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.

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.

12oz bottle courtesy of ughsmash, light orange color, looks like apple juice. First whiff is apples and apple juice, surprise! Smells really sweet, not sure if I like it. Very strange taste, like the malts are wrestling the apples for control of the beer. Not a bad beer at all just very, very weird. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-27-2009 03:33:42

Bottle (Unplugged Apple Ale) Pours out a crisp clear gold apple juice. Topped with no head. Just a very nice apple aroma. the Aroma was of sweet apples and a touch of spice. The tast was juice all apple juice all the time. Crazy sweet and a hint of spice. Thanks Toby

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

Bottle.

Clear gold like apple juice, big juicy apple aroma, flavor of apple juice all of the way through, not so much beer character behind it. Prickly, astringent mouthfeel makes it somewhat less refreshing than it otherwise could be; on the other hand, props for the <4% abv. Quite drinkable if rather straightfoward and rather concealing of its beer origins.

Went on a mad beer spending spree up in Madison and bought many New Glarus products. Pours a dark orange color with off white head. Smells of a cider beer and flavor is apple cider. Not a big fan of ciders but this is pretty decent.

Apple cider aroma. Pours blonde with no head. Fresh apple juice, cider-like, malty sweetness, spicy hops, a mild tartness, spicy dry finish.

Bottle courtesy of braconid from TBS. Thanks! Pours an orangeish gold with a white head. Head fades fast, very bubbly. I’m not sure how this is in the 98th percentile here. It’s not a bad beer, but it almost tastes more like a cider to me. Very sharp, biting flavor, very sour - like an apple. Crisp. I can’t see myself being able to drink more than a handful of these in a sitting.

Bottled
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 :)

Notes from 11/26/2010 12 oz. bottle from Steve’s Madison Ar: Lots of apple, obviously. Fall McIntosh and tart varieties dominate. Perhaps a touch of caramel malt. Ap: Pours a golden amber with streaks of orange. Not a ton of head, but brilliantly translucent. T: Lots of apple sweetness on the front, but not much tartness. This would be exponentially better with a bit tart punch. P: Champagne-like carbonation. O: I remember this being significantly better during the last vintage (2008?). A big tart bite would have made this one great, but it just wasn’t there.
