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.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

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
