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 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.

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

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.

An inoffensive beer that would be a great choice for a Bud fan. The beer is difficult to describe. Not a pale, and with a slight fruit tartness. The flavor is lacking any distinguishing characteristics and I’d likely only buy this again if it was the only craft beer available.

Unexpected taste for an "almost@" pale ale. Super fruity, in a startling at first but pleasant way after the surprise wears off. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at The Pub in Whitewater WI. Couldn’t get over the mild, but unmistakable apricot taste. Think I liked it, but for not sure more than one a session.

Nice fruity aroma. Pretty good flavor. Good for a session beer, but I am a big Magic Hat fan.

A good sturdy fruity beer that has a good amber color and a nice fruit aftertaste.

12 oz bottle: Pours a golden yellow with a very slight white head. Some lacing. A very nice aroma with strong notes of apricot and maybe a little wheat/yeast or citrus. Tastes of wheat, apricot, another fruit I can’t put my finger on (pear), and hints of honey. I’m somewhat surprised by the level of carbonation and fruitiness here, but overall an alright beer.
