COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
My goal in building the recipe for Fallen Apple was to create a seasonal specialty that was in and of itself a celebration. I start with fresh-pressed cider from early harvest apples we get from Kickapoo Orchards in Gays Mills. Fermentation leaves the cider tart and champagne-like. I then brew a cream ale designed to put some sweetness and body back into the beer, which rounds out the sour apple notes. This combination of ethereal apple flavor grounded in an “everyman’s” beer makes for a festive and potent brew.

On tap, Muddy Pig. Pours a reddish-golden color, very minimal carbonation, no head to speak of. Flavor is light dry apple, somewhat ciderish, more akin to a chardonnay. Dry mild lingering tart apple finish. Light bodied, fizzy on the palate. Overall relatively decent, something different than the norm. I could see someone who doesn’t like beer enjoying this.

Pours a cloudy copper brown with white head. Aroma is tart citrus/green apple. Flavor is similar to a chardonnay. Fruity, tart apple, citrus. Body is light with medium carbonation.

Smells like apple juice. Slightly sour apple taste, granny smith perhaps? Smooth, not overally sweet, quite drinkable for a apple beer. Good stuff.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Aroma: Apples with a lager-like grassy edge. Appearance: Pale amber-orange with abundant white head. Nice lace and effervescence. Flavors: Golden apples, tartness is there but rounded by worty malts, vanilla. Yummy, although the tart and the grassy hops aren’t well harmonized. Palate: Decidedly dry, just barely puckering. A creamy smoothness in the finish.

A pleasent, unique apple brew that pours a straw yellow body accompanied by a small white head. Carries plenty of fresh fruit aromas and flavors. Suprisingly silky texture with a nice crisp soft hop finish.

Not as bad as I had heard it was going to be. Pour was medium golden with a small off-white head. Aroma decorated with bitter apples, light cinnamon, maybe some nutmeg, and floral characters. The flavor was well blended and mellow. Again bitter apples accompanied the cream ale itself which seemed to work well together. There seemed to be a bit too much carbonation but overall it wasn’t so bad. Could use some more spice overall for my own liking. Maybe worth a purchase but not a second.

Thin white head of medium sized bubbles. Good carbonation. Dusty apple cider aroma with some dry wheat and vanilla. Some spices as the brew warms. Amber in color. Tart apples, more vanilla and spices in the flavor. Some gritty and grainy notes. Finishes a little bit dry and tart. I like these apple ales.

Thanks Dave. The beer pours to a bright orange amber body that’s 100% filtered with a white head. The aroma is cheap crappy macro lager with a dash of apple cider. The flavor is actually decent with a dry apple cider but no residual sugars as it finishes really clean and drinks like water. Tart apple cider meets toasty pale malts. Average tart cidery palate. Simplistic but would be refreshing on a really hot day.

Apple cider with thin white head. Aroma of apples, cinnamon and sweet malts. Taste of apples. Tart and creamy with a dry astringent finish. Reminds me of biting into an apple (shocker). Smooth but watery.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2008
12oz bottle acquired in trade with CaptainCougar (thanks!). Poured a lightly hazy and orange color wtih an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of apples, grainy, and a little musty. Tastes of pretty much the same. The apples where there, but not really in a good way. Thin body on the highly carbonated side.
