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.

mcberko (12863) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 4, 2014
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a clear copper with a small beige head. Aroma is rather subtle, with English yeast, light fruitiness, and some bready malt. Flavour is very fruity, with notes of apple and pear upfront, followed by yeast and some dry but sweet finishing notes. Very low complexity. Not very interesting stuff.

Drake (11500) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Bottle. Pours light amber with a thin fizzy head that disappears quickly. Aroma is malt and overwhelming apricot. Bitter malty taste with that apricot coming through even more strongly. Refreshing and a sentimental favorite.

DSG (11246) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Ariel. Clear deep golden. Aroma is a bit anemic, with apricot, notes of other fruits and a bit of grainy hints. Slightly sweetish flavor with light graininess, a malty hint, some fruitiness and a finish with a hint of bitterness. Light to medium-bodied. Drinkable but pretty weak.
