"has many cider-like aspects, excpet for the obvious malt in the flavor more than the aroma. a touch of hops makes it’s way through too, but really, this beer is all about the fresh apples from the local area. well done - i’d get again."

From Scott's growler (week old). Aroma was of apple cider and lager. Flavor is the same and fairly refreshing. Pretty good beer.

4 ounce taster at the Brewery Tasting Room. Smells and tastes o apple juice. Nice sour finish. 0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 3, 2011
12oz bottle. Cloudy, straw-colored body topped with a small white head with good retention. Aroma is apple, citrus hops, some caramel malts--mild and sweet. Body is medium-light with a surprising amount of foamy carbonation (lots) and a dry, astringent finish. Flavor is lightly sweet, apple, caramel, and a surprising amount of hops on the tart finish, flavor of grapefruit rind pith in the hops with some other citrus notes. Crisp, refreshing, the hops are too much and not very flavorful. Aftertaste is long, woody, and infused with mildly tart apples. marcus (10865) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 8, 2010
Pours cloudy yellow with a beautiful fluffy white head and a faint apple aroma. There is a decent caramel malt base, but it doesn’t complement the apple juice very well. Their apple cider is much better.

On tap and the Raley Field Brewfest in West Sacramento, CA. Something just wasn’t right about this beer. The apple flavor was definately there, but was not well balanced. Overall an average attempt...I guess apple flavor is better in cider. beerguy101 (5364) - Newark, California, USA - APR 6, 2009
Sampled on 4/6/2009. This fruit beer pours a slightly cloudy medium orange gold color from a 112oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is apple ciderish, malty and spicy. A medium to light bodied fruit beer. The malts are fruity and sweet. Mostly apple cider and spices. Hops are very mild, maybe earthy. Kind of a cross between an amber ale and apple cider. Not sure if it really works. Apple flavors are semi-sweet. Decent carbonation. Nice balance. Worth trying, but not really my cup of tea. It needs a little more tartness in the apples and some citrusy hops. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet. Oscbert (1335) - Lincoln, California, USA - OCT 17, 2008
~Pours a cloudy amber color with small off white head.
~A spicy apple cider aroma with predominate amount of wheat.
~Flavor is a bit watered down. Some crisp apples in there.Couldn’t detect any tartness Pretty weak.
~Light feel with some carbonation. Hardly any finish.
~It’s ok. Thats about it though. Just ok.
