Draught at the brewery, 2007.
Cider and pilsner mix, basically. The apple juice is allowed to ferment as well. Malt and cider aroma. Crisp and fruity, sour, with lightish malt. Apple/cider flavor. Quite tart. Beer flavor in the background, a bit of hops, a bit of malt sweetness, but sour/tart apples are the strongest. A bit of the buttery flavor there as well. Very nice. Sour apple, buttery and hop finish.
