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.

(Bottle) Pours a dark, cloudy amber body with a thin, almonde coloured head. Nose of apple Slush Puppy. Very pitted, banana flavour with a sweet malt base. A tad syrup and artificial. Not my style but very good none the less. Many thankis to Muzzlehatch for sharing this at the 1st Annual Ciderwinder Tasting in Ottawa...

Pours hazy dark orange with a thin greyish head. Strong apple aroma with hay notes. Mostly sweet. Apples, apples and apples in the flavor with hints of cinnamon. Quite sweet and full. Good, but very different.

Looks like a sparkling apple cider with a small fizzy head. Smells of apple butter, yeast and cinnamon. Flavor is most prominently apples (that’s a given) and cinnamon. Smooth, sturdy ale, looks thinner than it feels on palate, with a body similar to a thick cider. Accentuated carbonation and a sweet tartness - paired with caramel malts - help to balance the beer. Like a sweet, freshly dipped caramel apple. Finish is crisp and sweet. Courtland apple tartness fades and gives way to Jonathan apple sweetness. This is one that makes me proud of Wisconsin’s farming tradition.

Ungstrup (29217) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 5, 2005
A brown beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of apples. The flavor is sweet with an OK presence of apples as well as slight notes of malt, and a dry end.

(Thanks to Garin Wright of the Buckeye Brewing Co. for sharing this at the Cleveland Local Gathering Feb 05) What a nice fruit beer! Great aroma of fresh apple juice. Has elements of both sweet and sour apple. Slick body, with the apple being upfront and a little bit of malt peeking through. Finishes on the tart side, making this very easy to drink. Would make a great summer/dessert beer.

OldGrowth (2645) - North Carolina, USA - APR 2, 2005
UPDATED: APR 18, 2011 Bottle, 12oz, from trade with Silphium. Good nose, apples, some cocoa and bubblegum. Hazy brownish orange color, small to no head. Sweet tart flavors, apples, like a cider or apple sauce, tart ,like those hard candies. Medium body, lite creamy mouthfeel, tart fruity finish. Nice brew, the brown ale cider mix is nice. Thanks Silphium. second bottle from trade with Ughsmash scores 6/3/6/3/12. didn’t like quite as much second time around,

Some apple in the nose but it is subtle, but as the label promises, it is fresh. Hazy amber. Looks like aple cider with a thin off-white head, mostly diminishing. Sweet, apple. This is good. The right amount of sweetness, beeriness, carbonation and sharpness. Very finely made. Some spicy tartness. The only thing I might say against this brew is that it is slightly too sweet. But, that really isn’t a bad thing. I would imagine this would go fantastically with apple crisp.

Pours a murky, dark amber-brown with a diminishing off-white head. Initial earthy yeast aromas. Strong aromas of apples come through and build as the head fades. Very brilliant apple flavors while staying complex. The malt and hops tame the apple, keeping it from tasting like pure apple juice. Malt has flavors of caramel and brown sugar, perfect compliments to the apple. Body is medium, creamy with a lively carbonation. I wish they would keep brewing this.

Cleveland locals 2-26-05. I think Garin from Buckeye Brewing donated this to us, thanks. Dark golden color, big smooth apple taste all the way through but not in a cider way, it’s still beer. Gets a little sweet but is mostly tart. Interesting.

Bottled: Orange colour. Clear. Apple, sweetness, stearin in the aroma. Flaovur is very sweet and cloying. Obvious apple flavour, thats a bit too much for my likings. Ends on a very sweet note. Thanks Jeppe for sharing.
