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.

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.

Nice apricot beer! Very light and refreshing! Pours clear and golden. Perfect for a summer day!

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.

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.

First tasted at Woody’s woodfired pizza in Boston in 1999 the magic of this beer has captivated me ever since. The apricot flavor is just the right amount to be enjoyable and not overpowering. A good beer for a summer day with burgers or pizza. Available in bottles and cans but inside the bottlecaps you get to read funny bits of wisdom with each beer. My favorites: Dogs are King of Everything. Does killing time damage eternity?

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

Amber colored sewer water. It looks look beer but it is not. ..

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