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.

Lots of hype surrounding this one in these parts. Bottle, pour is somewhat effervescent, cloudy yellow/goldish, not much of a head. ARoma of apples, mostly like apple cider/juice. Taste is pretty much that too with a little wheat that comes in the finish. Medium to light bodied. Meh, not really my thing. Tastes mostly like apple cider.

12oz bottle from a trade with Atom: Clear orange copper color with a nice fluffy head. Aromas of tart apples and caramel, some breadyness, kind of reminds me of apple pie. I started to get the aroma as soon as I poured it. Taste of sweet caramel malts with a tart apple fruityness. The taste is very natural and not artificial. Dry finish. Great full mouth feel without being heavy I could drink a lot of the beer and still enjoy. I hope to get more someday.

The aroma was rich with apples and hints of caramel and brown sugar. The beer poured a hazy rich copper color with little to no head and lacing. There may have been a carbonation problem with mine. The flavor was syrupy like straight apple juice and little malt. The mouthfeel was slightly wet and creamy with a light to medium body. I enjoyed it. Thanks to Vac for scoring this one for me.

Bottle, pours a bubbly, clear gold body with white head. Aroma of fresh picked apples and apple juice/cider. Flavor is similar, although almost candy-like, reminiscent of Jolly Rancher sour apple candy. Slightly tart near the finish. A little sticky and syrupy on the palate. This is okay, but nothing remarkable.

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

Pours clear, pale copper with a beautiful medium head composed of super-fine bubbles. Once the head recedes it leaves moderate lacing. Strong carbonation helps bring a simply sublime sweet and tart apple aroma to your nose, like fresh cider, along with hints of spice and bread. On the palate it’s like apple pie - Lush, rich, sweet, slightly tart, and appley with the underlying brown ale acting like a pie crust. Truly fantastic stuff, but at 3.8% alcohol this one should come in 2 liter bottle for easier consumption!

Jabic (408) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Ar: Lots of tart apples, hay, a bit of funk. Ap: Clear golden-amber - medium off-white head with good retention, nice ring of lacing. T: Very tart apple, but sweetness mellows the tartness - apple juice and some light caramel - a little bit of vanilla - low bitterness with a long apple-y finish. P: Medium-light body - creamy and lush - finish is medium-dry. O: This apples embodied - malt, caramel, and vanilla give it some distinctiveness from a cider - delicious and fun!

This was like a great apple pie in a beer bottle. Sweet and appley. I can dig it.

Bottle. Pours a slightly amber/cider color, head dissapeared almost immediately. Aroma is a subdued tart apple, sweet. I was a little worried that this was going to be a watered down version of a fruit beer. First sip changed that. This beer is like apple cider without the extreme tartness usually associated with cider. I couldn’t believe how great the apple flavor came across with a touch of malt and cinnamon in the background. Finishes dry, surprising seeing how the beer is more sweet than tart.

Went on a mad beer spending spree up in Madison and bought many New Glarus products. Pours a dark orange color with off white head. Smells of a cider beer and flavor is apple cider. Not a big fan of ciders but this is pretty decent.
