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.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2013 Bottle from StFun -- many thanks! I’ve been dying to try this for a while. It means a lot to me. To snifter it pours a clear, darkish orange with a quickly-diminishing off-white head. Tastes and smell of apple cores, refined sugar, Belgian and American yeasts, cranberry sauce, and sweet malts. Refreshingly tart. Thought it’d be stickier altogether: shows how much I know.

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

markducommun (865) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
Red-orange-gold, clear, almost no head. Very appley, sweet nose. Crisp slight bitterness, predominantly sweet. Tailing bit of sourness. Effervescent, quite carbonated, a little acidic. Finishes a little drier than it starts. Quite light body. Not terribly complex, pretty mild, but enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Decent beer, much less sweet than the crappy cider we get around here but still over sweet for my taste. Quite well done though, the flavor is authentic and the aroma is quite nice.

New Glarus Apple Ale has a thin, white head, a semi-clear, amber appearance, no bubbles and almost no lacing left behind. The aroma is of strong, sweet & sour apple aroma, caramel, and candied malt. Taste is of those elements with citrus and cream cheese. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and New Glarus Apple Ale finishes tart and drinkable. RJT

IndianaRed (3693) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 12, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2004 Bottle Pours a rather dark amber with very little off-white head that dissipated quickly to a thin white ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma is a nice woody cider note. Flavor is much sweeter than I expected or even hoped. At first, seemed more like apple juice than beer. Like a Jolly Rancher but not as sour or tart which I would have appreciated. As far a s fruit ber, it dow\es not hold a candle to the Red or Tart that NG offers. Tasty and sweet. My wife loves it. I guess that says it. ABV is maybe .5% ? As I continue to sip this, it starts to take on a cough drop mediciny hint. Thanks to MrFacto again for another NG offering.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Dusty copper. Nose very apple-esque (big surprise and all), sweet and malty. Flavor tastes like unflitered apple cider, very little beery quality at all. Reminded me of the wassaiil mom used to make around Christmas every year.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 27, 2005
a murky brown color w/ a thin white head and lots of carb bubbles on the glass head dissapates quickly. scent of spiced apple pie and sweet kiddie apple juice, a very sweet aroma. THe palate is clean medium bodied, but nothing amazinly special. Flavor was a sweet apple and cinnamon taste.. but not over the top sweet as I expected. Overall a good fruity beer.

Apple aroma and cidery in the flavour. Not a cider yet very appely for a beer. New Glarus never ceases to amaze me.
