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.

This beer is simplicity itself, but that can be a beautiful thing. Deep gold in colour this beer has an incredible aroma and taste of fresh apples. Not overly sweet, it almosts tastes like a cider, but I found it delicous.

Pours a slightly hazy brownish orange, with a small fizzy white head. Lots of really nice red apple notes on the nose, slight bit of brown sugar and caramel, and very subtle piney hops and toasted malt. Tastes a lot like apple juice, though not really a bad thing, toasty malt and caramel, lots and lots of apple, and not overly sweet. Not a whole lot different than cider, but just with a nice caramely malt character to go with it.

A nice aroma gives this beer a very solid start, but it goes down hill from there... Color is a beautiful copper shade but I had absolutely no luck getting head from this beer...... the flavor is very apply and sweet. Right away it is kind of pleasent, but it quickly grates on my palate almost to the point of sickening. Another syrupy fruity overrated (in my opinion) beer from New Glarus...

Poured into a pint. Copper apple juice like color. Same aroma, fresh pressed apples. Perfect apple flavor. Not too much like a beer and not too much like and overly sweet cider. Low carbonation fits the bill.

Clear gold, just like apple cider. Nice apple aroma. Nice sweet apple flavor. Medium body. Not bad

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear golden/yellow color with a small had that could use some more retention and lacing is ok. Aroma is well.....apples. Big green apple nose with a slight hint of spice. Flavor is sweet apple up front with a touch of almost caramel and cinnamon at the end. Its almost like caramel dipped apples. The thing I like the best about it is that it very different from a cider. Its a nice mix of apples and beer. Another winner for New Glarus and fruit beers!

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Pours light, cloudy brown with small head. Aroma of fresh apples but of sournbess as well. Taste is beautiful. Apples come through clear and crisp, but not overwhelmingly. Not as sour as a lambic, but more sour than a standard fruit beer. Leaves nothing to be desired. Smooth, drinks exceptionally well. A shame to do anything but sip this, as it is best to make it last long into the evening. For its style, not much better.

Bottle unplugged. Nice golden hue, aroma buttered popcorn and apple. Taste is apple juice/cider with some spice aftertaste. Not bad.

sleestak (226) - Williamston, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2009
12 oz Unplugged bottle. Copper pour with only a thin white ring at the edge of the glass. Aroma is tons of the sweetest, crispest apples imaginable. Taste is very cidery at first, followed by a lovely malt finish. Some caramel pushes the autumnal majesty even more. Mouthfeel much closer to cider than beer; incredibly drinkable. I prefer this to the Raspberry Tart, but nothing can touch the Belgian Red.

bottle courtesy of Brady (thanks): Pours like apple juice it has that distinct cloudiness that you get with apple juice. Aroma is like apple juice infused with yeast. Taste is sweet apples almost like an apple cider. I almost believe this could be good warmed up. New Glarus really knows how to do the fruit beers. This beer tows the line of beer and apple cider. You can still get a yeasty, alcohol (very light), dry finish. It’s like apple juce with a little extra. Good.
