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.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2007 Drank one of these at the Bonnaroo music festival 04’. Very refreshing and tasty in the summer hear. Amazing fruit essence and an overall good product.

I like fruit beers, but I don’t like apricot. The beer poured a cloudy gold producing a pale head that quickly dissolved. Mildly hoppy with flavor that hangs around after your done with it. Not bad, but not great.

I really didn’t think this was a fruit beer when I drank it on tap. Light amber color with a decent white head. Actually more hops in this than I expected. Weird. Flavor was slightly fruity, very good though. Nice finish.

this is really refreshing, especiallyat an abnormaly hot campground waiting around all day for Phish to play, and the phans sure do love this one, I think its probably b/c of that tripped out label, but it may also be because of the beer, citrus is the theme of this brew, and thats not a lie because its true.

I think they call this their IPA. Very bland and average. It’s like the lite beer of craft beers. I’m glad I didn’t pay for it, the magic hat rep did.

If only this beer tasted as well as it smelled. Thge aroma is very fruity making one think they will enjoy a nice american fruit beer. Sadly it just tastes like a "not-quite pale ale." It is like a retarded pale ale, one that has all the characterisitics without actually reaching them.

Bottle. Golden with thin white head. Aroma strong of apricots. Flavor is very fruity, light, with a little hop. I’ll drink it on a hot day.

Umm... I liked this beer in high school -- that should tell the whole story. Interesting beer to show someone who doesn’t think you can add apricot to a beer. Just don’t have them expect it to taste that good. No hops to speak of, relatively light (drinkable), reminded me of a beer-spritzer.

Color is murky gold, nose is very strong, flavor is distinctive, fruity essence with a distinct flavor, finish is much more subtle than taste for a nice well rounded beer.
