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.

Does not smell very good. Has a light color like apple juice, little bit fizzy. Almost no head on pour. Very strange flavor can’t really taste much. There’s a little bit of a fruit flavor on the back end. Overall not very impressed probably wouldn’t drink again.

Tasted in bottle. Definitely a fruity, slightly artificial taste. Leaves your mouth dry.

kerenmk (2424) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at work. Clear golden, white head. Apricot icicle. Apricot, a little sour in the mouth. Soft fizz, light body, long apricot aftertaste. Rather disappointing.

Taste its overly herbal. No citrus or piney hop character. Malt character is more sugary than mouthful. Better on tap.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2005
Draft. Golden/amber color, thin white head. Fair fruity aroma, peach and apricot, mild malt. Flavor starts out as fruity and fades into a nasty stale cracker, grainy and dirty. Light to medium bodied. F’in Magic Hat.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2005
Clear copper with a small off-white head. Very faint aroma of light fruit. Flavor has notes of raspberries, strawberries and some caramel. Ends watery with no aftertaste. Moderately sweet, no bitterness detected. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. No lacing or head retention. Drinkable but extremely boring.

On tap. Fruity nose(cherry?) light amber, tiny cream head. Mild malt taste, wonder where the fruit went? Light bodied, So, so.

I used to think that I really liked this beer. Every once in a while, I’ll try it and not mind it so much. For the most part, I’m not a fan. Very weak bodied and flavored. I feel that the apricot flavor mixed with something else in the beer comes off tasting like mild barf. Yes, that’s really what I taste. It’s not strong but very present.

Bottle/Draft. Amber with alittle yellowish color. Not much of a head, and tastes way too sweet for me. Apricots and peaches are very evident, and I don’t like this combination at all.
