Draft at Snallygaster. Hazy golden color, thick cream colored head with good retention and solid lacing. Beautiful aroma of fresh apple pulp and apple skins. Taste is softly sour apple sauce. Delicious. Iphonephan (7287) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 27, 2013
In draft at Beer run in Charlottesville. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Fruity nose. Flavors of banana and other tropical fruits along with apple cider. Medium bodied. High carbonation. Lingering tart finish. metalhead0043 (342) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2014
On tap at Triangle Wine Co. Pours a clear gold with a very small white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Aroma is mostly apples, but has a little spice, citrus and a very slight malt backing as well. Taste lies mostly within the realm of sweet apples and candied sugar. Body is average, texture is slick and slightly creamy. Slick mouthfeel, heavy carbonation. Overall this is a pretty decent beer. I’m not a huge cider or fruit beer fan but this one is pretty easy to drink and the taste isn’t offensive. Worth a shot. Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 24, 2013

Rake. Keg. Yet another pretty scarce Flying Dog brew at the Rake. Thanks again fo Rich Dinwoodie and Mike Hill for securing this stuff for us rabid UK drinkers! It’s a clear gold beer with no real head which is something of a surprise as the beer certainly has adequate crispy carbontation. Light thin malt cream. Fresh crispy apple. Whisper of citric hops. Crisp dry finish. A definite cider vibe here but with enough malt and hops to remimd that this is a beer! Tasty!
Pale yellow, some lacing. Faint aroma of hard cider. Flavor is slightly bitter, somewhat tannic, with a bit of grain peeking it’s head through. Finishes dry. Apple is hard to detect but when sampled along side the cider made from the same apples, the flavor explodes. This creates an amazing contrast which should be tried.

Lightly sour apple ale, with a nice balance between cider & APA flavors. This odd style isn’t a real favorite, but this was solid. On draft at Good Beer. RichTheVillan (8248) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2014
