As this is my first rating I feel it is important to take it seriously. I LOVE this beer, its deliciously appletastic. Smells like heaven if I believed it existed. Goes down smoooth. Shout out to my beloved friends Reynolds314, Ernesto 987, and Drunkdietitian for providing me with delectable beers such as this.

Poured a copper hue into a pint glass. Smelled of apples with a hint of other fruit beers from New Glarus. Tasted of apples with a bit of bitterness coming from the beer side. Another winner from New Glarus.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 7/21/2015. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big balanced sweet/tart apples, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light cinnamon/spice, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, apples, and light earthy hop/spice notes; with great strength. Taste of big balanced sweet/tart apples, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light cinnamon/spice, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate fruit tartness and light herbal/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of sweet/tart apple, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light cinnamon/spice, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt, apples, and light earthy hop/spice notes; with a great malt/tart/spiciness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from the apple acidity as well. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/acidic, and slightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4%. Overall this is a fantastic fruit beer. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt, apples, and light earthy hop/spice flavors; and very smooth and refreshing to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

12 oz bottle Straight outta ’consin. New Glarus Thumbprint Series Apple Ale is a apple juice (right?) slightly hazy brew with a fine head of white bubbles. Nose is ripe real apple aroma without fake sugar. Taste is pretty much apple. like natural sweet apple, not fake candy apple. Like a gala or Fuji. Body is thinner and a bit lively. What that beverage with the annoying apple beaning people commercials should be.

Where: Neighbor brought back a variety from a trip home to Wisconsin, forever grateful. How: 12 oz bottle, shared at a neighborhood tasting. Appearance: Pours a golden amber transparent beer with a finger head. Aroma: Apple and more apples. Taste: Pretty much all apples, kind of like apple juice. Palate: Lighter side of medium-bodied. Overall: Not as highly rated as some of their others, but a pretty good NG beer.

12 oz. bottle from Discount Liquor, Milwaukee, WI. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of...apples (what did you expect). Taste is distinctly apple but is perfect, not too tart or sweet, and offers enough carbonation that this is really different from a cider. I did not know what to expect from this but it is exceptional. Great beer!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from my Secret Santa, shared at Ale Alpharetta. Pours a clear orange, with a small, bubbly, tan head. The nose is strong red delicious and gala apples, light cinnamon, white sugar, and some light caramel. Very fruity and sweet, with a light acidic tartness. Medium body, crisp, acidic, and clean through the finish. This is a very forward apple beer, but very tasty. This is what a fruit beer ought to be!
