Pours a watered-down gold color, with no head and a few spots of lacing. Aroma is dry, with slight apple peel, and basement. Taste is apple peel, with a weird nutty malt note. Has some refreshing carbonation, and is pretty refreshing. But nothing special. It is no cream ale, though.

Bottle pours clear amber with very little head or lace. The aroma is of dry white wine. The flavor is a strange blend of a sour apple fruit ale, with a disjoint lingering malt note that does not flow together well. The palate is rather sritzy and somewhat refreshing. Overall, this one is not great.

Bottle. Clear, dark golden pour with almost no head. Slight aroma of apple with some alcohol and grain. Flavor is much nicer. More apple, spice and some tartness that comes through more as the beer warms.

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.

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

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
