this brew was amazing. My gf and I split a bottle and poured into flute style champage glasses. Smells like an apple orchard on a crisp fall day. Light amber color, low carbonation, no head. tastes like light apple, semi sweet, semi dry, no hops detected. Little malt. Reminds me more of a lambic or cider. This is a great after dinner drink or great on its own on a saturday afternoon. Little alcohol detected. A

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2012 Nice apple nose. Light and crisp. Almost like an apple soda, but not as sweet. Moderately tart.

Well, the label does not mislead -- tastes of fresh, red delicious apples. Refreshing, light, and not too sweet, this one-dimensional brew is great for the fall. Thanks MrFacto!

Nice golden body with a small white head. Light carbonation. Aroma is pure, sweet apple juice. Taste is not very complex either with delicious apple flavors and a slight tart finish. The nice rich mouthfeel and full body are the best attribute... New Glarus seems to accomplish this in fruit beers like no other brewer Iíve tried.

12 oz bottle courtesy of adrian910ss. Pours a copper colour with a foamy quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of motts apple juice and not much else. Tastes like carbonated apple juice. Disappointing!!

Very crisp medium malt and hops. Nice flavor. But it really doesnít taste like beer. It tastes like Apple Cider. Worth drinking as a novelty once in a while

Pours thick with no head. Deep apple color. Looks, smells and tastes alot like apple cider without the bitter bite. Sweet, with a drying slightly tart finish. Excellent fruit beer. This bottle was on discount at a local beer shop. The date was 12/98. I was nervous about it, but it held up VERY well!

Pours apple juice colored. Head quickly fades to nothing. Kind of like a light, sweet cider. Nose is sweet with apples, continues to palate. Kind of wish it was carbed a bit more, but fun to drink nonetheless.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Iíve had many bottles of this in the past and I donít know why I havenít gotten around to rating yet. Pours light golden with bright white head. Aroma is all apples and likely would be confused with apple juice if I didnít know otherwise. Flavor loaded with sweet apple deliciousness and tart finish. On par with prior fruit beers from NG. Glad they decided to make it again.

Pours a very clear light brown with a reddish huge. Barely any foam whatsoever.
Smells like a red apple.
Taste kind of like beer mixed with apple juice. Iím assuming this is spot on what they intended since Iíve never had anything remotely like this before. A little tartness throughout with a very smooth flavor.
Mouthfeel is kind of light, but with a 4.0% ABV that is expected. Not quite as dry as most ciders. Definitely has the apple flavor but is firmly in beer territory.
I love everything from New Glarus. Iím fortunate to have loving relatives in Wisconsin, but would love to have more regular access to their offerings. Very solid lighter beer and very unique.
