Nice orange color, but absolutely no head. Smells like most ciders, but a little maltier. Thicker than I would’ve expected. Sweet, and slightly spicy. Enjoyable.

Courtesy of TheCheeseMan. Wow, apples. This pours like apple juice, golden, slightly fizzy, head is nowhere. Aroma of apple juice, some apple skins, a little spice. Taste is apple cider all the way with some cinnamon, caramel and spiciness. Sweet, a little tart in the mouthfeel, low carb with some prickly bubbles, a little dryness. Excellent. Hard to believe there is malt in there, very like cider.

Thanks JCW: A very interesting pale orangish-brown color like that of apple juice (very sofisticated and unique) with an almost non-existent head. Aroma is that of mulled apple cider that has been carbonated. Flavor of a mildly spice-dusted caramel apple-wow. This was hard not to drink it one debaucherous gulp. Somewhat unidimensional, but unbelievable all the same. This is what I call a good date beer.

Clear dark golden with a filmy head, high visible carbonation and no lacing. Aroma of apples, cider, spices and some pale malts. Flavor is apples, cider, cinnamon and pale malts. Light body and mild-moderate carbonation. So tasty!

Deep Orange, with a tint of rose. Aroma is Apple jolly rancher all day, sweet hard candy. Taste quite dry throughout, with a green apple tang and just a little stickiness in the finish. Not too bad, straightforward all in all. Serendipity is the gold standard for fruit beers from NG...

Deliciously crisp beer. Pour caramel with amber highlights. Aroma is pure apple, delicately balanced with sweet brown sugar and toffee notes to cut the acidity, lending a certain degree of roundness to the nose after a sharp beginning. Flavor finds a similar balance between the tangy tartness of apple and drinkability of a session beer, with tart apple at the forefront, seemlessly giving way to a smooth and sweet brown ale.

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.

Bottle (thanks much noncaloric). Pours a clear lightish copper with a small white head. Aroma is, yes, you guessed it, apple. Lots and lots of apple. Some slight floral notes as well. Flavor is apple...more specifically apple cider. Sweet but with a dose of tartness. Just like a good apple should be. Quite a tasty treat. The wife REALLY liked this one, but found it hard to believe it is actually beer.

Transparent copper color with a thin foamy head. Basicly a malty cider with high carbonation and a bit of a yeast flavor in the finish.

Bottle pours a gold white head smells and tastes very strong apple. Pretty much tasted like apple juice and that’s bout it. Very nice smell and taste though fresh.
