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 am not quite sure what this is - is it a wheat beer ? it is not an IPA.

Sometimes, a can of this in the summer is really quite nice. And if I'm somewhere backstage and there are free beers, I'll probably pick this over the other options. But other than that, I just don't really enjoy this any more.
