A sort of dry, crisp, fruity, refreshing, not-quite pale ale. #9 is really impossible to describe because there's never been anything else quite like it. A secret ingredient introduces a most unusual aroma which is balanced with residual sweetness.
A version of an English pale ale with a fruity twist. The company is mum about the flavoring agent, but dozens of beer blogs reference apricot as the secret ingredient.
No. 9 does have a fruit-forward profile, but it doesn't exactly scream apricot. The flavor comes close to peach tea with a lemony tang. There's just enough pale malt for good balance.
The beer is of mild strength. Chill well for a brisk, summer quaff.
