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.

Kentucky

3.4/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Crystal clear and golden in color with about an inch of quick to settle white foam. The overall brightness of the beer and liveliness of the carbonation make this an inviting proposition. It would have been nice for the head to stay around a while longer.

S: The initial scent is strong with grainy husks and apricots. Dig a little deeper and you get a fairly good balance of hay and lighter bread-y malts along with some flowery hop aroma and some fruity esters.

T&M: Hits the taste buds with that familiar graininess and tingles the tongue with the carbonation. More straw than hay in the flavor with a supporting lemony citrus quality to help with balance. Mostly crisp and clean in the finish.

D: This seems like a beer best enjoyed in the heat of the summer months. An unspectacular but refreshing light natured brew that would probably appeal to a large segment of macro drinkers. Easy to put away.
