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

Bottle
Amber, creamy head. Perfumed aroma. Flavor is also overly perfumed, like in soap, strikes me as artificial, grainy cardboard in backgound. Light body. Not my cup of tea

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Bottle: Poured light orange with a big off white head. Had at around 55 degrees. Aroma of apricots and peaches, earthy hops. Flavor is all apricot with same earthy hops. Short finish. I thought this was good. I could drink more of this.

Crockett (1110) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2005
One word, Aprihop. Its better. Sorry, deal with it. Pours deep gold light amber with a short white head. Aroma of barnyard, yeast, peach skins, light hops, toasted grainy malts. Fruit, peach more than apricot, a little licorice. Green hop bitter, sweet sappy resin. Balanced but not very deep in character. Decent.

On tap at the Mad Raven in Waltham, Mass. Had a nice smoked fruit flavor - sort of like a dry fruit compot taste. Hopped and smooth.

Always a favorite. Nice pale ale with that mystery fruitiness- fig, prune, apricot. Nice hopped finish.

This is a unique tasting beer which tastes better to me as you work your way through the glass. Great lacing, and an interesting color.

openwindow (67) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 31, 2005
Very unique beer. Very stong fruity aroma (not sure Id have pinpointed apricot if I wasnt aware it was in there). Taste is sweet, with equal parts of fruit and hops. Aftertaste has a slight hoppy flavor, but is dominated by the fruit flavor. Not usually a fan of fruit beers but this one is unique and different. MUCH better draft than bottle.
