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

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2011 Bottle, The pour was a clear golden copper in color with a thin (1/2 finger or less) frothy white head that dissipated rapidly and had fair lacing. The aroma was of moderate grain malts, a mild floral hop and an earthy yeast with a definite hint of apricot and maybe a little honey. The taste was a little malty and had a nice fruity note in the beginning then shifted to a slightly bitter hoppy flavor at the end with just a hint of spice that left the flavor hanging around for a decent amount of time. Mouthfeel was excellent, with the body being light to medium and a the texture being creamy at first then rather dry at the end with a nice lively carbonation. Overall, the mild bitter finish and the flavors that were left to linger allowed you to enjoy the full embodiment of this brew. Nice and tasty and quite drinkable.

Hideous. Might make good weed killer. I joined this site only to criticize this disgusting liquid. It’s so bad it makes me want to take legal action. It is to beer (or anything one might ingest) what "My Sharona" is to music. I’d rather drink bleach.

This is gross. Sorry if this is your beer, but it’s weird. Gross cardboard syrupy aroma followed by a weird adjuncty taste. Not really sure what to classify this as and from the bottle either does the brewery. "not quite pale ale" is for sure it’s not quite good. I honestly do not like this much at all.

Not horrible but not memorable either. Will not buy a six pack of them. Decent change of pace. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a bottle. Appearance is orange and hazy. Aroma is berries and sweet. Taste is fruity and malty. Palate is thin. Overall decent but not amazing.

Can. A- Apricots, fruity, cleaner, wheat, pool water. A- Orange color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Wheat, apricots, fruity, slightly dry, subtle bitterness. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, fruity finish. O- Early in my craft days I’d have loved this. With a bit more of a palate now, it’s not so delish. Decent but not delish. Nice apricot in there but also some cholorine and chemical like aromas. Excepted more. Wanted more.

adasko (944) - Poznan, POLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Aromatu brak. Lekko słodowy i owocowy. Piwo klarowne, barwa złota. Kiepska piana. W smaku delikatne owoce, wysokie nasycenie. Lekka goryczka. Mix radera i PA.

Bottle in Philadelphia. Strong spicy aroma with a lingering sweetness. Apricot a bit over powering with a banana back bone.

Old rating. Really liked it before I got into beer a lot. Overall, still not a bad sixer for drinking. Sweet, apricot taste over a thin body. Just fine.

Wonderful beer. The most popular beer that they have. This beer is amber with a distinct taste.
