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.

Yuck, I would prefer a commercial lager over this. Notes of peach that turns to a taste of skim milk. Not worth your time.

Taste is subjective, of course. Well this is not my favorite. Aroma is pleasant. Cloves? Light citrus. Appearance is nice. Cloudy ale, orange tint. But back to the taste...it's, sour I think. Hoppy, but not in a good way. I enjoy Magic Hat, but not #9. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2007 I was first a little confused about this one. It has a strange aroma and flavor. I wasnít sure if I liked it or not. Then I had a second and I am not very fond of it. As you can see by the other posts, you either like it or not. The aroma is more flowery than fruity. It just isnít my type.

a beer that seems to be unsure what itís trying to be. too much fruit to be considered a hint, not enough to be a true fruit beer. apparent use of fruit syrup leads to a sweet, cloying beer that just doesnít deliver

The best thing about this brew is it’s color. Pretty hard pour into a tulip glass and not much of a head and what was there didn’t last. Thin mouthfeel, flavor and aroma of apricots, which i didn’t particularly like. Not enough hops for my taste

Smells like fermented apple juice and dirty socks. Golden color w/ a light, white head. Tastes like seltzer water w/ a slight apple flavor. Very bland. Awful. I wouldnít recommend this to my worst enemy (hmmm...or maybe I would).

Odyn (266) - New York, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Fruity and floral notes on the nose. Dark gold in color with a thin head.Initially tastes of apples, but quickly changes into something more sour and alcohol like. Leaving a bitter taste on the palate. Not impressed.

Nice white head, thin lacing, nice amber color. Smells like pumpkin or some other kind of squash (zucchini?). Tastes and feels like an ESB made with tomato juice and zucchini skin, that somebody filtered through a cardboard box of Wheaties. Instantly disappearing hopping. Thin carbonation. Itís weird but not awful.

Very floral aroma. Roses roses roses. Overly sweet flavor that tastes like roses.
