Bottle, thanx to tkrjukoff. Pours clear golden with a small, off-white head. Complex aroma of cinnamon, ginger and a hint of apple. Sweet taste of ginger and some apple. Fresh.

It pours a clear golden copper; effervescent, with a bubbly white head that quickly disappears. I’m not too sure what the difference is between an apple cider and an apple ale, but it tastes pretty similar, only a little lighter on the palette and the alcohol than the ciders I’ve tried.

Liquid candy from New Glarus. Aroma is very subtle and sweet with apple. Pours a dark, golden carbonated throughout with a thin, fizzy white head. Taste is like carbonated apple juice, very sweet, and fizzy. Very light body with a nice sweet finish. Very easy to drink. This one gulps down fast and the taste is delicious. Good job NG

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours light copper with little head. Smells like apple cider. Very fruity aroma. Interesting flavor. Lots of apple flavor. Very tart. At the same time, lots of malt flavor. If you can imagine a nice amber beer with tart apples, blended oddly very nice, because it sounds horrible, but is actually great, this would be it. This is definitely not a cider. This is a must try if you want something different.

New Glarus really knows fruit beers...copper pour, little to no head...nose is full of sweet apples skin...flavor is delicate, sweet, and refreshing

A very nice apple ale. This reminds me of a somewhat dry apple cider. It’s very crisp and bright in its flavors.

Like an apple explosion! Very cloudy on first pour but clarified after a few minutes. A very sweet aroma with a medium body and s slightly sweet aftertaste. I drank this on about 4 years ago on Thanksgiving.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma: smells like apple juice and autumn leaves, I kid you not, amazing; Appearance: clear caramel, reddish hue on the edges, hold it up to the light to emphasize the red; Taste: absolutely wonderful, and I’m not usually one for fruit beers, I think the best thing about it is this: a lot of other ’apple’ ciders I’ve had add a boatload of cinnamon and currant to the overal flavor, whereas, with this brew, there’s none of that, instead, there’s just a fresh, unadulterated apple flavor that borders every so slightly on tart, its really, really refreshing, and I would actually recommend drinking it chilled; Palate: slight tart, slight sweet, both linger, extremely easy to down one quickly, just the right amount of carbonation, a lot less bubbly than other beers, but this is right for the overall cider experience; Overall: its incredibly easy to down one of these in no time flat even if you meant to savor every swallow, I wish I could get these year round because I’d always have them on stock, highly recommended
