My goal in building the recipe for Fallen Apple was to create a seasonal specialty that was in and of itself a celebration. I start with fresh-pressed cider from early harvest apples we get from Kickapoo Orchards in Gays Mills. Fermentation leaves the cider tart and champagne-like. I then brew a cream ale designed to put some sweetness and body back into the beer, which rounds out the sour apple notes. This combination of ethereal apple flavor grounded in an “everyman’s” beer makes for a festive and potent brew.

Pours a lovely clear, orange-copper. Aroma is of apples. Tastes like a light pilsener into which some apple juice has been mixed. Not altogether unpleasant, but really not all that memorable, either.

Bottle pours gold with a white head. Aroma is sweet and tart with notes of apple cider, earth, and the slightest hint of vanilla. Flavor shows the same with a light toffee/bread malt underneath. Overall body is light and soft with a slightly tart finish.

More cider than beer, this has a light amber color with a small head. The aroma is apples, tart and tasty like from the orchard. the flavor is more apples, again tart and tasty. Smooth and easy. A nice beer for the fall.

Light color, no head. Crisp and clean tasting. Goes down smooth. Very sweet, almost like candy, somewhere between beer and hard cider. I liked it overall.

Clear amber, white cover. Aroma is a clash of sour apple and sweet corn. The taste is more pleasant, light tart apple most of the way through, then a finish of corn and sweet malt. These flavors do best when they don’t try to meld.

Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head.

The aroma is very apple-y, sort of sweet smelling, with some tartness and a fair dose of yeastiness.

The flavor is banana bread right up front, this turns to more focus on tart apples and light toasted malt. The beer is fairly sweet, perhaps a little too sweet. I like the apple flavor here no doubt.

Tap. Clear golden color. No head and only a small ring around the neck of the glass. Aroma is sweet and apple like. Reminds me of apple jolly ranchers. Taste is slightly tart like green apples. Fairly thin as that is all I realt get. Still reminds me of apple jolly ranchers. Could use some more carbonation. Just looks dead and lifeless.

Bottle. Pours a straw yellow with a fizzy white head. Weak apple aroma with a hint of grains. Flavor was sweet apples, grainy malts and a touch of tartness.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

Found this cider beer comba at the Ba Runi. Smells a little like apple. Taste is of course apple cider with more apple than I expected. Lager beer fer sure in the background. Looks like pale lager. Borders on sweet, a little more sweetness than I expected for a cider like beer. I’m used to the dry ciders, now. Decent co2. Not bitter to say the least. Yes, just simply an apple falvored beer, not many of those out there. Finish is just plain apple lager even tho it says cream ale on the label.
