COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Apple Ale sings with the fresh crisp taste of Wisconsin Apples. Our brewmaster begins with a brown ale base employing Wisconsin farmed wheat and a blend of Cortland, MacIntosh and Jonathan apples. Our apple growing friends squeeze them especially for this brew. Expect this ale to pour a beautiful copper color. The fresh bouquet of Apple will rise to meet you even before the glass touches your lips.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2009 [Bottle, thanks JK!] Pours amber with a very small off-white head. Medium body, good finish. The aroma and flavor were intense apple with some cinnamon and nutmeg. While I didnít like this as much as the Belgian Red or Raspberry Tart, this is still yet another excellent New Glarus fruit beer. Re-rate: Didnít really get any spices with this new batch, just straight apple. Almost was like a sparkling cider it was so apple heavy. I really enjoyed drinking it, and it was insanely drinkable...but to be honest it is very one dimensional. Still, I could drink this all day, so I am going to up the overall a bit.

muddy orange, strong granny apple aroma, rich apple flavor, not at all like a cider, not sweet or bitter, like drinking a dry apple butter

Like an apple explosion! Very cloudy on first pour but clarified after a few minutes. A very sweet aroma with a medium body and s slightly sweet aftertaste. I drank this on about 4 years ago on Thanksgiving.

Pours a hazy copper-peach color, with light carbonation. you see a little red tinit if you hold it up to the light. There is no head, really, just a thin ring of foam. Minimal lacing. Nice candied apple aroma, sweet and spicy. As it warms, the aroma has more apple and less spice, smelling somehting like a fresh, unpasteurized cider. The taste is like apple pie in a glass. Seriously, it tastes like baked apples and pie spice. It is honey sweet up front with a bit of tart apple in the finish. Is it more like an ale or a cider? Iím not sure. Medium to full body, very light carbonation. This would be a wonderful dessert drink. I wonder how it would tasted warmed? I finally found a good apple beer - make that a great apple beer.

Bottle from RooftopRogue, thanks Rob. Iíve been wanting to get my hands on a bottle of this for a while and it was worth the wait. Smells like apple cider, tastes like apple cider but with just enough malt to distinguish itself as a beer. Crisp, sweet finish. Another excellent fruit beer from NG.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of rooftoprogue and shared with illini08. looks and smells like apple cider. not sure how long its been since this was bottled, but even with the age and Iím sure a more subdued flavor than when it was fresh, this was delicious. New Glarus knows fruit beer!

Bottle shared by sliffy courtesy of ofortuna. Aroma of maltiness and some apple sweetness with some cider and cinnamon notes. Very sweet apple tasting beer that had the slightest bitterness in it. Very crisp apple flavor. I wish they would make this again because this beer is awesome.

Bottle shared by sliffy, thanks! Pours orange/brown with a short, quick white head. Aroma of apples, cinnamon, and a bit of nutmeg. Flavor of apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, a bit of sweet malt. Fruity and sweet with a little spiciness and a sweet finish. Iím really suprised to how well this one held up, everything seemed in its right place. Makes me glad I got to try it and itís a shame they donít brew this anymore.

Thanks badgerben. Pours murky brown with small white head that doesnít last. This was an apple cider beer just a crazy ass concept pulled off the right way. Everything you get in an apple cider is there, the aroma is pretty weak compared to the flavor, and you get some oak flavor in there also from the fermenter I would think? The apples, the sugary sweetness, some cinnamon, the only thing to say is apple cider with alcohol, just awesome.

Big thanks to my secret santa for this one: Copper color with a tiny off white head. Aroma, apples, some cinnamon, and caramel. Flavor, apples and more apples, some brown sugar and spices to it. Had an applesauce aftertaste to it, but was really nice. Really glad I got to try this one.
