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.

On-tap at the Mews Tavern. No tthe first time I have had this beer and I continue to like it. Color is pale orange/yellow and carbonation/bubbles are very inviting. Smells of fresh apricots, though not overpoering Taste is malty, fruity and sweet. Apricots are very present, but the backbone of the beer is not overmatched. Mild fruitiness and medium carbonation enables this beer to be highly sessionable.

Great beer that always seems unique; strange brew, with a mixed variety of flavors from hops to fruit that all seem to work well together. Pretty smooth with a light to medium body that goes down easy. Iíve been drinking #9 for years and always find the overall flavor different and enjoyable.

Just not my kind of thing. Definitely a very interesting, funky blend. It seems to be the beer version of Lucky Number 6 (the male fragrance). Not that it tastes similar to the smell (hehe), but that itís flavors are equally difficult to describe and equally tries to come off as being elusive/mysterious. Lots of citrus, a bit of a ginger-like bite to it, but the malt flavor isnít lost. Hard to forget. Not disgusting at all, but not something I would ever buy 6 of.

On draft at local bar. Great fruity apricot nose. Nice color and carbonation, slight hazy appearance. Beautiful head. I really love the flavor in this beer, the apricot/peach fruitiness goes really well with the grainy malt taste. Hopped just enough to let you know its there.

More IPA than fruit beer as description indicates. Heavier than most in this category but still refreshing. No as apricot full than suggests.

Great unique beer. Crisp and fresh. Hint of fruitiness but not over powering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at BJs. Not knowing it was apricots, it tasted to me like a hard candy. A harsh finish. Interesting, but I won't order a second. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
