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.

Pours a hazy orange color with a one-finger foamy white head. Smells of toasted malts, a hint of apricot. Tastes of bready malt with just a faint fruitness, finishes fruity. Medium-light body with medium carbonation, foamy mouthfeel and crisp finish.

Poured from 12oz bottle into glass. No bottling date information found.
Clear, medium amber colored body. Creamy off white head sticks around. Leaves a few spots of lacing.
Aroma is predominately floral and slightly sweet. Grassy, vegetal in the background.
Quite a floral grape emphasis in the flavor, with some minor hop bitterness at the end. Rather dry finish.
Medium thick body. Okay carbonation.
Tastes like a old school craft creation. Comes from the "Magic Hat". Overall, kind of thin in flavor but has that grape floral signature.

great beer; i’ve been drinking it for years, but reading that the style was “fruit/vegetable beer” kind of made me feel like i was living the end of Soylent Green

Decent beer that’s easy to drink and always a safe bet. Nice golden color, some nice head without much lingering lacing. Smells faintly of fruit, tastes mainly of malt and a little fruity sweetness. Not much hop taste at all. Thin mouthfeel, decent carbonation. Slightly sweet but overly so.
