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: OCT 22, 2005 the standard beer for magic hat. has a little citrus flavor to it but it could use some more hops. good beer that is always avilable.

On tap served in a pint glass. Pours an amber golden clear color. Aromas of malt. Little bitterness. Not sure why it’s an almost pale ale. Some sweet fruit tastes come through. Aftertaste is an unpleasant almost skunky quality.

Does not smell very good. Has a light color like apple juice, little bit fizzy. Almost no head on pour. Very strange flavor can’t really taste much. There’s a little bit of a fruit flavor on the back end. Overall not very impressed probably wouldn’t drink again.

A very fruity beer with very aromatic flavors and smells. Not for everyone, but you’ll love it if you enjoy those flavors.

Old-gold colored, slightly cloudy pour; small but persistent head. Definite tree fruit aroma (apricot and peach). Fruit nose consistent from sip to swallow. Fresh yeast complimented by fruit and malt; hops takes a back seat in this brew. Taste is not overly sweet, and while some disdain a fruit beer--seemingly on general principles--I’ve never seen anyone refuse a #9.

Only magic hat in my recollection. Im not as much into the sweeter beers but this was a good change.

Pours an off-amber hue. Smells are definitely fruity and almost floral. Really not a pleasant taste for me. Almost like red liquid medicine mixed with beer. Bittersweet finish and a lighter body. Although, better than most lagers at the bar. Nothing special.

A good beer. It smells strongly of apricots, but lacks the overwhelming fruit taste I had expected. I found it to be very enjoyable and easy to drink.

Poured pale yellow from a bottle with medium off-white head. Aromas of pitted fruits and sweet malt. Malty taste and overly sweet for my taste, with notes of peaches and apricots, but also of artificial sweeteners and extract flavours. Overall, wouldn’t order it again.

Smells of fruit, spices and a little nutty. Pours a nice amber with a "normal" head. Leaves a little aftertaste that is not a good thing!
