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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Slightly less than a finger's worth of audibly fizzy off-white colored head... Minimal retention gives way to a thin but full sheet of creamy lacing... The color is a slightly hazed pale gold... Loaded with a good bit of moderate paced carbonation throughout...

S - Very subtle all the way around... Some toasted malts... Passion fruit... Perhaps a touch of candied sugars... A vague nuttiness...

T - The taste is about what I expected... Some graininess... Lots of fruity notes... Some toasted malts... Not bad...

M - Of the lighter side of medium bodied... A slight lushness to start before turning into a bit of a fizzy mess... Even and consistent... Slightly refreshing, but rough around the edges...

D - Very pedestrian... Not a bad beer... A couple of notches above the typical BMC swill... Easy drinking... At 5.1% ABV, a couple of these could be had in a sitting, but I still wouldn't feel fully satisfied... There are better options out there...
