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.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2012 I found this one a bit stale and uninteresting, a touch fruity for me and lacking of any focus. UPDATE almost 2 years later, still feel the same.

Davros (1991) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2012
Pours dark amber with a small head. Nose shows apricot and floral notes, with bland malt underneath. Pretty faint. Some apricot is present as a flavour too, but mainly it’s just cardboard and slightly grainy malt which spoils it. Body seems watery.

Tastes smoky and nutty to me. Unique. Tastes like it smells. I have drank several times from both bottle and mason jar.Maybe a little over rated by people that have referred me to this beer.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2012 Thanks to Holy for the bottle. Looks nice, but I think they just waved the fruit over the top of the beer. It doesn’t taste bad. It doesn’t taste much of anything at all.

An inoffensive beer that would be a great choice for a Bud fan. The beer is difficult to describe. Not a pale, and with a slight fruit tartness. The flavor is lacking any distinguishing characteristics and I’d likely only buy this again if it was the only craft beer available.

shorlin (659) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 19, 2012
Pours a bubbly but very clear light amber, with minimal head. Not the best looking beer ever. Very fruity aroma with some astringency. Also, some yeasty aroma in there, maybe a bit earthy? Yes, it tastes like dried apricots. Palate is really just OK. Not great mouthfeel, bit of an astringent aftertaste. Overall, thanks to Adam for donating this beer. Good to try once.

bumbax (4) - san sebastian, PUERTO RICO - DEC 10, 2012 does not count
Bottle. Hoppy-ish taste with a nice apricot aftertaste. Good for a fruity beer. Good beer to have a six pack session with.

trapped (824) - New York City, TURKEY - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle. Deep yellow color, whitish foamy small head, doughy aroma, slightly sweet taste with hint of orange, average carbonation, abrupt finish. Nothing too special about it, but still fine to drink.

Grzesiek79 (3257) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 2, 2013
Przeciętne, a spodziewałem się czegoś lepszego. Mało słodkie jak na piwo owocowe. Wyczuwam gorycz z grejfruta. Ogólnie cytrusowy aromat. Finisz gożko-lekko słodki. Piana średna ale znika z oczu jak zatopiony Titanic.
