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.

12oz bottle. Poured a clear medium orange color. The head was soapy and off white. Some tattered lace was left behind on the glass at the end. Pretty simple aroma. Straight up apple cider. Light to medium bodied and sweet with delicate carbonation. Apple cider dominated the flavor, but I also tasted hints of pale malt and toffee in the background. Very easy drinker.

Bottle shared by JCB. Thanks Jason. Been wanting to try this forever. Nose is sweet candied apple, honey, fresh apple cider. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side from what I would have liked, but it still tastes very natural and is not cloying at all. Wish it was a bit more carbonated and dry. Good, but not the great beer I wanted it to be.

presario (4817) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 17, 2009
Bottle in trade with noncaloric. Dark golen amber. Rich sugar apple and musty/yeast aroma. Tastes like the scent. Very apple cider-like. Big apple flavour. Sweet in a brown sugar quality. Would be hard to pick out from apple cider in a side by side. A bit of an edge to the taste musty or yeasty.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Unplugged bottle from Winter í08 from Piggly Wiggly in North Kenosha. Pours amber colored/apple juice looking. Fizzy disappearing head, like a fizzy cider. Nose is fresh apple juice and some light beer notes of sweet malts. Pretty pleasant. Taste is sweet and definitely apple flavored. Beer is super effervescent. Aftertaste melds into a cider finish with malt taste. Definitely not dry, sweeter than Iíd expect. Interesting, though more like an alcopop than beer, really.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2010 Re-rate. 2010 bottle. Courtesy zimmerbloke. Dark gold color, good full white head, decent lacing. The aroma is sweet apple pie. Smells just like the apple pie we had today for Thanksgiving. The flavors are soft and a bit creamy and tart. Vanilla and soft caramel compliment the sweet apple. The palate is a little thin. Another good fruit beer from New Glarus but I much prefer the Belgian Red and Raspberry Tart to this one. Original Rating: Courtesy of pfoxyjohn. Pours a clear copper color with a thinish white head. Lively carbonation. Very soft on the palate with tart apples and just the right amount of sweet malt to prevent it from feeling like a cider. Very well-rounded, crisp, and refreshing. A tasty fruit beer, my wife loved it too, we ended up sharing this one. Thanks pfoxyjohn!

Clear coppery brown with a thin film of a head. To get an idea of the aroma just take a Red Delicious and take a big whiff. Thatís exactly what youíre getting from this beer. Flavor of fresh cider with a bit of tartness to keep the sweetness from overwhelming the brew. Crisp, dry, sweet finish that lingers for some time. I couldnít drink a lot of these but itís a nice change of pace.

Hank1980 (963) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Bottle poured clear gold, like apple juice. Aroma of tart apple, faint grain. Taste is very apple, very tart, with some light grain, though very faint. This is easier drinking than several apple juices. Very crisp and refreshing. I havenít had too many fruit beers, but this one seems to be three parts fruit, one part beer. Overall, very refreshing, tastey brew.

Wow thatís appley! Sweet red delicious apple, honeycrisp aroma too. Clear gold, average head. I really like the solid base which prevents the aggressively sweet fruit from spinning out of control. Ends up being more fruit than beer, stronger character than most ciders. Good blend of apples here.

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!!

12 oz. unplugged bottle - pours clear, light orange-amber with trace white head; sweet apples, wheat, pie crust, apple juice; drinks with a light texture and slight fruity zing; there is plenty of sweetness, but never falling into a sugary mess; pretty nice though reminding me too much of apple juice and not nearly as transcending as the raspberry tart, fruit and depth wise
