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.

9 has a unique falvor to that no other beer has. 9 is a beer that I would drink any time. Not because I’m a good custormer of Magic Hat but because I really enjoy this beer. Cheers have a 9...Enjoy!

I enjoy this beer cause it has a smooth, fruity taste, not overwhelming. Not too heavy, very good summertime beer.

This is so cool. How did they get a beer to taste like Nag Champa?

I still think this is a great beer. Sure, it’s a little bland, and fruity, but it’s a nice beer to have on hand for the girls

Smells very fruity with a hint of caramel. Pours a darker color. Tastes delicious with hints of citrus and caramel. Very smooth to the palate and overall good beer.

"Not quite pale ale" is a little coy; in fact, this is nothing like a pale ale, but is nevertheless quite a beer. An almost luminescent orange color with a mildly spicy, citrusy, almost saccharine nose, the flavor is quite unique. While it’s too sweet to become a staple, it’s certainly one of the more baffling beers (in a good way) I’ve had in quite a while.

Lots of fruits in the aroma, apricots and peaches. Needs more hops to balance out the sweetness, not crisp enough. I enjoy the fruit flavors however, and it makes this beer (while a little bland) still drinkable. Mouth feel is thin and bubbly, lots of carbination. There is an odd flavor with this beer that I can’t place, its a characteristic of this beer, I’m not sure however. Not BAD, not amazing either.

Sweet Nectar of the Gods - apricot nectar that is. Beer pours very smooth and evenly, with very little, but creamy head formation, which quickly disappears. The smooth pour belies a carbonated bite that cuts through the very present apricot aroma. Did I mention the apricots in this one? Leaves an aftertaste of hops. A nice balance to the thick apricot nectar-iness. Must go now, have to inspect remainder of 12 pack sampler...
