Apple juice in color-like it should be in a sippie cup. Nose has large apple notes, spiced cider notes, and tart skin. Flavor is sweet sugary apples, spice, sweet finish. Just a slight touch of apple skin tartness in the finish. Moderate high carbonation. Not horrible not amazing.

(bottle - 12 oz) Pale gold pour with a fizzy white head. Very mild carbonation. Light apple cider aroma with a very light grassy undertone. Flavor isnít quite a light pils and isnít quite apple cider but has just those light hints of both of them. Better than I thought it would be and very refreshing.

Bottle. Pours a crystal clear golden color with no head on it. Nose has a very light crisp dry apple note to it, but the smell is weak. Taste is much like an uneventful cider. Lots of apple in there, not too sweet, and uneventful. Meh.

Gription79 (2232) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma was rotten apples, sulfur, hot alcohol. The flavor is green apple jolly rancher, sweet syrup. Not good. Bitter, astringent, carbonic acid. Footbalmed!

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 Yeah, the barrage of commercials for this during the NCAA playoffs finally sucked me in. Pint can poured into a pint glass, although I would have been just as well to drink it out of the paper bag. Pint can costs $1.50, not exactly Founderís or Three Floyds quality here. Pours a clear, fizzy yellowish amber. No head or lacing at all. Aroma of imitation apple similar to processed kids apple juice. Taste is a lot like hard apple cider with a pack worth of Sweet Tart candy in it. Extremely sugary and sweet. There is definitely a ton of sugar in this. No beer taste at all. Calling this an ale is like calling Mad Dog 20/20 wine. Palate is thin, watery, heavily carbonated. Finish is bitter but with a candy like sweetness. Overall...I dunno. I want to dislike this, but canít completely. While I think it is more of the sweet tooth talking, I like this. No way I could drink more than a pintís worth at a time without getting a sugar headache though.

Reddís Apple Ale has a thin, white, fizzy head, which dies right away, no lacing, and a very bubbly, clear, golden appearance (think apple juice). The aroma is much like an inexpensive, sparkling apple wine, and the taste is the same. One does pick up the slightest shade of barley malt in this, but bitterness is nonexistent. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Reddís Apple Ale finishes crisp, fairly refreshing, and drinkable. It is more lager-like than ale-like, really. For what it is (and, thatís a style I donít particularly like), I rate it as "good" (or a "B"). If you like flavored beer, youíll probably like it. If you donít, you probably wonít be thrilled with it. RJT

Strange, not quite a cider, not quite a pale lager though it retains elements of both (the ale moniker notwithstanding). Is it good as a cider? No, it has the apple juice qualities of many macro ciders. Is it good as a pale lager? No. But in this case the whole is truly more than the sum of its parts. The apple flavors make it a little more flavorful than most pale lagers, and the beer parts make it less sweet and cloying than many macro ciders. On the whole, drinkable.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a touch of light caramel color and zero head. The nose is light apple skins with some light sugary sweetness. The flavor is rather sweet with lots of apple juice and not a whole lot else going on. Thereís no beer flavor or even a whole lot of alcohol noticeable in this. Rather sticky and clingy on the mouthfeel with fizzy prickly carbonation. This is pretty bad. Obviously catering to the malternative crowd here.

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Relatively light sweetness compared to what I expected, with crisp-ish apples and a relatively clean finish. Really not that bad.
