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.

Thanks to jsquire for bringing this one to our Fort Wayne Tasting last Friday night. Small fizzy off-white head with sparse lacing, transparent, orange copper hue, and fast rising carbonation. Aroma was malty, caramel, sweet, and yes, apples! Flavor was sweet, acidic, tart, sour, malty, caramel, and apples. Tingly mouthfeel.

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.

Pours chill hazy amber, with some malt aroma and a flavor dominated by tart apple, wheat and touch of oak.

12 oz bottle, thanks to Ughsmash. Pours orange with faint offwhite head and almost no carbonation. The aroma is faint and cidery with a bit of a grainy hint. The flavor is pretty much like cider... apples, a little bit of spice, and a distant grain note. Decent enough, I guess, but itís a cider, not a beer.

12 oz bottle courtesy of secret santa, a want list item. Pours a amber-brown color with a very small off-white head that immediately fades to nothing. The aroma is mild with some apple and dust. The flavor is similar to carbonated apple cider with some mild grains and yeast. The palate is light with prickly carbonation. Finishes short and sweet. Overall: Good, but I expected more.

12oz bottle scored as an extra in a trade with Tooch. Pours a transparent, honey copper amber with zero head. Looks like a New Glarus beer. Nose is nice, apples, sort of brown oxidized apples, apples on the ground at an orchard, caramel, sweet. Flavor is apples, apple juice (not cidery), some light malt, some grass. Light on the palate but crisp. Refreshing and very approachable from a fruit standpoint. The wife loved it.

Sampled at The Stableís Beer Loverís anonymous. A light and clear pour. A cidery aroma and flavor. There are some very light spices and this is much like an apple juice. It is so easy to drink.

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...

Crockett (1034) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2005
Pours lightly hazy orange/apple juice. Nose of much tinned pie filling, apple, cellar and spiced cider. Not much acidity. Too sweet. Some cinnamon and nutmeg, brown sugar and traces of yeast funk. A little disappointing.

In short: An apple pie in a bottle. Light and extra clean. It is what it is, a little oddity fun in small quantities.
How: Bottles, 2008 unplugged release. Bottles received from MatSciGuy, thanks a lot Levi. Consumed fresh and shared at tasting session with Montreal crew.
The look: Clear golden body with almost no head
In long: Nose of apple pie with cinnamon. Taste is really apple pie with cinnamon, crisp crust and all. An overall sensation of crumble. Medium carbonation, very light body. This is a very very clean beer, a bit too sparkling clean for my liking. This beer has very little body and the mouthfeel is rather boring. I understand itís a 3.8% beer but New Glarus have proven they can make nourishing full body fruit beer with a similar gravity. Also while this original taste is kind of fun the first few sips it quickly gets tiresome. On one hand I admire the originality of this offering but on the other hand this is not something I could drink regularly or in large quantities. So I have mix feeling about it like a cheap fat Texan standing in front of a free all-you-can eat fruits and vegetables buffet.
