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.

Poured a dark golden amber color with a nice white head that retained quite well. Smell is like smelling a crisp apple. Nice and tart, perhaps like smelling apple juice with slightly overripe apples; almost like stepping into an apple orchard. Taste is like biting into a mixture of different apples and moves into the taste of the apple skins, without the astringent tastes of actually biting apple skins. Light-medium carbonation, lighter side of medium bodied with a crisp, dry finish. Excellent drinkability, I’d be drinking plenty of this if it were still produced. This bottle was three years old and still held up remarkabley well, I can only imagine it was more powerful when it was fresh.

Sweet, slightly tart apples with a bready, malty finish. There’s a bit of apple candy in there but not cloyingly sweet. Interesting finish..

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Ar: Lots of tart apples, hay, a bit of funk. Ap: Clear golden-amber - medium off-white head with good retention, nice ring of lacing. T: Very tart apple, but sweetness mellows the tartness - apple juice and some light caramel - a little bit of vanilla - low bitterness with a long apple-y finish. P: Medium-light body - creamy and lush - finish is medium-dry. O: This apples embodied - malt, caramel, and vanilla give it some distinctiveness from a cider - delicious and fun!

Lots of hype surrounding this one in these parts. Bottle, pour is somewhat effervescent, cloudy yellow/goldish, not much of a head. ARoma of apples, mostly like apple cider/juice. Taste is pretty much that too with a little wheat that comes in the finish. Medium to light bodied. Meh, not really my thing. Tastes mostly like apple cider.

Tart apple aroma with a hint if yeast. Cloudy gold with quickly dissipating white head. Tart apple with a sweet candy flavor. Really good.

The aroma was rich with apples and hints of caramel and brown sugar. The beer poured a hazy rich copper color with little to no head and lacing. There may have been a carbonation problem with mine. The flavor was syrupy like straight apple juice and little malt. The mouthfeel was slightly wet and creamy with a light to medium body. I enjoyed it. Thanks to Vac for scoring this one for me.

Ataraxia (416) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 12, 2014
Clear, golden amber color, off-white head. Musty aroma of apple, dough, and bread malt. A nice blend of tart and sweet flavors. Lively and crisp, very light in body, and a clean finish.

RyanMM (414) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Pours clear, pale copper with a beautiful medium head composed of super-fine bubbles. Once the head recedes it leaves moderate lacing. Strong carbonation helps bring a simply sublime sweet and tart apple aroma to your nose, like fresh cider, along with hints of spice and bread. On the palate it’s like apple pie - Lush, rich, sweet, slightly tart, and appley with the underlying brown ale acting like a pie crust. Truly fantastic stuff, but at 3.8% alcohol this one should come in 2 liter bottle for easier consumption!
