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.

A solid brew that can be drank when you are in the mood for something light. Solid fruit flavors. A staple for the more casual beer drinker.

Best choice when only faced with larger commercial fizzy brews. Limited head, good carbonation. While not too familiar with MH’s other beer, I would expect this beer would be pretty good without the apricot essence. Good maltiness underneath the fruitness

Bottled. Very sweet with a burst of peach and apricot flavoring. Light on the palate and very smooth going down. Great for the late spring and early summer.

On tap at The Pub in Whitewater WI. Couldnt get over the mild, but unmistakable apricot taste. Think I liked it, but for not sure more than one a session.

Unexpected taste for an "almost@" pale ale. Super fruity, in a startling at first but pleasant way after the surprise wears off. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice fruity aroma. Pretty good flavor. Good for a session beer, but I am a big Magic Hat fan.

LawBadger (24) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2009
12 oz bottle: Pours a golden yellow with a very slight white head. Some lacing. A very nice aroma with strong notes of apricot and maybe a little wheat/yeast or citrus. Tastes of wheat, apricot, another fruit I cant put my finger on (pear), and hints of honey. Im somewhat surprised by the level of carbonation and fruitiness here, but overall an alright beer.

cwondo (24) - Rochester, Michigan, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Bottle. Cloudy golden color, white frothy head that goes away quickly. aroma of apricot, peaches, apples - fruity - with a touch of hops. Smells almost like a cider. Flavors come in quick, short bursts all overpowered by the sweet, tart apricot. A tiny bit of hop at the end, followed by a strange tangy aftertaste. The mouth feel reminds me of champagne - tickling the tongue then dry.

A good sturdy fruity beer that has a good amber color and a nice fruit aftertaste.

Citrus aroma with a mild apricot finish. Pours an orangy amber color with minimal head. Smooth drinking with no offensive after taste. Not bad.
