Bottle. At first it smells like the canned Budweiser my grandpa drank. After a bit it smells more like what it is, a cream ale with cider thrown in. I’ll call this an apple shandy made with nicely tart apple juice. However the juice tastes like the stuff from concentrate not fresh cider.

Aroma was distinct tart apple cider,with little hints of the pale malt probaly used,tried to but couldn’t pick up any of the off tones detected by others. Taste was a rather smooth blend of boxed childrens juice and grainey malt. Came on more like a wine cooler, the women liked it more then the men

Cloudy amber. Nose is caramel covered tart apple and sherry. Flavor is bitter, tart apple with wet malt. Bitter apple skin finish. Just not good.

Bottle. Aroma of spiced apples, grain and like JK and Skyview, it smelled like hair product. Pours an attractive copper/amber. Flavor is mostly grainy with a hint of tart Granny Smith apple on the finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Bottle pours gold with a white head. Aroma is sweet and tart with notes of apple cider, earth, and the slightest hint of vanilla. Flavor shows the same with a light toffee/bread malt underneath. Overall body is light and soft with a slightly tart finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured into a tulip glass a clear golden color with a white collared head. It honestly looks like apple juice. Sweet apple cider aroma in the nose with little else, maybe some slight spice. Sweet apple flavor upfront wtih some tartness, some cherry flavors as well. This beer is pretty sweet but it’s decent for a fruit beer. Having had New Glarus Unplugged Apple Ale today, I would say this is an ok substitute but not as good as teh NG. Medium/light mouthfeel.

Thanks to Ricky Bobby’s owner for the taste. Somehow, I remember your dog’s name, but not yours. Pours a light grain color. Aroma is strong grain and sweet apple concentrate. Flavor is more of the same. Strong grain and euro hops with a concentrated apple juice flavor added. Fun beer to try. Thanks!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden color with thin off white head. Aroma is of light floral hops, apple and roasted grains. Taste is much the same with the apple becoming a bit upfront, but never over the top. Finishes pretty easy.

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