Bronzed body with a ring of head. Feint apple juice nose. The mix of fruity apple and light grain flavor doesn’t work well here. Very dry apple skin finish. Mish-mash of competing, but not harmonious, flavors.

12 July 2015, tap at Moose’s Tooth Pub and Pizzaria. Light orange and a tad hazy. Nose is sweet apple pie. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Lots of apple, not much ale. Pretty sweet and spiced apple pie. Nice.

Love the taste, you can drink it and not feel stuffed. I’m not a big beer fan, this is one of 4 that I can really say I like :)

Golden in color, hazy with a thin head. Green apple aroma and light flavor. This was a fruit beer that’s for sure, Not my style of beer by adding apple. A Freshman girls brew for sure.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Tap] Part of a sampler at the brewpub in early September. Pours a milky looking yellow color with no head on top. Sweet aroma of hard cider, tart green apples and mild vanilla. Tastes like one part cider and one part light lager. Light body and mouthfeel. Lingering sweetness with mild cinnamon/spice notes. Drinkable and unique, but I can’t see myself enjoying too much of this.

6/19/2009: Hard Apple Ale is opaque with an apple/peach color and a foamy white head. The aroma is like cooked homemade applesauce with a whisp of alcohol. The flavor is an incredible marriage of good apple cider and beer. It is slightly sweet and slightly tart at the same time. It has a medium-light body to it. Overall this beer is thirst-quenching and refreshing. It would say that this is the best apple beer that I have had so far!
Draught (sample) at The Moose’s Tooth in Anchorage, Alaska. Rating #6 for this beer.
