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.

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.

Had it in a bottle and in a pint glass from tap. Very good. Light and refreshing but would go with many different foods or on its own. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at 1048 Jazz and Blues, Montgomery. Bit sweetish with an aroma of peach, apricot, and notes of berries. Bit softly hopped, mild bitter. Body is medium. Not bad but a bit too much like a Fruit Beer, not enough Pale Ale.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2018 Lightly hopped, notes of apricot. Crisp, floral, good carbonation. Good for an autumn day, maybe around Oktoberfest. Would pair well with the right cheese, but not a cheesecake. Not an every day beer for me.

This is about as good or slightly better than expected. What I like about #9 is that it has a smooth mouthfeel...good refreshing daytime/lighter beer. The flavor is nothing to write home about, but it is there with the light to medium malt a light noticable hop (decent quality hop) end. The fruit is either peach, apricot, mango, or a combination. Orange appearance...slightly above average. Going to New England (Providence and Boston) in a few days for a week, so curious to see if Magic Hat is around there to try some others. I would get this again though, since the price seems ok.

The beer has got a hazy brownish colour with a low head and thin body. Aroma of flowers and fruits. taste of flowers, fruits, mild beer and spices. Fruity finish.

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.
