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.

KajII (801) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUL 10, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2011 Bottle, The pour was a clear golden copper in color with a thin (1/2 finger or less) frothy white head that dissipated rapidly and had fair lacing. The aroma was of moderate grain malts, a mild floral hop and an earthy yeast with a definite hint of apricot and maybe a little honey. The taste was a little malty and had a nice fruity note in the beginning then shifted to a slightly bitter hoppy flavor at the end with just a hint of spice that left the flavor hanging around for a decent amount of time. Mouthfeel was excellent, with the body being light to medium and a the texture being creamy at first then rather dry at the end with a nice lively carbonation. Overall, the mild bitter finish and the flavors that were left to linger allowed you to enjoy the full embodiment of this brew. Nice and tasty and quite drinkable.

One of the most interesting flavors I’ve ever tasted in a beer. Very nice fruit flavor with just a great overall taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The worst beer I have ever tasted or smelled. It literally made me sick and I barely finished one bottle.

12oz bottle at home. Clear golden pour with a fizzy, fading white head. Sweet fruit, mild maltiness, some yeast notes. Light body, smooth finish. OK.

Grumbo (3981) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2017
Bottle from New Beer Distributors, New York. Pours amber with a short lasting off-white head. Aroma of apricot, grain, yeast, light caramel, fruit and veg. Medium sweetness, moderate bitterness. Light to medium body, slight oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish is slightly dry.

AleRider78 (1456) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2017
Pours a pretty average amount of foamy head and has a golden amber appearance. Nice soapy lace. Has tropical like fruity aromas, mangos and apricots. Flavours are very fruity, some floral hops and grainy malts. The apricot comes through almost straight away. A little bit of tartiness and hints of bready malts as well. Fairly excessive carbonation. Mouthcoating sensation. Full bodied mouthfeel. Pretty good.

PhillyCraft (7939) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2017
Many bottles and drafts over the years unfortunately. Pours a hazy golden with one finger white head. Notes of caramel malt, sweet candy orange, artificial apricot, and pears. Pretty sweet and gross.

A bold introduction followed by a surprisingly soft hearty wheaty aftertaste, despite a hint of delicate hops ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Palate might be skewed cause of the head and humidity, but this is a tasty beer at Hollywood studios at Disney

Fisler (693) - Bamberg, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2017
Gold, gefiltert, schöne Perligkeit, ordentlicher Schaum. In der Nase ungewöhnlich würzig, keine Ahnung was genau ich da rieche. Im Trunk limonadig, Erdbeeren, mittig Malz, fruchtig, hinten bitter. Nicht schlecht - sehr unkonventionell.

pours clear light golden amber. the flavor is light and earthy. Its really hard to place any one flavor here. There is lingering wheat aftertaste, almost grainy. Its pretty well balanced without being malty at all. The sweetness comes from something else. since its such a big secret and I don’t believe in secret recipes- I’m going to call it flavorful piss water
