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.

darkvibe (68) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2002
Light, just the right carbonation and great taste. The aftertaste leaves something to be desired, though.

basaywhat (201) - 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.

kevinator (1888) - 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.

mzaar (2910) - 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.

plaugher (425) - 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..

Bronze copper in color. Pours with a tall head spicy aroma. Lot of malt fruit not an ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Purdyd (20) - Fairfield, Connecticut, USA - AUG 6, 2016
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

PlainsDrifter (93) - Adelphi, Maryland, USA - AUG 2, 2016
Pours golden with white head. Fizzy. Malty sweet with hop bite. Very drinkable. Hay, grass, and grain aroma.

eruizgarcia (319) - - 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

Not quite Pale, not quite good, not quite sure why its in the fruit beer category.
