3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear amber, white cover. Aroma is a clash of sour apple and sweet corn. The taste is more pleasant, light tart apple most of the way through, then a finish of corn and sweet malt. These flavors do best when they don’t try to meld.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head.
The aroma is very apple-y, sort of sweet smelling, with some tartness and a fair dose of yeastiness.
The flavor is banana bread right up front, this turns to more focus on tart apples and light toasted malt. The beer is fairly sweet, perhaps a little too sweet. I like the apple flavor here no doubt.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap. Clear golden color. No head and only a small ring around the neck of the glass. Aroma is sweet and apple like. Reminds me of apple jolly ranchers. Taste is slightly tart like green apples. Fairly thin as that is all I realt get. Still reminds me of apple jolly ranchers. Could use some more carbonation. Just looks dead and lifeless.

Bottle. Pours a straw yellow with a fizzy white head. Weak apple aroma with a hint of grains. Flavor was sweet apples, grainy malts and a touch of tartness.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Found this cider beer comba at the Ba Runi. Smells a little like apple. Taste is of course apple cider with more apple than I expected. Lager beer fer sure in the background. Looks like pale lager. Borders on sweet, a little more sweetness than I expected for a cider like beer. I’m used to the dry ciders, now. Decent co2. Not bitter to say the least. Yes, just simply an apple falvored beer, not many of those out there. Finish is just plain apple lager even tho it says cream ale on the label.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle.
It pours a light apple juice color with a foamy white head.
Smells like apple juice mixed with vanilla icing.
Cream ales just aren’t my thing I guess. It is like drinking vanilla/malt/apple flavored soda.
Non beer drinkers will like it

Straw yellow-orange with a white fizzy head. Aroma of grain, and apple. Lots of apple flavor-sweet, tart with just a hint of grain. Decent carbonation-like a champagne. Didn’t know what to expect, but rather liked this one.

A: The beer is super carbonated and the pour results in a massive white head that takes quite some time to settle down. Eventually one can see a clear orange-straw colored beer.
S: There’s definitely a big cider note to the nose which provides a nice apple sweetness to it. There’s some light malt notes and a slight tartness as well. It’s pretty simple, but not bad.
T: Sweet apples and grain/malt up front. There’s a lot of cider notes to it and really not all that much of the cream ale. There’s a touch of spice, it seems, and a general fruitiness to it.
M: The body is light to medium with a high level of carbonation.
D: This and the New Glarus Apple Ale were/are pretty interesting. I liked it, but at some points I was thinking, I would rather just have a cider.
