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. jfb (6269) - GERMANY - FEB 12, 2017

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. DTCarl05 (30) - København, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2016
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... BeerNinjaUK (466) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2016
Bottle from Asda, Dumbarton.
Pours a light whisky amber colour, with some off-white head. Aroma is overly sweet, with interesting notes of apple, some cinnamon, nuttiness. Quite interesting at first, but I struggled to finish the bottle with the overpowering sweetness. Hartoloni (238) - - JUN 11, 2016
Pours yellow. Aroma is fruity, apple almost cider like. Taste sickly sweet apple, very odd dont think i like it! MayumiH (1214) - - JUN 6, 2016
Bottle at home. Clear golden colour. Apple flavour. Somewhat sweet and sour. Lightly hopped. Interesting one. Godfather50 (238) - SCOTLAND - MAR 10, 2016
Expecting this to be weird, but was actually different. The Apple is there but this is a beer not a cider. As a change I would definitely try another one. The quality of the beer was there in terms of balance of malt and hop and bitterness was appropriate. Mouthfeel was good. Jury is scratching their heads on this one.
