2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Drinking from a bottle, I wonít bother pouring. The aroma is candyish, not unpleasant, but not really anything like an ale. Looks good due to artificial coloring, a sort of light copper. The taste of this product is not nearly as Kool Aidish as the aroma; the apple flavoring is not subtle but nowhere near as overwhelming as the scent would make you think. As for the "ale" part of the name, I canít say I detect anything approaching ale in the flavor. It does finish pleasantly clean. It is also worth nothing that the palate is quite thin for an "ale". Overall, itís tasty and inoffensive but not worth the price tag. An authentic hard cider could be had for the same price as opposed to this artificial concoction.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
From tallboy. Light hiss when opening. Appears to be a transparent pale golden color. Lots of apple aroma, but like a warm apple thatís been sitting out and gotten brown, lots of cereal, grainy character, not incredibly appetizing. Apple in flavor is dominant, tastes like a cider mixed with bud light. Apple character just doesnít have a crispness to it, very flat, one noted. Finishes with a light lager-esque flavor, but I know...itís brewed like an ale. Just meh.

12oz bottle pours a pale apple juice color without any head. Definite apple flavor addition. A bit of apple sourness at the end.

Itís perfect for a hot day at the lake. If you want to enjoy a beer while watching the game, get a real beer.

Pours golden yellow with no head. Aroma is sweet apple juice. Flavor is very sweet apple juice. Not much "ale" going on here. Ok though.

Cloyingly sweet apple juice with high carbonation and not much of a hint of anything substantial beyond that. Itís not disgusting, but Iíd have a hard time finishing an entire bottle. Just spiked apple juice, really.

You know, this isnít really all that bad. Better than a wine cooler in my opinion. Sort of like drinking apple juice with a faint hint of beer. I have friends who donít care for beer, but drink a ton of this. They plan on having some at there wedding, and Iíll havve no problem drinking it.

I believe taste is relative to what you like. I see so many bad reviews on this beer and I donít understand why. If you are looking for a robust, dark beer with a thick aroma this is not the beer for you. However if you are typically a fruity drink type of person that doesnít typically drink beer then this would be a nice beer for you. I happen to enjoy this beer because of itís light taste and apple flavor. You can also have fun with it and mix it with some caramel type shots if you want to make your taste buds dance a bit. I think this beer doesnít get enough credit... yea itís nothing fancy and the alcohol content is typical of any other bog name beer but itís the apple flavor that makes it unique and refreshing to drink! THUMBS UP in my book!

Bottle at my sisters place. Copper gold, no head. Smells and tastes like apple juice mixed with a Miller light... Meh
