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.

fiulijn (15750) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2009 2008-09-06, Draught at R.F.D., Washington DC, as Not Quite Pale Ale, 4-3-4-2-7=20
Deep blond color. A poor Ale, with soft corners and some baking yeast character, maybe a light fruit touch too.

2006-09-06, bottle, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Amber color; big head. Some malt flavor with a gentle fruitness; the aroma as well shows some redberry touch. Quite bitter at the end. Drinkable.

yngwie (14672) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle. It’s a clear, golden beer with a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is bery berryish and sugary fruity, with some candy. The flavor is pretty much the same, with a pleasant bitterness and lemon notes. Medium body, quite dry. Fruity and berryish finish with a nice bitterness and some lemon peel. It’s a decent beer ondeed, but also rather boring. 121110

Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich peach, apricot, malt and hops. Nice and refreshing.

TBone (13359) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2006

Leighton (13019) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2009
UPDATED: APR 13, 2010 The Magic Hat flagship brew, as far as I’m concerned. A pseudo-complex taste that truly escapes description. Dry, sweet apricot comes close. You could savor this beer or session it. I recommend the latter. Buy a case and get after it. Cheers.
