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.

I was truly disapointed in this particular beer, much like I am with many íMagic Hatí products. I experienced this at a pub the first time. It had a clear golden yellow look to it, and seemed to be much like any other pilsner. And then I tasted it. The beer went down with a subtle hoppy flavor. But the lingering aftertaste of citrus stayed in my mouth and totally overpowered anything beer like on the palate. I took another sip to see if perhaps the beer would be better. Instead the beers flavors blended together and it felt I was drinking a very poor excuse for a hard cider. I handed the glass back to the bartender and told him to pour it out. And that is the first, and only time, I have ever sent back a beer.

Tastes almost like an apricot preserve without much else going for it. Certainly nothing special.

Obviously I did not like this beer. The aroma was reminiscent of lemongrass. A hazy gold color, a decent head, but I did not like the flavor which reminded me of green tea. As far as I was concerned, its strongest point was the palate. If had good mouth feel dispite its flavor. All in all Iíd drink a lite american lager before Iíd drink this again.

Aroma--Piss Appearance--gol yellow Palate--Medium Taste-& ass malt with no hops--watery and terrible. This is just as tastey as miller lite and would be rated as lowly if it wasnít made by a microbrewery.

Wheat-y apricot, with a far too blunt of a flavor. The world did not need another wheat/apricot beer.

gav12c (119) - Wollongong, AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2012
UPDATED: APR 6, 2012 pours a clear copper/orange color with a small white head that suddenly disappears, which isnít itís only trick. itís all fruit on the nose especially apricot, different but not bad. once it hits your mouth though, it all goes wrong. it has more of the apricot, but more like a cheap apricot perfume and itís a little soapy with a hint of honey. it leaves a funny aftertaste like the smell of a teenage girls room.

Golden orange in color with extremely, almost nonexistent head. It tastes better than it smells. The aroma is a bit sour and reminds me a little of a cider. The malt body is what makes this beer palatable. Has lager like qualties in my opinion. Overall, not a fan.

Flaske fra Kihoskh: aroma av aprikosmarmelade. Gylden. Kort skum. Aprikosbrus med pilssmak eller pils med aprikossmak? Like ille begge deler.
