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.

Magic Hat is one of my favorite brewing companies. This is their signature beer and a good choice. A very enjoyable beer to drink.

Slight apricot flavors, medium carbonation, cloudy colouring, a bit of body and quite appropriately named. Fresh, juicy, crisp and refreshing. In its class/price range a good bargin.

Bottle...lots of apricot, mild yeastiness followed by hoppy zest. Decent length, finishing with similar fruit character in nose. Refreshing, easy drinking ale.

Drank straight from 12 oz bottle. Unique fruity aroma. Taste was apricot with subtle citrus notes in the background. Medium carbonation. The palate wasn't bad but faded pretty quickly. Pretty good unique beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

#9 is an apricot fruit ale. And a great one at that! If you have never had a fruit or vegetable flavored beer give this a go. If you like it then you try other flavors. #9 also has decent mouth feel and body and is somewhat bready or as some would say: funky.. You gotta admire Magic Hat for saying this is their flagship beer since it is a bit adventurous, but it does work rather well.

Aroma is mute of fruit and light of bread. Appearance is typical. Taste is hard to capture. Best explanation is a American Pale ale that has had its hops replaced with fruit and aromatics. The taste of pale fruit & aromatics is the theme here. This brew leaves scents of rose that lingers long on the tongue. Its an interesting experience not sure if I like it or not. Its not my favorite beer by any means but its not bad.

(bottle) Aroma almost knocked me over or gave me a headache. It tastes more like a fruit beer than a pale ale, with definite apricot-citrus overtones. Overall, a decent beer that I wouldn’t want to drink too much of.

Smell is really sweet and fruity. Pours an almost pink. No head to speak of or lacing for that matter. Tastes alot like the smell, peachy and slightly hoppy but not overwhelming on either note. Dry mouthfeel. Good beer.

I am not a fan of fruit beers, but I have always really enjoyed #9. A great session beer, available all over (at least near me). Pours a orange/brown with a moderate head that dissipates quickly. Smell of malt, and apricot extract. It is a nice balanced mixture of aromas. Taste is a solid pale ale with a hint of apricot that is well in balance. I think most fruit beer have difficulty wiht this balance, I like that #9 is a beer first, with a hint of apricot. Mouthfeel and Drinkability are solid for a session beer. I like these in the summer on the patio at the bar.
