Wombata (468) - Kobe, JAPAN - SEP 8, 2014
Aroma: Bready, graham cracker, dark chocolate, spice Palate: Flavor: Orange, graham, bread, spice. More orange on the mid-palate with moderate bittering throughout. Flavors gradually fade and leave a soft end to the finish. Comment: Well-made, not overly sweet, better than it sounds and gets better as it warms.

Apple cinnamon in a brew, the effect works quite nicely and the balance is fine, not too sweet nor too sour. Funky cinnamon powder finish on the palate. Certainly a girlís favorite, nice dessert drink too.

I finally tried this fall ale on tap at Marciero last October and was a bit disappointed. It was a nice lightly spiced ale but had virtually no apple flavor though the cinnamon came through. Once it warmed up to room temperature there may have been a hint of fruitiness. It seemed popular with ladies as it is light, refreshing & drinkable just not as much apple as I expected from the name.

shoulderbroken (2202) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 16, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2013 Tap at Watering Hole. Dark amber colour, small golden head. Not much smell, bit of apple but canít get the cinnamon, quite sweet. Taste is alright, apples again, sweet, very slight spice in the background. Maybe slight mulled wine taste. Pumpkin type body. Nice enough, by maybe past itís best. Rerate 25/10/13 Taste is very brown bread, and tea. Not so much apple. Little cinnamon burn. Alright. Aroma is very grainy. No change in the score.

sulawang (644) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2012
pours red tea brown, quickly dissipating head, medium CO2 with bits of micro, ringed retention, minimal slippery retention, very few slow-moving CO2 streams. Some woody unfiltered apple juice and honey on the nose. Creamy up front, minor apple juice, traces of cinnamon, apricot, 4/10 sweetness, slight 5/10 semi-sharp bitter finish. Medium complexity, low-medium depth, okay carry, medium length, watery in the middle. Main complain is that neither the apple nor the cinnamon are prominent enough to discern. Lackluster compared to their full-bodied stout counterparts.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 25, 2010
Draft at Craftheads (Tokyo), a dark ruby brown. Baked apple on the nose. Sugary apple in the mouth, with touches of cinnamon. Quite smooth overall.

KyotoLefty (6739) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 10, 2010
Bottle. Bright, deep amber-red color with a thick, one-finger head. Sweet, spicy aroma of apple cider and cinnamon. Some caramel and amber malt in the background. Citrus in there too, as well as some nutmeg. Really smells like apple pie or mulled cider. Relatively restrained, though. Sweet, spicy flavor, big cinnamon and caramel with chocolate. Apple is quite in the background. There is a bit of a sour tinge, plus a decent amount of bitterness in the finish. Actually, the finish is very bitter for such a sweet dessert beer. Makes it easy to drink, since it would be cloying without it. Rather rich, full body too. A remarkable well done beer. I really like it, even though generally donít go for this kind of thing.

TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2009
Copper with thin off white head. Gentle apples and grasses on the nose. Taste was light citrus and hoppy apple, faint, but the cinnamon was tied in as well. Aftertaste true to the name. I was surprised at this beer. I was ready for a sourish run of the mill attempt, but it really does taste the part.
