General Thoughts:
#9 Not Quite Pale Ale is a really interesting beer. This beer is a really light, refreshing beer, with a distinguishable fruity flavour to it. There is a real taste of Apricots / Peaches to this beer, which you may think is an odd and somewhat distracting flavour to a beer, however it is subtle enough that it doesn't detract from the actual beer flavour from the hops and malt. If you think you wont like it because I have said Apricot / Peaches, honestly give it a try you will be pleasantly surprised with this beer. This is also a nice smooth beer, with little carbonation. One of the best things about this beer is the refreshing quality that it has, this would be a perfect summer beer. #9 Not Quite Pale Ale is a really unique and different beer, something that will surprise you, it is an easy drinking beer, one that you could keep going back to. This beer is not overpowering in anyway and has a nice mid range 5.1% ABV, which is great. On the whole this is a really interesting, great, full flavoured beer, that will really surprise your taste buds on that first sip. I was really surprised with this beer, it wasn't what I was expecting and i'm really happy for the surprise. I would recommend this beer to everyone as a beer that would be enjoyed on a hot summers day.
