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.

Tranquillity (2206) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2016
Draft. Looks like a lager, almost no head. The aroma is extremely strong, like perfume, and the taste is also extreme but not necessarily in a good way.

ffbot (406) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 24, 2016
Odd that this doesn’t have too high a rating, I liked it. good presence of hots and other tastes to it, I didn’t know what this was cause it says it’s an IPA and it is not. So it’s "almost a pale ale" but to me it taste like a small twist on an old classic. Which, since ipa’s can tend to be similar, it nice

prawlie (1572) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2016
Draught. Very light and fruity. Solid malt backbone that comes through after the Turkish delight! Its a bit odd all said and done though.

koleminer20 (3298) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2016
12 oz bottle shared with ebone1988. This one is going to be a flaming turd. The pour is a darker gold with a thin white colored head and a small collar. There is a bit of lace left on the glass. The aroma is garbage. There is a strong wheatiness to it that just isn’t good. There is no discernible hop, and there is a huge lack of fruit. For what this one is promising it’s just turning out to be a wheat turd. The flavor is equally bad. There is a little bit of raspberry in it, but it’s just garbage. It’s sweet and medicinal, and there is no apricot at all. The mouth feel is thin and slick with a lack of carbonation and a medicinal aftertaste. This is just a piece of junk. Damnit.

ebone1988 (1763) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2016
Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is old, fruit punch syrup, raspberry, malt, not good. Appearance is light golden with a touch of red, off white head, clear. Taste is...wheat. Medicinal raspberry, metallic, not much else. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, almost no carbonation, metallic aftertaste. Overall, damn 1001 Beers list. This one sucks.

Pours clear yellow with a white head. Aroma of apricot, citrus and toast. Taste follows nose.

Canned. Kind of blah. Flat and uninteresting mouthful. A bit wheaty taste at the end. Eh it's okay.
