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.

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 :)

Oakes (12398) - 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.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of Bman1113vr) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of apple with a hint of cinnamon. Tastes like a sweet apple cider.

Holy cow, this one is amazing. Bottle at Meridian Pint, courtesy of Whitney, thank you ma’am! The aroma was like having a dozen warm apple turnovers shoved up your nose at the same time - but in a god way. The taste is equally shocking, not too sweet, not too sour. Tons of fruits plus all the stuff that goes in those apple turnovers, like raisins, very very light and subtle cinnamon, and that gooey stuff that ends up in between all the little chunks of apple. I’ll say it again. Amazing.

brokensail (10795) - Orange County, 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.
