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.

KeefOz (1464) - 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 (1525) - 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 (43166) - 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.

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.

ClarkVV (5369) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 12, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2004 Light, bubbly nose with no hint of. . .anything until the body, which is extremely light and tasteless. I had to stretch to pretend i tasted some apricot. This could be one of the most tasteless yet inoffensive beers. Reminded me much like a cool tasty glass of spring water.

thin head over a light amber coloring. smells like a garbage container and it tastes like a licking a dirty ashtray filled with water.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2003
Strong apricot aroma and flavour. Thin white fully diminishing head on hazy straw body. Medium body. I find the fruit flavour to be artificial and cloyingly sweet. Although I do generally like the output of this brewery, I'm not a big fan of this offering. On tap at the brewey and bottled.

Bottle: Impossible to describe!? There are at least 477 ratings that say otherwise. Overall: plain, simple, some fruity taste. Thatīs it.
