On tap at Triangle Wine Co. Pours a clear gold with a very small white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Aroma is mostly apples, but has a little spice, citrus and a very slight malt backing as well. Taste lies mostly within the realm of sweet apples and candied sugar. Body is average, texture is slick and slightly creamy. Slick mouthfeel, heavy carbonation. Overall this is a pretty decent beer. I’m not a huge cider or fruit beer fan but this one is pretty easy to drink and the taste isn’t offensive. Worth a shot.

Drake (10406) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear pale amber color with a large foamy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of caramel malts, apples, stone fruit. The taste is apples, tart lemon, caramel malts. Bright, medium bodied, average carbonation. 50th Flying Dog rating!

Rake. Keg. Yet another pretty scarce Flying Dog brew at the Rake. Thanks again fo Rich Dinwoodie and Mike Hill for securing this stuff for us rabid UK drinkers! It’s a clear gold beer with no real head which is something of a surprise as the beer certainly has adequate crispy carbontation. Light thin malt cream. Fresh crispy apple. Whisper of citric hops. Crisp dry finish. A definite cider vibe here but with enough malt and hops to remimd that this is a beer! Tasty!

Pale yellow, some lacing. Faint aroma of hard cider. Flavor is slightly bitter, somewhat tannic, with a bit of grain peeking it’s head through. Finishes dry. Apple is hard to detect but when sampled along side the cider made from the same apples, the flavor explodes. This creates an amazing contrast which should be tried.

Slipstream (2217) - USA - DEC 25, 2013
Lightly sour apple ale, with a nice balance between cider & APA flavors. This odd style isn’t a real favorite, but this was solid. On draft at Good Beer.

DrSilverworm (8336) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2014
~1oz sample on tap at Lock 27. Clear golden, slightly orange color. Thin off-white head. ABV labeled 8$. Pints go for $5.50. Musty apple aroma in the nose, light spice. Nice light funk to it... Moderate sweet taste, lightly spicy, light bitter. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation, and more dry finish. Surprisingly decent apple ale. Hides bigger ABV well, and has a nice bigger flavor that isn’t too cloying sweet or slick.. Nice dryness. Good stronger apple ale.

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - NOV 6, 2014
On tap @ SL Liquors. Pours a slightly murky deep amber color with a two finger fluffy off white head. Smells of apples, cinnamon, spices, and fruity malts.Tastes of fruity malts, apple cider, spices, bread, nutmeg. Taste has a tiny bit less apple than the nose had and is a little less sweetness. Light to medium body and moderate carbonation.
