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.

Sweet, hop-filled aroma. Copper color, with noticeable floating particles. Taste compliments the nose, revealing a lush blend of sweet hops. Sits comfortably on the palate. A highly recommended session beer; especially good for summer evenings on a crisp night. One of the better sweet beers on the market.

It was not a beer out of the ordinary. It does have a little kick, hence the "not quite pale ale" on its label I guess. The taste needs a little getting use to, however after a few sips u really starts enjoying it. Overall I think is a very enjoyable drink. Cheers!

Way too fruity for my palate, interesting but wouldn’t purchase. I really do not like it due to sickening sweetness. In all fairness though, a well produced beer, but very weird taste, tastes like going camping i.e: very fruity and herbal with an almost raspberry aftertaste. Good beer if you want to get in touch with nature. Others try before you buy. Completely one of a kind though.

Strange beer. Looks somewhat orange tastes a little like a pale ale. More fruity flavors than anything - apricot maybe? That said, quite drinkable and well balanced.

Ok so I know what people think about this one but I really enjoyed it and I’m a Imperial Stout, ABt person. Now let me say that the enviroment played a big role in my rating. This is an outdoor, warm day fishing on the bank beer or a outdoor bbq beer. Like a little brother of DFH Aprihop. Lots of fruit and a little spice. Put this out in cans Magic Hat so I can take some to float the river!

On tap in Cheers, Boston. Light amber color with interesting aroma. Had an aftertaste of some sort of bread. Got more interesting as the flavor took hold.

12 Oz bottle. Clear golden color. Fruity apricot aroma. Taste is fruity with only slight bitterness at the end. Had it before... a little watery in the mouth feel.

This is my personal favorite MH brew. It has a brown-like ale pour. It smells of hops and apricot...aprihops. This is a great pale and has a smooth taste that all can enjoy.

Got the 12 pack of the testers. This stood out the most of them due to the highly unexpected flavor in here. I mostly tasted the apricot possibly peach most of all. Very nice in mouth feel, it’s thin crisp and refreshing. I’m starting to really like this type of fruit beers. Nice sweet aroma.
