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

Also on draught at Jet Rock in the Philadelphia airport (Terminal B, I believe). A wheaty, apricot thing my wife ordered. Good enough, I suppose. Not as good as DFH Aprihop. Better than Pyramid Apricot Weizen.

12oz bottle. Hazy and orange colored. Slightly golden and pink grapefruit juice hue. Spotty white head. Apricot and peach nose. Citrus and tons of different fruits. Initial dry and slightly bitter flavor. Then the sweet honeyish flavors come through. Then the cornucopia of fruit flavors. Of course, apricots and peaches. But there are other notes of orange, lemon and lime, slight grapefruit and plumes. The finish is crisp and sharp. The hops are citrusy and dry. Tart and sour flavors intermingle with sweet and sugary nuances. This is definitely tasty, and the fruit flavors are enhanced by the dry finish.

This is my personal favorite MH brew. It has a brown-like ale pour. It smells of hops and apricot...aprihops. This is a great pale and has a smooth taste that all can enjoy.

This is my first of beer of my next 100 beers. This pale ale was purchased at The caboose in Ashland, VA. The pale ale was thin with little body. The head was white with about one finger. The color was a straw. There was fruitiness and some sweetness. This was just a unremarkable beverage.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2014 On tap at Taphouse Grill, Norfolk VA, 4/25/06: The bartender couldnt really tell me what style this was, but I tried it anyway. What I got was a mellow yellow-orange beer with a quickly ebbing head. It had a smooth mouthfeel. It was sweet and fruity with an almost berry or apricot essence. But it was underpinned with a light malt goodness. Good warm weather beer.

On tap. Never choose a beer with the word "mysterious" in the first sentence of its description. Disappointing.
