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 thereís never been anything else quite like it. Fermented with our 150 year old strain of top-fermenting English yeast.

I still think this is a great beer. Sure, itís a little bland, and fruity, but itís 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.

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 canít place, its a characteristic of this beer, Iím 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...

"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.

Very light beer with taste of pear, apricot, and faint hops. Nicely carbonated. Definitely a unique brew and totally drinkable, just nothing special in my mind.

Color is a ver nice shade of gold. The smell is fruitty, apricot and perhaps some lemon. The taste likewise leans the way of fruit "apricot". Light body, very easy drinking. Very little hop presence. This is a very easy drinking beer that I intend to enjoy more of this summer as I relax on my deck.
