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.

If you know someone who doesn’t like experimenting with beers, this is a good one to start off with. Light and fruity, this is a funky brew that can make any chick feel like trendy starlette.

So tasty! Pretty light compared to the other MH brews, but the apricot flavor just makes the beer so enjoyable, any time of the day.

This beer looks really good but has little aroma and the only flavor I could make out was the apricot.

This beer was an extreme let down. I had high hopes since I’ve heard great things but honestly the flavor was just lacking. the appearance is great and it is certainly appealing but the taste has that "commercial" lightness to it that I can’t stand. Also the fruitiness wasn’t balanced well at all.

Nice Apricot beer, . pours orange with white head, caramely aroma leads to orange apricot apple touches. Nice and refreshing, could drink multiple, fruity but not too too much.

This beer is great.When I took my first taste of this I thought good-nothing special.Then the fruity taste came in on the end and it became my favorite beer.

A light amber color, sourish aroma that predicts the slightly citrus, malty base that underlies a "mysterious" blend of spices. Overall nice flavor for a lowish middle abv beer.

Bottles. As others have said the apricot flavor can be rather overpowering to ones palate. A great beer for bbq’s and other summer activities as its not overwhelming in alcohol content.

Apricot was too overpowering for me here. It smelled good, but the easiest way to explain it was a strong overtone of apricot, almost started like juice, then tasted of a beer with nothing special to offer, then after i swallowed i forgot what the beer tasted like because the apricot took over once yet again.
