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.

Dark gold color, clear, with light effervescence. First taste is light, thin and slightly tinny. Some lightly sharp metallic hops, perhaps with some lemon grass and anise flavors, more of the anise in the finish. Smell is airy, tinny, simple. Just leaves you wanting something more on the palate, just completely falls apart. There seem to be a number of problems with this one. At least it has a bit of crispness to it, but that doesn’t make me want to drink it regularly.

somewhat hazy amber color. Medium white head. Hints of apricot and citrus in the aroma with the former being more prevalanet. Medium body, somewhat fruity taste. Has a medium amount of hops, but the flavor and hop content combine to form a somewhat bizarre aftertaste.

The beers aftertaste is very offensive in my book, I don’t even know how to describe it but the first few times you have one it is almost tough to finish. As a few days went by I started to acquire somewhat of a feel for it with an open mind, but I never would be able to say that I actually enjoyed it.

Pours a hazy orangish reddish color. Aromas of light apricots, malts, and bread. Flavor is wheat bread with apricot notes. Wasn’t all that fruity tasting. Just a mild touch at the finish.

Cool pour... Almost a pinkish-nectarine color. Very small head and minimal lace. The bouquet is of definite apricot. Very light flavors and palate textures. I get notes of apricot and nectarine behind pale malt and wheat. It has a bitter apricot finish. Not bad for a fruit beer at all. Lacks a bit in complexity, but is light and refreshing.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2008 From the bottle. I was expecting more sweetness and fruity flavor, but thankfully, they didn’t over do it. One of the better fruit beers I’ve had. Originally, I rated this beer a little low, but I have come around to enjoy this beer a lot.

bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - JUN 3, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2006 Pours an almost pink amber color with a smallish head. Aroma is of apricot. Flavor is light , and crisp with some fruity undertones. Not bad for a lighter beer.

You can knock "fruity" tastes in beer. And, admitedly, when you hear apricot and beer, things can get a bit scary. However, Magic Hat has done a nice job with this one. Makes for a great "Black Magic" underneath Guinness and is a great way to finish a night of drinking. Nice malty / apricot flavor.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear orange with thin white head that leaves only a ring in my glass. Nose is wheaty and yeasty with apricot and a touch of peaches. Flavor is dominated by apricot. Always tastes much better out of the bottle than on draft. Not too sweet; a good session beer.

Orangish coloring. It tasted like apricots and grass, I don’t want to drink apricots or grass and that is what this was. Horrid, the worst beer I have ever had.
