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 have to disagree with a lot of reviewers on this one. Love this beer. Great aroma with the citrus. Not an overpowering flavor but a great blend for an apricot pale (or should i say not quite) pale ale.

Almost no aroma, at least sppecial ones. Nice appearance, but lacks head retention. Yes is mysterious.

A nice ale. It is very malty with sweetness and some mild fruity notes in the finish, in my opinion needs more hops for a pale ale

Not too wild about this one. Tastes too watered down. Aroma is decent. Tastes like a wanna be red Revere Stryker dog!

Tasty fruit beer. Easy to drink and overall enjoyable. Nothing that really stands out but would drink again if on the menu.

Pleasant light amber in appearance. White head diminishes fairly quickly. A light, thin body, but flavorful. There is a hint of fruit. Overall I find this to be a very refreshing beer.

Very good beer. Some fruit smell, fresh bread. Pours golden and cloudy. Easy to drink, yet with a dryness balanced by complex hops. This beer is complex, well rounded, and a good selection any time of the year on any occasion; the go to and steady beer if you do not know drinking prefrences.

On Tap at Wild Wings. Poured a dark orange with an average size head. The smell was very fruity and so was the taste. There was a good amount of sweet citrus as well as a little bit of spice.

I enjoy this because it’s not like anything else I drink. A "gateway beer", perhaps, but gateway to a lot of things - the mix of fruit and hops is uncommon (except in my own homebrew, near as I can tell) and I enjoy standing with a foot in each world.

Little to no head, pours a shade darker than your crap domestics. Nothing great to look at, but has that apricot aroma that is inviting. This is a pretty light beer overall, with lively carbonation. The apricot flavor is just enough to add a great flair, and the finish is pretty quick and dry, with the perfect amount of hop bitter to keep it from being watery, but without leaving hop bitter as the only thing you can taste all night. A great tasting all around beer that I will definitely enjoy again.
