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.

Pipper (325) - Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Poured into pint from bottle at The Winking Lizard. Lady brought me this beer instead of what I asked for so it was free, which is the only way I would ever drink this shit. Fruity apricot bandaid aroma, taste is about the same. Pale MGD pour with some lace and no head. No carbonation. Yuck but free.

JCastner (112) - New York, USA - DEC 12, 2009
One of the worst samples Iíve tried this year. Pours a brilliant copper with a nice white head. Aroma is of bread and some light dried fruit. Taste is... well, how do I put this, imagine unsweetened fruit seltzer water. No body, no sweetness, no bitterness, just very, very dry.

Eye catching bottle. Lack of info is either marketing fail or intriguing mystery. I thought the latter. but discovered a limp ambiguous brew that failed to tick any boxes. Perhaps closest to a pale ale but an absence of a defining flavour or aroma dissapointed.

KeefOz (1495) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2012
Poured a clear amber colour with a two-finger white foamy head that didnít lace well. Moderate to high carbonation - lots of bubble trails. Aroma faintly of apricot. Tasted bland, at best with a slight fruit sweetness. Light body. Had a long slightly bitter aftertaste as well as a slight metallic finish. Really a nothing beer.

kathouse (1567) - Nevada, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Pours a clear golden with a thin white foam. Sour fruit like apples and apricot in the aroma. Light body with mild carbonation. Bitter and fruity, this beer is not refreshing and the sour flavor spoils the finish.

fonefan (43245) - VestJylland, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2012

Bottle 355ml.

Clear medium orange yellow colour with a small to average, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is light moderate malty, fruity, perfume, artificial. Flavour is moderate sweet with a average duration, fruity, artificial. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. [20121110]

Hopswagger (199) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 6, 2013
P: Clear slightly foggy golden apricot body with a 1/2 finger of thin white bubbly head. Leaving behind a white halo. S: Ginger, artificial apricots, and buttery grains. Very odd aroma that I just canít pin down but itís not good. T/M: The odd aroma follows into the taste and has a unpleasant profile. The taste is like old snow cone apricot syrup. Light-medium zesty body. Finishes wet with the linger of the odd apricot taste. O: Not a fan of this at all. Itís just odd and displeasing. I get the apricot presence but its just not a good apricot. This would be much improved if the apricot taste was real and not a syrupy fake. Glad this is my last one.

Bottle. I have to give Magic Hat credit for being a solid gateway beer to the world of craft, but trying this after tasting over 300 craft brews in the past year, it is pretty undrinkable. This was so bad that I'm curious if it was a bad bottle.

ImperialPints (5) - - FEB 18, 2014 does not count
Pale clear amber colour. Bubbly white head. Yeast comes through the most strongly on the aroma. Light body, fizzy, leaves the mouth feeling dry. Strong sour, medicinal bitter (not hops bitter) finish. Not impressed. I definitely wonít be buying again. Didnít live up to its description.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 21, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2003 # Yuck! I feel a real fruit beer should contain real fruit, not the flavoring. This beer taste like a light hop free ale with a Jolly Rancher thrown in the fermenter.
