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.

The fruity aroma and taste was appreciated with the first gulp, but after 3 or for gulps it just got old and overdone. They need to tone this down some. There were some good hops hiding back there, but they couldn't get out from under all that fruit.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2004 Good thirst quencher. Slightly thin body. Overly strong apricot nose and flavor. Best in HOT weather with BBQ Chicken.

Strong apricot aroma, definately noticable on all levels. Great orange colour you'd expect from a nice pale ale. Good peach and apricot tones, but not enough beer tones. Some malt detected, but no hops...not a great beer.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2004 The first time I had this beer I thought it was great! I was like wow! It seemed to be bursting with so many flavors. The second time I drank it I thought of hair spray.

jjw2000 (72) - USA - MAR 29, 2003
UPDATED: APR 22, 2003 Sweet, slightly tangy peach flavor dominates and the light-medium body is consistent with the fruit flavor. Occasionally, might enjoy one in the sun, for a change of pace. Not a beer that I like to drink in quantity.

Cloudy dark yellow coloured, small head. Strong apricot aroma, not something i really like. Luckily the apricot is not that overwhelming in flavour. Bitter, watery brew.

Poured a medium amber color with an averaged sized head. Light Fruity (apricot) and yeasty aroma and taste. This one really didn’t do anything for me.

On tap at the RPI Pub Clubhouse. Pale red in color with almost no head. The aroma is very slight and difficult to distinguish. The taste however is quite refreshing. Notes of a pale ale come through, with a hoppy character. Also prevalent is a smooth yet hard-to-identify fruit flavor. A decent drink.
