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. Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Pours a clear golden color with thin off white head. Aroma is of light floral hops, apple and roasted grains. Taste is much the same with the apple becoming a bit upfront, but never over the top. Finishes pretty easy. vikingguy (1106) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - MAY 28, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2014 Hazy copper color with small head. Sweet woodsy apple aroma. Taste - pleasantly surprised as I wasn’t expecting much. I was expecting a cider which I’m not too fond of and instead I got a cream ale with some sweet and tart apple flavors. Not as acidic as a cider and you get the grainy beer backbone. This is unique and a fine summer session ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2011
This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity. Ericular (1032) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Aroma is sweet, ripe apples. Taste is really sticky sweet... not as much as a cider, but still a bit too much. This is mainly apple with a very mild bread undertone. Palate is dry and sweet, a bit too sticky for my taste.

Not as bad as I had heard it was going to be. Pour was medium golden with a small off-white head. Aroma decorated with bitter apples, light cinnamon, maybe some nutmeg, and floral characters. The flavor was well blended and mellow. Again bitter apples accompanied the cream ale itself which seemed to work well together. There seemed to be a bit too much carbonation but overall it wasn’t so bad. Could use some more spice overall for my own liking. Maybe worth a purchase but not a second.

Not a bad apple beer, but not a very good cream ale. But the drinking experience was decently pleasant, so where all this nets out in my mind is with a pretty average rating, but should earn extra consideration from those looking for something unique and different to try.
It poured a pretty dark caramel color, with decent white head formation. Aroma was definitely apple...and cidery, with some caramel maltiness under it all. Flavor was rather caramel-y up front which I didn’t find particular appropriate for a cream ale but tasted pretty good. The apple character was notable but not overpowering. In the taste (versus the smell) aroma was less like cider and more like bitter apple. Mouthfeel was pretty unremarkable. Not bad.
I’d weakly recommend it. Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2008
Bottle pours clear amber with very little head or lace. The aroma is of dry white wine. The flavor is a strange blend of a sour apple fruit ale, with a disjoint lingering malt note that does not flow together well. The palate is rather sritzy and somewhat refreshing. Overall, this one is not great. Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Pours a watered-down gold color, with no head and a few spots of lacing. Aroma is dry, with slight apple peel, and basement. Taste is apple peel, with a weird nutty malt note. Has some refreshing carbonation, and is pretty refreshing. But nothing special. It is no cream ale, though. KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Orange color. Smell of malt, Granny Smith apples, spices and a hint of caramel. Taste of apples, malt, bread, spices and flowers. Acidic and dry.
