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.

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.

KieferUGA (461) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 9, 2009
12 oz. bottle, courtesy of Skyview. Pours a clear gold color. Thin, bubbly white head. Aroma of apples and cinnamon. Initial bit of apple sweetness with tons of sugar, but this gives way to a nice malty touch. Finish is surprisingly clean. Very interesting beer.

What another lovely beer from NG! Taste just like Wisconsin Apple Cider. I do wish it had more "beer" to it, whether that be in ABV or more malt I don’t know.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Sweet nose of fresh apples is faint and fleeting, but very unique. Nice frothy white head that ligerns as a thin ring. Sparse lacing. Light, slightly hazy copper or orange/brown. Taste is stewed apples throughout. Slight cinnamon late, even a bit of heat. Palate is sharp up front then smooths out, but leaves a bitter aftertaste, like apple cores (hope they removed the seeds!). Extra credit for adventure.

Goldorak (439) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2005
Rusty nail/copper colored with a weak head that fizzed off quickly. Banana, and appleseed aroma. Hefe yeast? I couldn’t find anything on the website about it, so who knows... Taste is like banana nut muffins with a side of apple sauce, a bit too sweet for me, I like my fruit Beers on the tangy side better. It did remind me of a defunct Québec Beer that I used to love, Hopps aux pommes from Brasal.

I could drink a gallon of this. I can understand both the high ratings and the low ones too. If you like apple juice you will like this brew. From the first pour it looks like apple juice, it smells like apple juice, and it tastes like apple juice. It is not the most complex beer in the world, but it is very drinkable and makes for a GREAT summer beer.

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.

kegbear (436) - Orange, California, USA - APR 2, 2009
Bottle. Very sweet one dimentional beer. Tastes like Mott’s apple juice with a bit of carbonation. Too sweet and not layered at all. A let down from the other superb NG beers I have had.

badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Poured a dark golden amber color with a nice white head that retained quite well. Smell is like smelling a crisp apple. Nice and tart, perhaps like smelling apple juice with slightly overripe apples; almost like stepping into an apple orchard. Taste is like biting into a mixture of different apples and moves into the taste of the apple skins, without the astringent tastes of actually biting apple skins. Light-medium carbonation, lighter side of medium bodied with a crisp, dry finish. Excellent drinkability, I’d be drinking plenty of this if it were still produced. This bottle was three years old and still held up remarkabley well, I can only imagine it was more powerful when it was fresh.

Jabic (431) - 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!
