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.

Purchased a 22 oz Joe Lewis at the local supermarket for 2.99. It says best by date on neck of bottle, but damned if I could find said date. I wonder if it was a long time ago?!? Pours a nice light copper color, with about an inch of thick, creamy head which dissipates after a minute or so.

I dunno if this bottle is old, but it smells not good. Kind of a weird, fruity and metallic smell, and the metallic note is only amplified by taking a drink. There are certain beers, usually APA's that just simply don't taste good to my palate, and this beer has that quality. To me, it tasted like a much cheaper beer with a hint of biscuity malt. Overall, I just don't find it that good.
