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.

Cloudy beer with a good amber to orange color; cloudiness suggests presence of at least some wheat despite the absence of strong bread, spice, or citric fruit. I liked its hint of apricot or some sweet fruit, and I liked the combination of hops. Still, not terribly exciting. Could have been more hopped.

I've had this beer before, in any number of other rather fresh fruity beers, with a touch of indistinct lagerish ale underneath, with a wheaty tanginess. This one is better made then most and warms great (quality ingredients, nice hop spice), but is a bit of a yawner nonetheless.

Pale gold, thick white head. Hops and lunaria aromas's, as well as something perilously close to artificial sweetener. Taste yields apricot, bread-yeast - and that's it. How magic. Mouthfeel is like sparkling water: refreshing but empty. Oh well, well-tried. Not succeeded.

rauchbier (3908) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2003 Bottled. GBBF2003. Good bright golden colour, modeate thin white head and moderate condition. Dominant apricot aroma, sweet and banana wheaty in the mouth with the apricot more hidden. Quite oily in the mouth and finish with the apricot lingering

Poured a mundane golden color with almost no head to it. Had a pleasent hoppy aroma with a hint of apricot. Tasted like a watered down version of a lackluster pale ale. It finished dry. Im suprised this beer was listed as a fruit beer.

Ungstrup (38154) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2003
The aroma is fresh, malty and hoppy - a little artificial. It is amber and has a fine head. The flavor is like the aroma combined with a strong note of peach.

Bottle: So-so nose Fruity, apricot peach. Light orange golden color. Dried fruit taste with a slight hop background. Quick watery finish. Has that summer beer theme going on. Kinda refreshing. Should of pumped up the fruit. Another mediocre offering from a Magic Hat.

Deep golden and slightly hazy with a effervescent head that dissipated quickly. Aromas of citrus and fruit with a bit of graininess (wheat?) to it. Palate is quite thin and I found it slightly watery. Flavors of honey, orange and corriander stand out. Slight metallic aftertaste.

Not too impressed with this one. Tasted like a pale ale with a slight hint of apricots. Some apricots in the nose. Overall not too much goin on here.
