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.

This one is awful! Doesn't taste anything but yeast!! Citrus and fruity but too sharp yeast flavor. Never going to try again! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a can. Amber in color, nice head. Apricots dominate the aroma and taste. Bitter finish. Nice beer to kick back with and relax.

Amber gold with a huge head that settles nicely into the pint glass. Nose is fruity with banana and apricot undertones, some hops as well. Taste is similar to a normal American Pale Ale plus fruit, not too bad.

the overall beer is bad. what makes it of note is the apricot finish.... just enough to make this not taste like macromuck. anyway i know i need more so i had it in the baltimore airport. out of a bottle into a tumbler. i remember when i thought this was an awesome beer.

Bright gold pour with a white head. Apricoty with some vanilla elements. Really good. The caps are cool too.

12 oz bottle, many times. Never been a big fan, although I have friends who swear by it. Almost like mixing a Budweiser and a good IPA, with a little exta sweetness thrown in. I don’t like the flavor much, so it’s not drinkable for me, but it’s light enough to drink a few in one night if you’re a fan.

Beerbuddha (100) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - JUL 1, 2010
Sample bottle sent by Magic Hat Brewery for review Appearance: This beer pours a a golden amber with a nice white head. A little lacing is present. Smell: Whoa! Amazing apricot aroma. Very powerful apricot presence. Taste: Huge apricot sweetness with a mild hop bitterness. To me it’s apricot sweet in a good way. Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium carbonation. Drinkability: This beer is perfect for summertime. Nice crisp beer with hints of apricots. This beer has potential here in New Orleans if sold properly. I have a feeling it’ll mostly be marketed to the ladies.

On tap at Grandview Cafe, Grandview, Ohio. A clean clear crisp golden copper color with an exremely thin off white head. A fruity aroma, particularly apricot. The taste is that of an apricot malt, & sweet citrus. This beer had minimal carbonation and was very easy to drink but lacked a noticable alcohol content. The bartender said it reminded him of a Samuel Adams. I did not see the comparison but is an OK beer.
