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.

Tasting at Papsø
Deep blond color. Sweet aroma, it reminds me the perry artificial drinks from Carlsberg, in Sweden. Sweetish apple juice, with a deviation in an unpleasant direction. Mix of beer and cider? No good.

Described here as only 3.8% alcohol. My bottle is an "Unplugged" version, so I hold out hope that it is more like 6-8% alcohol. Usually a beer advertised as "Apple Ale" would be a complete turn off for me, but the New Glarus label drew me in. It really does taste like apple cider, heavy on the carbonation, with an unappealing sour/bitter aftertaste.

Nice color & aroma. Like fresh apple cider. Problem is, that’s all it taste like: apple cider. Nothing new or different about this. And it’s too light on the alcohol content. Nothing special, +plus+ it’s expensive. Pass.

1/08/14 poured from bottle into shaker pint glass. Thick head with a dark amber, copper color. Active carbonation from walls of glass. Aroma is off putting, like cloyingly sweet dirty socks. Taste is apple juice + beer. Why is this combination necessary? Let's agree to disagree and walk away. ---Rated via the Gridfather

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2014 Very crisp medium malt and hops. Nice flavor. But it really doesn’t taste like beer. It tastes like Apple Cider. Worth drinking as a novelty once in a while
