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.

This was sheer treachery- almsot painful to drink it was so horrible- purchased a 12 pack sampler on a trip this past week and tried this and one other and threw the entire rest in the trash can. By far the worst beer I have ever had in 43 years of drinking. Someone lied to these people-

AlKHall (161) - West Hartford, Connecticut, USA - OCT 27, 2006
Very interesting flavor. Mostly apricots and peaches. Golden appearance a little syrupy and sweet. Not bad, but not smtg to drink too much of....

Pours a nice deep amber color with a large beige head. Aroma is very fruity and a bit malty. flavor was very fruity and very dry. i found myself gulping this one down in a rapid type manner. Overall to too bad, but not to great either.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2006
Sampled at Real Beer Expo (Rochester). Med. golden colour, no head. Caramel, toffee and apricot on the nose. Fairly carbonated and med. bodied. Definite apricot finish. Fairly balanced.

cbrixius (136) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2006
Not much going with the aroma, unless my sniffer was broken. Poured reddish gold with a white dissipating head. Not a great taste, I sensed apricot in their. A pretty dry texture, somewhat bitter.

emacgee (4674) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Poured a pale golden brew. Had a thin white head with lacing. The aroma was sweet and fruity. Tasted hoppy and had a strong apricot taste. Palate was sharp and crisp and the finish was hoppy.

apricoty aroma watery finish almost more like jail juice than an actual beer not the worst thing that hit my lips

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 21, 2006
On tap. Clear light amber with thin white head. Aroma is apricot and wheat. Flavor is apricot, wheat, and slight hops. This is a bit better than Pyramid Apricot Ale, of which I find tastey as well.

LooseCannon (938) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2006
Hazy Amber color with a small white head. Fruity aroma and taste with a peachy after taste

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2006
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.
