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.

Bottle. It’s a clear, golden beer with a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is bery berryish and sugary fruity, with some candy. The flavor is pretty much the same, with a pleasant bitterness and lemon notes. Medium body, quite dry. Fruity and berryish finish with a nice bitterness and some lemon peel. It’s a decent beer ondeed, but also rather boring. 121110

355ml bottle (Bacchanalia, Cambridge)

Pleasant fruity aroma, light and uplifting. Rich orange, large frothy persistent head. Fairly watery palate. Watery taste too. Some peachiness and red berries too. Lawnmwer beer. Bugger all finish after a brief burst of peach. Meh.

A: #9 is a cloudy light amber color with a fluffy white head that doesn’t leave much, if any, lacing in the glass.

S: The smell is incredibly sweet, and not necessarily in a good way. A lot of artificial fruit smell, mostly apricot.

T: The taste is all fake, sugary, candy-sweet apricot. There are probably some other flavors in there, but the aforementioned "quality" is just overbearing.

M: The mouthfeel is surprisingly decent. The body is medium and there is moderate carbonation.

D: This is one of the least drinkable beers I’ve ever had. It’s just so sickeningly sweet that I tried mixing a bit of Stone IPA in it to make it a bit more palatable. I finally just gave up and drank the IPA instead.

MiP (15981) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2010
Draught. Almost clear dark golden colour. Very small white head. Weak fruity aroma. The flavour is also fruity, slightly bready. Hint of grain in the finish.

3.5
bhensonb (15847) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 31, 2009
UPDATED: APR 6, 2014 Bottle from Archer Liquors. Pours clear copper with a decent finely bubbled head. Nose is largely apricot. Love that. There’s a bit of sour pit like aroma too. Near medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor seems perfumey nectarine and apricot. It’s lightly sweet, but that’s more than balanced by the pit suck bitter character in the finish. My. Yes, mine. Tasty.
Re-rate: Sticking with the original.

djd07 (15661) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2009
On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours a orange copper color with a medium frothy white head. The aroma is a fruit hops with apricot and peach. Decent spotty lacing on the glass. The taste is a sweet fruit with crisp clean finish. Very easy to drink, a very good fruit beer from Magic Hat.

Bottle poured a clear amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of bread, fruittiness and a hint of spice. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, pear, light straw and a hint of spice with a crisp fruity finish.
