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.

buerckholtz (33) - asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 25, 2007
Porus slightly hazy orange color with a quickly deminishing head. Aromas of apricot and slight citrus hop. Has a thin palate, a bit fruity, prickly carbonation "bite" has a mass produced flavor so to speak. Getting better as it warms up, more malt aromas and flavor comming through. Not bad but nothing special. Im not sure what all the hype is about.

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

plaugher (438) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 25, 2016
12oz bottle. Clear golden pour, initial white bubbly head which dissipates to nothing fairly quickly. Malty nose, some muted fruit (maybe apricot?) Curious graininess almost like some rye notes. Closer to a bitter or a lager..

kevinator (1985) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2016
Better than I remember. Malty and spicy aroma. Light amber in color with a good head. Medium body and carbonation. Flavors are mild malty, some English character with graininess. Decent.

basaywhat (210) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2016
12 oz bottle. Pours amber with a one finger white head. Aroma of citrus, slightly floral, and a bit of Belgian funk. Taste is sweet, citrus, honey. Light to medium body.

eruizgarcia (322) - - JUL 24, 2016
Pretty good beer, but not nearly as unique as the description claims. Sweet and slightly malty, a bit fruity - almost overripe fruit flavor. Easy to drink and fairly well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mzaar (2999) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2016
Flaska. Klar rdrosa med ett litet vitt skum. Dofter av hallon och grs. Smakinslag av hallon, grs och jordgubbar. Ltt syrlig avslutning med en artificiell stma i bakgrunden. Lite vl kolsyrig fr min del. Till slut blir det vl mycket hallonlsk ver det hela.

Magic hat number 9 is a good damn ale - is it an ale, it's a mystery. Fruity and crisp. Makes me wonder what magic hat one thru eight tasted like... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
