Unfortunately uses extract instead of actual apples, but still alright. Too candy like but an interesting combination nonetheless.

On tap at the Old Market Portland OR. Pours out clear gold topped with a small head. A nice sour apple aroma on this one. Tast off apples not bad.

BrewDad (4772) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2007
{Tap - Old Market Pub] Off yellow with a light head. The aromja was light as a light beer would beer. The apple flavor was very light and almost like I have seen jolly rancher type. It was Ok as fruit beers go.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 17, 2006
This has a bit of toffee and sour apple jolly rancher flavor, with just a bit of caramel covered apple fruitiness, almost vinous and ciderish at times. Not very tasty or easy to drink.

On tap at the Old Market. This was an interesting brew, but the thing I don’t like about Old Market’s fruit beers is the artificial/candy sweetening taste that they get. This brew had an apple taste that only really reminded me of apple jollyrancher, I wish they would use real fruit instead of whatever artificial stuff they use. Overly sweet and candy taste leaves this brew tasting like one of those sweet green apple icicle pops.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2004
This is pretty much a cider. Not sure why they call it a beer. Yellow color with immediate sweetness and a dominant sour apple taste. Too sweet. Like one of those sour apple pops.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Golden color, no head. Malty aroma with a touch of apples in the flavor. Not fresh at all though. Bad hop finish. Not sweet, more musty and dry.

Clear yellow. Sweet hopped sugar aroma of light apples with a flavor to match. Old wheat and mild apples in the finish, with a thin body.
