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.

GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, - OCT 30, 2005
Bottle from a Magic Hat sampler 12-pack split with blankboy, HogTownHarry and tupalev. Clear orange-amber with a small head. Aroma like lemon drops mixed with hair dye - weird, but actually sort of appealing. Body is fizzy. Mild flavour, with some notes of orange, apricot and sweet malt. A really strange beer.

Very good ale, crisp taste with a good aroma. Low IBU makes it a very drinkable beer compared to other ales that tend to overwhelm the palate after awhile.

One of the most interesting flavors I’ve ever tasted in a beer. Very nice fruit flavor with just a great overall taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The worst beer I have ever tasted or smelled. It literally made me sick and I barely finished one bottle.

12oz bottle at home. Clear golden pour with a fizzy, fading white head. Sweet fruit, mild maltiness, some yeast notes. Light body, smooth finish. OK.

Grumbo (4596) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2017
Bottle from New Beer Distributors, New York. Pours amber with a short lasting off-white head. Aroma of apricot, grain, yeast, light caramel, fruit and veg. Medium sweetness, moderate bitterness. Light to medium body, slight oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish is slightly dry.

AleRider78 (1522) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2017
Pours a pretty average amount of foamy head and has a golden amber appearance. Nice soapy lace. Has tropical like fruity aromas, mangos and apricots. Flavours are very fruity, some floral hops and grainy malts. The apricot comes through almost straight away. A little bit of tartiness and hints of bready malts as well. Fairly excessive carbonation. Mouthcoating sensation. Full bodied mouthfeel. Pretty good.
