Notes/Commercial Description:
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 sort of dry, crisp, refreshing, not-quite pale ale. #9 is really impossible to describe because there's never been anything else quite like it.

I was surprised I liked this beer but it was good! I would definitely order it if they had it at a restaurant, think I will buy a 12 too! It is different no real flavors but not watery. Not bitter like many beers can be.

i was told this had a unique flavor...I wasn't lied too from what I tastes. Which I'm not sure what I do taste. I feel as if there is some vegtables used in the brewing process. I gain a hint a tartness that is paired well with a mild sweetness. For any of cooks out there, I do reccomend using this to marinade chicken with.
