Reason for the higher score is that it is excellent for cooking. Beer batter recipe for crispy fish is awesome that I have come up with as a chef. One cup of flour, 1/2 cup of semolina, 1 teaspoon of kosher salt, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, half teaspoon of garlic powder, teaspoon of pepper, one bottle of red’s Apple ale.
The semolina will allow the batter to stay crispy even if the chicken or fish sets for an extended period of time. The sweetness of the Reds adds a flavor to the batter that is awesome.

Its apple juice.. sweet and fruity but not as much as a cider. Not really beer but tasty and inoffensive. Try it with some hot cinnamon liqueur or whiskey. .. much more interesting.

From bottle, taste like a carbonated apple juice. No real beer flavour. Can't smell the apples.

This is pretty tasty carbonated apple juice. As beer, it’s not so great. It’s drinkable at fittest but cloys more and more as it warms.

It could use about 5% more alcohol content. It should at least smell like apples! To be honest, it has the slightest of carbonation, and in that you can discern the fruit. Many ratings complain that it’s too sugary or fruity. .. I say not enough. From a tap at Dave & Busters.

Modest apple contributon to a cheap ale. Clear amber color with almost no head, and thin body!

Not too shabby for an apple brew. If I’m going this much apple, I’d rather reach for a Draft cider like Hornsbys.

Flute. Sweet artificial apple odor. Pale clear good, plenty of carbonation. Crisp apple taste. It’s drinkable but there’s better out there.
