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.

Tasting at Papsř
Deep blond color. Sweet aroma, it reminds me the perry artificial drinks from Carlsberg, in Sweden. Sweetish apple juice, with a deviation in an unpleasant direction. Mix of beer and cider? No good.

Bottle, thanks to tkrjukoff. Pale orange color, small white head. Apple aroma, syrupy, kinda sweet. Apple flavor, syrup, ginger and cinnamon notes, a little vinous.

Theydon_Bois (16423) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle split on the hotel patio, SD, big thanks to GT2 for gifting me this number 14/11/14. Rich amber/chestnut brown with a light beige covering. Nose is big on apple pulp, straw, light caramel, woody must, more apple juice. Taste comprises sweet apple juice, light pear and prune backnotes, caramelised brown sugar, sweet licks. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet licks in the close. Ok for style but a little too sweet for me overall - full on apple orchard attack!

Clear amber color, small white head. Strong green apple juice aroma. Medium-bodied. Apple juice, light tartness, not overly sweet (no sugar added?). Nice cider/apple juice, nothing to do with beer :)

brokensail (15600) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 9, 2010
A: The pour is a clear amber color with minimal head formation that eventually turns into a thin layer of off-white foam. S: Apple pie all the way on the nose. Sweet apples, notes of cinnamon, that sort of sugary pie filling glaze, and even some pie crust. A hint of cider, too. T: The flavor isn’t quite as nice as the nose, unfortunately. Sweet apples, a light butter flavor, bread/pie crust (especially on the finish), and more cider flavors. M: The body is medium with a sort of soft carbonation. D: Sort of like a more complex sparkling cider (non-alcoholic), plenty of sweetness and apple flavor. I’d like to try this one fresher, but still good as it is.

Oakes (15292) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2001
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2009 Light amber with some rather large bubbles for a craft beer. It smells overwhelmingly appley, in a candyish way, and without nuance. Sweet, appley, candyish, again without nuance. The malt lends body, and a sweetness in the finish that keeps it from being too much like a cider. But this is far too simple a beer for my tastes.

Bottle at RBJG#2 - Grand Tasting Tim’s Place. Clear yellow - white head. Apple, sweetness, acid, bubblegum, candy, banana, citrus, warming alcohol, too sweet.

jtclockwork (14592) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 29, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2011 Bottle thanks to arminjewell. Pours apple juice color. Nose of freshly picked apples, cinnamon, brown sugar and caramel. Taste of fresh apple, cinnamon, brown sugar and light caramel malts. Light hop presence also. Very delicious beer. Solid and extremely sessionable.

mcberko (13283) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2012
12 oz. bottle, sent from FullObs (thanks Brett), pours a hazy copper / bronze with a small white head. Aroma of green apples that pretty much dominate, with a bit of candied sugar sweetness. Flavour reminds me more of an apple cider, with fresh green apples and a bit of sweetness - well-balanced. No hint of the wheat or brown ale qualities. Solid flavour profile for being < 4%, but the whole thing feels a bit whimsical, especially compared to Raspberry Tart and Wisconsin Red. Nevertheless, solid refreshing light fruit beer.

(12oz bottle, thanks OSLO) Crystal clear apple juice body topped by small white head. Aroma is medium sweet, crisp apple, light tartness. Taste is medium sweet, apple. Light-medium body, some fizziness.
