hair cleaning supplies
-Flavor : nasty, how do they even call this “not quite pale ale”. They need to tell you that this is a fruity beer. Tastes like rotten apricots and dirty peaches.
-Overall : I couldn’t even finish this one because I hate sweet fruity beers. I wouldn’t drink this ever again. Very disappointing that this beer is coming from Magic Hat. I claim false advertisement I didn’t know I was getting a fruit beer.

Pours an orange-golden from the bottle. Sweet, fruity, berry aromas. Lightly carbonated. Fruity flavours, with apricot most pronounced - presumably from the yeast used? Light bitterness on the finish. Very quaffable for a sweeter beer.

ckau (26) - north east, Maryland, USA - AUG 25, 2008
Best choice when only faced with larger commercial fizzy brews. Limited head, good carbonation. While not too familiar with MH’s other beer, I would expect this beer would be pretty good without the apricot essence. Good maltiness underneath the fruitness

moose85uofa (26) - Alabama, USA - NOV 4, 2009
Bottled. Very sweet with a burst of peach and apricot flavoring. Light on the palate and very smooth going down. Great for the late spring and early summer.

A solid brew that can be drank when you are in the mood for something light. Solid fruit flavors. A staple for the more casual beer drinker.
