3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: $1.75 from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours golden amber with a small white head. Smells of apple, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Tastes of apples and spices - lingering peppery finish. Tasty - not something I’d drink all the time. Tastes to me exactly like apple spice herbal tea.

Overall, this beer is as advertised which is an apple beer. It definitely has the taste of a beer as opposed to being a cider. Its good but nothing impressive, as advertised. The cinnamon wasnt overpowering thankfully and very drinkable.

The measure against which every apple beer should be measured is Ephemere and this one just doesn’t stack up. Overly sweet, sticky, lacking the dry tartness that reminds you of beer rather than cider.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear solar yellow with a thick but effervescent off-white head - looks more like a cider than a beer. Aroma reinforces the cider perception, having a strong apple note and some cinnamon as well, just a hint of malt. Smells like a fresh apple pie. Flavor, though, is a little more beer-like; now the wheaty malt comes through, though the main flavor is still apple, and a cinnamon tone accompanies them. Texture is smooth and firm but lacks fizz. Still, go ahead and pick one to enjoy on a nice crisp fall day.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Slightly cloudy gold pour with a thin white head. Very light on the apple aroma but has a nice touch of cinnamon. Flavor starts off with a nice and smooth cinnamon flavor and very light apples that really come through at the end. Crisp clean finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Best enjoyed before: 09/13. A hazy amber pour with a skim of a beige head. Apple pie filling / caramel apples / apple cider aroma - delicious! Goes down very thin and crisp. Caramel and apples upfront taste-wise. Cinnamon follows. A grainy finish. Pretty straightforward and one-dimensional. A very enjoyable fruit beer.

On tap at Millers Alehouse. Pours a clear gold with small white head. The aroma is spice and apple. Thin mouthfeel with a light watery cinnamon and spice. Not much going on with this one.

WOW... I have never been a fan of apple-style beers... Until Now!! Not something you can drink a lot of, because its sweet, however it reminds me of cinnamon applesauce! Enjoyed!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2013 (Bottle) Orangey amber colour with brief, frothy, off-white head. Fruity nose with cinnamon, red apples, brown sugar, bread and hints of citrus peel. Fruity taste with notes of apples, cinnamon, wheat, white bread, honey, custard and hints of citrus peel. Low bitterness. Medium body, with a balanced sweetness. Quite interesting and refreshing but hardly exciting.

Strong cinnamon taste and flavor. Smooth. Would be great as a shooter with ice cream after a turkey. Great execution, just not something I’d love to drink a ton of.
