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.

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.

Pours golden orange with a white head. The aroma is very fruity, with lots of citrus including orange, apricot and peaches as well as some lighter malts. the flavor is more of the same with apricots and peaches being dominant as well as some bready malts. No real hop presence. Light mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Overall, a disappointing beer.

A thin tasting, apricot flavored beer. Apricot flavor is far to dominant and having more then one of these is pushing it. Aprihop by Dogfish is a much better choice.

I had this as a draft at the Wrigleyville Rooftops during a cubs game. Dark, amber looking. Strong aftertaste. Fruity.

beerchugger (717) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2010
Pours a clear yellow with a full white head that all but completely disappeared after about 30 seconds. No lacing to speak of either. The aroma actually reminds me of a kolsch more than anything. There is a slight fruitiness to it but no one individual fruit standing out above the rest. Just a soft sweet aroma with a touch of grass mixed in. The flavor is oddly grainy with a peachiness to it. The finish is short but is also where most of the flavor is delivered. Not too great.

Edmoe (241) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Pours yellow with a thin white head...very little retention. Subtle floral and fruity aroma. Hints of peach. Flavor is light, peachy, and subtly bitter. Thin bodied and mostly clean finish. Very light and drinkable with no hint of the 5.1% abv. Would be a good alternative to drinking light beer if it were lower in alcohol. EDIT: Just noticed that the web site says it is 4.6%...my bottle is labled 5.1%

Not bad on tap - did not like at all in the bottle. Hazy - slightly spicy beer. Average hop with a little bit of bread flavored malt. Drinkable.

rougeau13 (3280) - Richmond, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2010
Light colored with tiny head. Smells fruity though I can’t quite place what kind. Medium thin palate. Tastes like beer and Capri Sun or this is what beer would taste like if Minute Maid was brewing

dpento1 (236) - Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Pours a clear golden, with a small white head. Aroma of malts, sweet hops and fruit. Flavor of malts and dry fruit (apricots) not very sweet.

Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 7, 2010
12 oz bottle from Publix - Smells like pink grapefruit. Tastes like a raspberry beer. I didn’t know this was a fruit beer when I bought it, but it was quite apparent when I sniffed it.
