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.

Gold hued with a half inch of foam on top. Apricot on the nose, but it is faint. I take a sip and, whoa Apricot! That's it. Very one note. Not intensely sweet, but not too pleasing to taste. The flavor definitely sticks with you well after the swallow.
