Maybe it's just me but I never got much apple flavour from this, usually I can taste fruity flavours mango, citrus etc in some of my favourite pale ales, but not here, just taste like vaguely fruity beer.

Aus der Flasche im 2017-09 getrunken. Das Ale schmeckt wie ein schwach gehopftes APA mit einer nicht definierbaren Fruchtnote. Für ein Fruchtbier fehlt überraschenderweise jede Art von Fruchtsäure. Schade!

Taste this in the Douglas Hotel, Brodick on the 7th September 2017. 500ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Clear amber in colour with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly malty with hints of green apple. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a digestive biscuit base with clear green apple fruit notes quite evident but more apple and white grape shloer than cider though. Very little hop resins noted in the short bitter aftertaste - despite the four varieties! Just a quick dusty afterthought and lets get back to the apples! Finish is malty with sweet fruity notes of white grape and green apple really stride to the forefront. This is an excellent Fruit Beer albeit one dimensional.

Bottle in Edimburgh. A mix between beer and cider, a bit sweet, maybe it would be a better cider for a beer lover than a beer, but i find it pleasant and refreshing

The beer has a nice look. The color of the beer is amber. The beer seems to have a little cloudiness. You can still look through though. On toop of the beer a nice layer of soft white foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses quickly, leaving a nice soft drape of foam. The smell of the beer is lovely. It reminds me a little of Irish ales. There is a nice maltiness as a base. On top of this I smell delicate herbal and spicy, slightly citrusy hop aromas. On top there are some fruity sweets of stone fruit and a lovely sweet and slightly sour aroma of apple. It is really delicate, not clearly apple (it doesn’t scream apple juice!!!), but a interesting touch to the hops, really enhancing the hop aroma’s. Genius addition. It is a very natural aroma; not an artificial over the top sweet fruit aroma. The taste is the same. It has a clear malty ale like base, containing some grainy flavours. On top of this, there are yeasty flavours, a small hint of liquorice, sweet and sour apples, hops, the taste of alcohol. It is all in good balance. Again, the apple doesn’t stand on the foreground, but it enhances and blends together all of the other flavours. It really gives that crunch they claim it to give. The palate of the beer is good. Medium body, medium light carbonation, quite a smooth texture. The finish is nice and fruity, and apple like refreshing. Great beer. I like it.

(bottle) clear deep golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of buttered-up apples and sweet spices, with some notes of earth, raisins and raspberry jam. flavour is mostly yeast and pale malts, with some light sugar icing, almond skins and a semi-dry finish. medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

Bottle at The Admiral, Glasgow. Apple pulp and skins aroma. Lght gold with thin white head. Sweet cider taste, with beery hnts. Light with a dry finish. Refreshing.

500ml bottle from Scottish Real Ale Shop, Kilmahog. Pours clear gold, white head. Aroma presents some apple funk. Taste is light golden ale territory with some apple cider influence. Neither here nor there really.

This is the bastard child of Budweiser and apple juice. Be a cider or be an ale. What the fuck. Indecisive and it shows.

Amazing beer! Tastes a bit like a mix of cider and beer! Might be very good with dessert...
