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

Pours golden with a small white head. The aroma is perfumy and fruity (berries and candy). Has an earthy, cereal malt note, a slight sweet fruityness (peachy) and a very mild bitter finish. Bland, thin. Boring.

This thing pours a hazy orange with a thick head that lasted the whole way. Let me start off off by saying this thing was weird. I think I gave it some "uniqueness" point just because I haven’t really decided yet if I like it or not. Very fruity almost like drinking an alcoholic version of the syup you find in canned fruit. Bubblegum noted. Don’t think I’ll visit this agian but yeah just like the commercial description says, impossible to describe.

pootzboy (1695) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2006
Bottle (Thanks Eric): Poured a hazey-amber orange ale in the pint glass...nice frothy sticky 2 finger cap lasts a while then laces the glass. Aromas of sweet malts and fruits: apricot-pear tones, some wet hay. Medium-light bpdy, decent malt presense, dry-sandy mouth feel, sharp fruity character. Starts very fruity with attenuated malt sweetness, fruit adjuncts and yeast by-brodusts combining to give a juicy fruit cocktail cider, mid palate more interesting flavors evolve: jolly rancher gum mixed with wet hay, some pine and citrus....finishes dry with a wheat presense and a growing bittering. A nice pale with a special edge from fruit additives.

Svesse (8284) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2006
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 30 Sep) Amber colour with small off-white head. Fruity nose with apricots, nuts and notes of orange marmalade. Fruity taste with apricots and canned peaches, rather dry finish with delicate hoppy notes. Nice one, but lacking something extra.

oh6gdx (26261) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2006
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, small white head. Aroma of caramel, malts, fruity hops and some slight hayish notes. Flavour is lots of apricot, hops, malts, grass and caramel. Smooth and refreshing, but not necessarily a superb flavour experience.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Bottle drank at the RFD with Ungstrup Golden color, light head, some lacing. Nose is sweet, malty, the flavor is fruity, lots of apricot, a fairly bland and somewhat tart extract type of beer. Not what I was expecting with so many flashing cool neon signs around with this logo on it.
