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 thereís never been anything else quite like it. Fermented with our 150 year old strain of top-fermenting English yeast.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2007 This was by far one of the best beers Iíve had in a long time. Beautiful carmal color, with a nice taste with a small hint of some fruity flavoring.

One of my absolute favorite beers. Pours a nice dark-golden hue with average to above-average head, fruity refreshing aroma and taste. More malt less hops, perfectly crisp and balanced for me.

Delicious. One of my all time favorites. A subtle taste of sweet fruit really sets this beer off. They just started distributing this beer on the west coast, and Iím hopeful more of Magic Hatís amazing beers make it out here soon.

I love this beer. It's just light enough with just the right amount of flavor. The aroma is worth a moment's savoring. In bottles it is good, but on tap it's great and has a bit more aroma.

Had it in bottle and on tap. Always prefer it bottled. Sweet, almost smokey and full bodied. Full of fresh summer fruit flavors. More than just apricots. This is a remarkable ale.

An instant favorite. I was so confused and delighted by the apple-orange aftertaste while I was drinking it I had to keep going back for more.

A beautiful ale with hints of apricots! Best when chilled, and in a glass.

This is just a great beer. One of the flagship beers from Magic Hat, this can be drank during any season in vast quantities. Easily the best that Magic Hat makes, and the one of the best ales you will have.
