Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

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.

Fruity beer to be enjoyed during the warmer weather months. Just finished some yard work and wasn't looking to combine with a particular type or style of food (which might be limited given the distinctive flavors).

Have had this beer in the past, but probably not for the last 2 years, Bought it as part of a 'sampler' case.

Bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A minimal head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange copper color with good clarity and a slight vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Toasted malts, apricot, and pale malts.

Taste: Same as above. Nothing extraordinary here.

Mouthfeel: A bit smooth, refreshing, light bodied, low carbonation, and a little chewy.

Overall: Enjoyed over the years and such a simple beer. Cheers to a sunny day.
