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.

SwillNoMore (105) - USA - JAN 6, 2007
Bottle, from mug. Hazy, very pale yellow body. Airy white head dissipates rather quickly; fair lacing. Aroma of...apricots, naturally. Mouthfeel is light and thin, if a tad sticky, with minimal carbonation. Flavor is sweet, sweet and more sweet. Finish is sweet again, but a lone hop manages to poke it’s head momentarily above those sticky waves, before finally going under. Not being a fan of "additive" beers, I expected to have to force this down, but it was actually pretty refreshing. That doesn’t make it beer, however. It’s a refreshing, alcoholic fruit beverage.

CelticBrew (748) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - JUN 26, 2007
Pours medium amber, aroma of malts, apricots and spices. Flavor is of a mild apricot and malty character. The flavor reminds me of a bitter, but without the carbonation and hoppy bitterness. Its an OK beer, but I wont drink it again, besides, I’m not a big fan of "fruit" beers.

Bierkrug (2109) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2011 33o ml bottle in the USA. Little head nice amber color. Apricot aroma, and taste helps hide the low quality beer. Hoppy aftertaste. Not bad for a hot summer day but falls ito the flavored beer follies.

Pours light amber with thin head. Aroma of pears, apricots, and licorice (in a chemical sort of way). Tastes like watered down bitter apple juice. Not sure what people see in this one.

williamstome (756) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 26, 2010
Appearance: Translucent gold with minimal head. Not much aroma, a bit of hops? weak apricot flavor, with a bitter finish. Not great, but not terrible.

On tap served in a pint glass. Pours an amber golden clear color. Aromas of malt. Little bitterness. Not sure why it’s an almost pale ale. Some sweet fruit tastes come through. Aftertaste is an unpleasant almost skunky quality.

Tap: Clear gold with a white head. Sweet and pleasant aromas. The flavor is cardboard and red apples followed by a thin body and aftertaste. Yuck.
