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.

This is a very nice and unique beer. Very refreshing in my opinion, and a great summer beer. Okay, hereís the weird thing....drink it with dry Cheerios (not combined). Iím not one for pairing beer with food, and this is off-the-charts odd, but they really work well together. If you donít like it, donít sue me, lol.

Bottle in VA: Really sweet, fruity aroma. Not finding many hoppy smells at all. Transparent gold color, fairly strongly carbonated. Tastes very much like dried apricots. Actually not much maltiness or hoppiness in the taste, but for some reason that seems to make this one better. Overall, its good stuff.

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

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.

Amber orange color. Very crisp and refreshing. A summer beer only in my very humble opinion. This one is just weird for the sake of being weird, like a French Art Movie.

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