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.

Thanks Facto! This one rocked as well. Tasted a lot like cider, but with a hint of wheat. I like fruit beer so that was okay with me. it is very sweet but i like it sweet. full flavored apple with hint of cinnamon. I could get used to drinking this.

Thanks JCW: A very interesting pale orangish-brown color like that of apple juice (very sofisticated and unique) with an almost non-existent head. Aroma is that of mulled apple cider that has been carbonated. Flavor of a mildly spice-dusted caramel apple-wow. This was hard not to drink it one debaucherous gulp. Somewhat unidimensional, but unbelievable all the same. This is what I call a good date beer.

Thanks to Facto. Poured a light clear copper with a small fizzy white disappearing head. Big aroma of apples. Taste is all apple with a hint of cinnamon. Like a liquid apple pie. Surprisingly, a lot sweeter than I expected. Too sweet, actually, for me. Still very good.

Well, the label does not mislead -- tastes of fresh, red delicious apples. Refreshing, light, and not too sweet, this one-dimensional brew is great for the fall. Thanks MrFacto!

Bottle pours a slightly hazy apple juice (imagine that), with a sudsy white head that quickly falls, spotty lacing, with light carbonation.   Clean apple nose, much like fresh cider.   WOW!   I was expecting a pilsner like taste with very minor apple hints, but this is nothing like that at all.   I’d say this is more of a cider than a beer.   Very clean apple taste, soft, sweet but not cloying.   Long, lingering apple finish.   Enjoyable body and mouthfeel.   New Glarus certainly knows how to make fruit beers, and this is no exception.   Simply wonderful!   Thanks goes out to MrFacto for the trade!

Bottle, shared with my brother. Wonderful mulled apple cider aroma. Reminds me of an autumn hayride. Clear copper color with virtually no head. This is beautiful. Reminds me of a nice cider, sweet to start, lending to some tartness and finishing mildly sweet. It is no wonder that this is rated so well.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2015 Bottle. Aroma is a gently spiced cinnamon aroma with an apple aroma. Smells like macIntosh apples from my town’s MacIntosh orchard (Chazy Orchards). Sort of smells like warm cider. Very comforting aroma. Mostly transparent copperish color with a small whitish head. Start is sweet apples turning carbonated and quite tart. There is lingering sweet notes throughout. There is a mild caramel maltiness that comes through in the finish. This is a gem. (9/4/9/4/17) ~~~~~~RE-RATE~~~~~~~12oz bottle brought back from Wisconsin. The aroma on this smells like unpasteurized apple cider. Nicely aromatic. There’s a light caramel malt character retronasally. Fairly one-dimensional. Transparent orange colored body with a fizzy, smallish, rapidly dissipating light yellow head. Starts with a sweet, somewhat sugary flavor. Crisp apple flavor comes through in the middle. More sweetness. Some caramel sweet malts back this up. Pretty one-dimensional and quite drinkable. This is arguably more of a cider than a beer, but enjoyable nonetheless. Back when I first rated this beer 10.5 years ago, it was well before the cider boom we have had recently and it was just something totally different at the time.

Bottle - thanks to Badgerben. Pours rich clear orangey amber color with a small off-white head that diminished to a ring of bubbles around the rim. Unique and delicious aroma, smells like apple crisp dessert, sweet apples, honey and brown sugar. Tastes like a sweet and spicey hard cider, but mellow rather than sharp and biting. Light to medium body and pleasant carbonation. Quite a treat, thanks Ben!

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2005 a subtle and delicate aroma of fleshy apple arose from the clear amber liquid and grew stronger showing hints of cider and fresh cut red delicious...little head stood atop..sweet apples are everywhere in the aroma...but in delicate ways....very sweet with almost no aftertaste...a wonderful apple ale but not even close to being as complex as the red...fleshy apple and malt round things out...low alcohol makes it more novel than it should be...but a nice ale nonetheless.
