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.

Had this beer while outside at a BBQ. That being said it is a pretty decent summer beer. Light gold color with light hops flavor. Notes of citrus and apricot. Nothing special, but you could do worse.

I used to like #9 a lot more than I do now. The smooth apricot flavor is still nice, but doesnt do it for me like it used to.

Tried this beer in a little Irish Pub just outside of Time Square. I have to say, this discovery was one of the hilights of my trip. If this is a fruit beer, its well concealed inside a pale ale. Brilliant aroma with a delicate assorted fruit aftertaste. Must have more!

Rating #34 for 2012 12oz bottle cold from a tulip glass. Beautiful aroma of citrus, honey, wheat, and faint spices. Bright amber color quickly vanishing head no lacing. Taste was sweet very mild hops with some honey. Palate was dry low carbonation finished smooth.

Clean appearance, orange color, poor head retention. Aromas of malt, yeasty esters and slightly floral. Tastes sighty malty, vanilla, biscuit, spicy, fruity. Body is watery with a decent level of carbonation, spiciness lingers and finishes dry.

PhatCatt (76) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2016 Yes, it is not "not quite pale" but still drinkable. Roasty malts, holiday baking dough, pineapple, and ends with a nice floral tone. Overall good, but too dark.

Chronoflash (76) - New York, USA - SEP 13, 2010
A clear orange-gold body and a dense white head with very low persistence. The aroma is heavily of apricot and orange peel, with a slight spiciness but no to low maltiness. A light body carries a very tart-sweet flavor, with a sharp bite on the finish. Not a terribly wonderful beer, and far too tart to be complex.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a straw colored gold with a wispy white head. Has a fruity aroma of peaches, apricots and raspberries. Very little bite from the hops that were used. Although not my kind of beer, I was somewhat suprised. It was quite refreshing. Wouldnt mind trying it again on a hot summer day. I guess if you like the fruity tasting stuff, give it a try!
