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.

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.

Benzai (8224) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2012
355ml bottle @ ZZT III, courtesy of Martinus. Clear orange-golden color, small white head that disappears quickly. Smells fruity, a lot of apple indeed. Taste apple, sweetness, cinnamon and some hints of wood. Lightly sticky texture, low body, low carbo.

Dogbrick (8133) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Bottle from Festival Foods in La Crosse. The beer pours a clear pale amber color with a medium somewhat fizzy off-white head that burns away quickly. Stringy lacing. Apple juice aroma. Medium, dry body with and apple flavor that is more apple juice than apple cider. There is a touch of sweet malt as well. The finish is effervescent and fruity with a very short apple aftertaste. Decent overall.

3fourths (8023) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2004
Light and sweet apple and bread nose, more juice-like than cider-like, thin perhaps. Buttery notes with some slight spicyness. Light body, semi-fizzy with a sweet and wet finish.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Thanks to BBB63 for this. Pours deep copper with a big old white head. Aroma of malt, apple, brown sugar, caramel. Tastes malty, with big complex apples and brown sugar and a finishing carbonation with more apples and toffee. Nice density on the palate. Like a hard cider on steroids. Definite malt and hop presence all the way down, which differentiates this from 90% of all hard ciders. As with all NG beers, great balance and complexity. Well done. If Jeff Dahmer and John Wayne Gacy werenít alumni of the state, Iíd seriously consider moving to Wisconsin.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Bottle thanks to Daknole (I think). Pours with a frothy, lightly off-white head over a golden body. Head leaves great lace. Aroma is spiced with slight tangy, apple pie filling with some citrus zest, simple syrup and buttered crust. This beer smells to apple pie, what Pumpking smells to pumpkin pie. Taste is sweet apples and caramelized, long duration with a sweet doughy finish. Sugary. Medium to high carbonation. Finishes dry.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2005
Bottle courtesy of JPDIPSO. Dark amber ale with a small white head. Sweet apples in the aroma smell of dark cider and a pie. Flavour is sweet with reminders of mulled cider and lingering apples. I was quite pleased with myself, having correctly identified the Macintosh, but then I also thought I detected some red delicous of which there is no mention on the bottle. Smooth medium palate. (3+) Very nice, this would be well suited to a fall picnic or Thanksgiving. Many thanks!

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2009 Heart-warming and tongue-moistening sweet and tart apple pie perfume and flavors...Less decadent than its Belgian Red and Raspberry Tart counterparts though, the apples fade into a smooth aftertaste, avoiding a cloying stickiness...Soft prickling helps the dessert functions but also makes it easier for us to see that this is not up to their 2 other fruit beersí standards...Nutmeg adds to the pie character, yet this is as juicy and drinkable as apple cider...Itís not saying much, but this is probably the best apple beer Iíve ever had...

Bottle. Apple cider aroma. Hazy golden with small head. LIghtly tart apple and malt flavor. Nice hybrid.

A cleaner, less rotten tasting version of the average cidre. A strong effort.
