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.

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.

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.

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.

Pours a light amber to straw color with medium head. Sweet, almost like wheat but then moves towards peaches and apricots. Nice finish. Not really my style but a good try at something different.

Perhaps, my father hyped this up too much, but I didnt see too much special going on. A decent light amber pour with apricot tones. Best part is still the little fortunes/sayings on the cap.

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, its thin crisp and refreshing. Im starting to really like this type of fruit beers. Nice sweet aroma.

This "fruit beer," which it is not truely at all, is rather lousy. In most pubs this beer is sold as a lager or a brown ale. From the moment it touches ones tongue, an immediate spalsh of perfume is noted. The uninformed novice may understand that scent/taste to be "fruitiness." I fouthrightly disagree. The odors and flavors are much more flowery than fruity. I would imagine a better flavor could be attained from drinking old rose water from a vase. This beer leaves a soapy coating on the roof of the tasters mouth as well. Overall, considering the pricetag on a pint of this in Philadelphia is over five dollars, this is a beer to avoid.

This is one of those beers that is kind of weird. A lot of fruit and according to the label apricot. Slightly watery but not in a bad way, refreshing. Dont even bother if you dont like hints of fruit.
