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.

Interesting... an ale described as a mystery beer? I tasted a fruity wheat beer more than an ale but it did have some characteristics of an ale. I believe Magic Hat collaborated a fruity wheat beer with an ale and this is what you get. A beer that makes you wonder if you’re drinking an ale or a wheat. I tasted Apricot and Peach flavors.

Very different PA. I love this brew on occasion, but could not drink it more than a few times a month. It has a hint of fruity taste / smell. Difficult to explain, holds a head and nice golden / amber color. I would suggest trying this one out if you get the chance.

Like they say themselves, not quite an IPA. Pretty refreshing; starts dark and ends on a lighter note. Notes of Blackberry, birch, burnt fennel and brown sugar. Finished with a nasal combination of citrus, malt and apricot

MrHangover (4410) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2017
Can, brought back from Florida. Pours a hazy golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is a bit weird, some red fruits, bready malts and yeast and a very mild touch of citrus in the back. Flavor is about the same, medium fruity sweet, dry citrussy middle and malty finish. Sparkling and crisp mouthfeel due to fairly high carbonation. Aftertaste is mild bittersweet. Meh, ok.

From a can. A thin bodied beer with coarse carbonation, pretty standard but drinkable.
