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.

Probiere is right, New Glarus has hidden the alcohiol well in this one. but trust me after drinking three real fast like in 20 minutes I was a little tipsy of course I have spent the day testing New Garuses wares.

12 ounce bottle. I don’t know how he does it, but Dan Carey is an absolute genious when it comes to fruit beers! Pours a golden caramel color with a medium white head. Aromas of apple (of coarse!) and slight malt. Crisp, almost tart apple flavor with just a hint of cinnamon and caramel. I could drink ALOT of this on a hot summer day! Excellent.

Pours a clear amber brown with bubbly tan head that settles pretty quickly into a medium tan collar. Aroma is of warm apple cider: brown sugar, cinnamon, some faint clove. Taste is wonderfully the same; apple, sweet caramel and some spice. Fairly carbonated and medium body. Another amazing beer from New Glarus!

This beer is simplicity itself, but that can be a beautiful thing. Deep gold in colour this beer has an incredible aroma and taste of fresh apples. Not overly sweet, it almosts tastes like a cider, but I found it delicous.

Pours light copper with little head. Smells like apple cider. Very fruity aroma. Interesting flavor. Lots of apple flavor. Very tart. At the same time, lots of malt flavor. If you can imagine a nice amber beer with tart apples, blended oddly very nice, because it sounds horrible, but is actually great, this would be it. This is definitely not a cider. This is a must try if you want something different.

tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy brownish orange, with a small fizzy white head. Lots of really nice red apple notes on the nose, slight bit of brown sugar and caramel, and very subtle piney hops and toasted malt. Tastes a lot like apple juice, though not really a bad thing, toasty malt and caramel, lots and lots of apple, and not overly sweet. Not a whole lot different than cider, but just with a nice caramely malt character to go with it.

A nice aroma gives this beer a very solid start, but it goes down hill from there... Color is a beautiful copper shade but I had absolutely no luck getting head from this beer...... the flavor is very apply and sweet. Right away it is kind of pleasent, but it quickly grates on my palate almost to the point of sickening. Another syrupy fruity overrated (in my opinion) beer from New Glarus...

Clear gold, just like apple cider. Nice apple aroma. Nice sweet apple flavor. Medium body. Not bad

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear, light brown color. Slight off-white head, dissipates quickly. Aroma is mainly sweet apple, with a hint of malt as well. Flavor is very cidery, sweet apples again, with a malt finish. Hints of cinnamon at the end as well. Palate feels effervescent, very lively on the tongue, and a bit syrupy. Overall this is an excellent fruit beer, a great brew for my 100th also!

thejoeshow (232) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 16, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear golden/yellow color with a small had that could use some more retention and lacing is ok. Aroma is well.....apples. Big green apple nose with a slight hint of spice. Flavor is sweet apple up front with a touch of almost caramel and cinnamon at the end. Its almost like caramel dipped apples. The thing I like the best about it is that it very different from a cider. Its a nice mix of apples and beer. Another winner for New Glarus and fruit beers!
