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.

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.

Served in a Pilsner Glass at a British restaurant, it was chilled, but not as cool as it should have been. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
