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.

Medium sized off white head. Light carbonation. Fruity aroma with apples (duh), nutmeg, actually caramel covered apples and some honey. Aroma is wonderful as the brew warms and the head disippates. Color is a dark caramel orange. Sweet and fruity. Thick palate with loads of apple cider. This is delicious! An alcoholic apple cider that has so much more flavor than your typical crappy apple cider. Sweet with a hint of spices. Finish is creamy and coating with a lingering sweet finish. Finally ends with a hint of tartness. Damn good stuff!

malachi (62) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 14, 2006
Thick, hazy light copper/orange pour. High carbonation. Sweet to sour apple aroma as the body warms. Very, very sweet and thin body. Much juicier than beer with a honey-like body. No significant finish, but a nice, thin coating is left on the throat.

Brigadier (2880) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2006
12 oz bottle compliments of hezron

Shared with malaci. A golden carbonated head protected scents of cherries, apples and very very subtle hops. Tastes like sweet apple juice that has been fermented with cherries. Very drinkable and smooth - it doesn’t really taste like beer at all. Finishes dry and smooth with a mild aftertaste. Not bad; I wish I could have had this fresh.

Wonderful apple aroma. Mouthfeel and taste is more reminicent of fresh apple cider, not beer. The brown ale base used for this beer must be very very mild. None the less a refreshing and tasty brew.

Apple, cinamon, nutmeg in the aroma. Flavor is sweet, with apples, honey, and vanilla.

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.

I...ehh....well,.....emmmm. Yeah. My notes for this are very clear and very succinct. "Apple juice." If this truly has a beer base then kudos to New Glarus. Much as I like them, this tasted like fruit juice and not beer to me.

12 ounce bottle from BBB63. It pour with a violent fizzy head the completely disapated. Pretty clear copper. It looks like cider. Aroma is all apples. I guess that mean is smells like cider. Very crisp. Sweet. Appley. Cidery. If it looks like cider, smells like cider, and tastes like cider, it must be cider. This looks, smells, and tastes great, FOR A CIDER!!!

Been waiting a very long time to try this one. My next door neighbor brought me some back from Wisconsin. Dark Apple Cider looking beverage. Tons of apple and sweet caramel flavoring. You can actually taste the raw apple flavor in this beer!!! Fantastic freaking beer. There’s nothing wrong with an excellent Fruit Beer, this is the best I’ve had. Another can’t miss product from New Glarus. Those who don’t enjoy this style are really missing out. Nice sweet apple finish. Is exactly what it says it is.
