Halfway between a cider and a beer, this doesn’t do either much justice. There is a slight spritz with the iny bubbles, but not much else worth noting.

Smells like alcohol, apples, and ozone, in that order. Tastes like apples, ozone, and alcohol, in that order. Also some light malts giving it toast and porridge notes and balance out the apple sweetness. Body is maybe too thin, and carbonation too much.

Sort of tastes like a mediocre cider with a bit of beer added to it. Very carbonated mouthfeel that while it doesn’t ruin the beer makes the front end not too enjoyable. The apple flavor is very predominant moreso than the cream ale. I wouldn’t go out of my way for this one..might as well get a nice cider instead.

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.

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.

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.

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.
