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.

Sweet spiced apple aroma. Pours an effervescent amber colored cider-like liquid. Fizzy head disappears quickly after pouring. Taste is sweet with very little maltyness. Palate is wonderfully crisp and bubbly. Very light with little alcohol, thus, it is very drinkable. Perfect for the holidays as an adult alternative to normal cider. Wonít fill you up while eating a heavy meal. Nice fruit beer. New Glarus really canít be beat on fruit beers.

Clear coppery brown with a thin film of a head. To get an idea of the aroma just take a Red Delicious and take a big whiff. Thatís exactly what youíre getting from this beer. Flavor of fresh cider with a bit of tartness to keep the sweetness from overwhelming the brew. Crisp, dry, sweet finish that lingers for some time. I couldnít drink a lot of these but itís a nice change of pace.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Pours caramel in color, looks and smells like apple cider. There is little to no head at all on this, but a nice amount of carbonation. Taste is similar to a dry apple cider.

Pours a transparent read with a thin head. Aroma of cider, malt, caramel, and a slight pie spice. Flavor is of cider, malt, caramel, and spice. Excellent fresh crisp taste. A little sweet near the end but excellent none the less.

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.

Has a wonderful green apple and apple cider aroma. Taste is a mix of sweet and tart apples with a very light sour note. Medium but sharp soda like carbonation thatís a bit fizzy.

ekoerper (596) - Iowa, USA - MAR 22, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2012 Aroma: crisp apples, smells sweet like cider, a touch of cereal grains but predominantly strong apple aroma. Appearance: Brilliantly clear light amber, fizzy white head with slightly below average retention, some spotty lacing. Flavor: prominent apple flavor, slight sweetness, a touch of light grains. Not a lot of complexity, but very good. Palate: medium body, fairly high carbonation, nice crisp finish. Overall: an excellent, extremely drinkable fruit ale. Delicious.

Bottle, pours brown-hinted gold. Good, lively head that quickly dissipates to almost nothing. Nose is fresh apples, a bit of sour apple Jolly Rancher as well. Just apple apple apple. Taste follows suit: crisp, fresh apples, hints of cider. Straightforward, wonderful.

Bottle, shared with my brother. Wonderful mulled apple cider aroma. Reminds me of an autumn hayride. Clear copper color with virtually no head. This is beautiful. Reminds me of a nice cider, sweet to start, lending to some tartness and finishing mildly sweet. It is no wonder that this is rated so well.

Tastes like sparkling apple juice. Good balance of sweet and tart. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
