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.

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.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2009 Bottle courtesy of my wonderful boyfriend. Pours a sparkling clear amber colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of vinegar, apples, grains and light spice. Flavour of tart apples, corn, vinegar, yeast and maybe a hint of malt. Very tart and bitter.

Light color, no head. Crisp and clean tasting. Goes down smooth. Very sweet, almost like candy, somewhere between beer and hard cider. I liked it overall.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2012 Each sip is fizz, then apple, then a nice toasty warmth. Base seems pretty standard cream ale. Decent seasonal, essentially apple cider with a bready touch.

DoubleBubble (107) - Mescal Lakes (wherever that is), Arizona, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Light lacing. Aromas of Granny Smiths, and slight hops. Taste like cider/ Granny Smiths. A little tart and dry on the tounge.

MikeHernandez (50) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 24, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2006 Light grain aroma, no hop presence detected, light yeasty dough aroma. You can obviously taste the apples and the sweetness they bring. I liked the slight bitterness that compliments the sweet taste of the apples. It has a clear body that is light red in hue. The initial taste is moderately sweet with a slightly bitter finish of average duration. A very drinkable beer.

Just missed the mark for me. Smooth but odd taste on the palate. Didn't quite hit the apple flavor I was looking for either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
