3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a nice-looking clear amber-orange. A white head forms on pour, a few bubble-layers thick. It quickly dissipates but a constant stream of bubbles continually feeds a persistent wisp of bubbles on top. Aroma is pleasant enough, but mosty one-dimensional of apple cider. Flavor is also reminiscent of apple cider mixed with ale -- this is basically a Snakebite in a bottle, only not quite as good. Medium palate, almost a bit thick, with a slightly sticky feel. An apple beer is tough to pull off well, and Furthermore doesn’t do it here. In fact, only New Glarus has made one that I actually liked rather than tolerated. If someone offered me a bottle of this at a party, I’d drink it; otherwise, I probably won’t be having another one of these again.

Pours a nice copper color with a small light head. Faint grainy apple aroma. Flavor matches the aroma with a little apple aftertaste.Nothing offensive...but nothing that stands out.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours golden in color with a nice foamy dirty white head. Slightly malty aroma with a bit of apple. Not too much apple in the taste either.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma is sweet, ripe apples. Taste is really sticky sweet... not as much as a cider, but still a bit too much. This is mainly apple with a very mild bread undertone. Palate is dry and sweet, a bit too sticky for my taste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Clear amber color. Not much head. Light apple aroma. Tastes like an apple infused, cream ale. Loads of Apple with a backbone of pale malt. Lightish body. Sweet, tart, apple. An interesting apple beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
