COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Apple Ale sings with the fresh crisp taste of Wisconsin Apples. Our brewmaster begins with a brown ale base employing Wisconsin farmed wheat and a blend of Cortland, MacIntosh and Jonathan apples. Our apple growing friends squeeze them especially for this brew. Expect this ale to pour a beautiful copper color. The fresh bouquet of Apple will rise to meet you even before the glass touches your lips.

Bottle shared by ippopotamo36 (thanks Alberto!). Pours amber with a minimal head. Aroma of apple, cinnamon, amaretto, maple syrup. Flavour is very sweet, unbalanced, rough. Light body, light carbonation. Not my cup of tea.

12oz bottle. Pours a nice dark Amber golden color. Aroma is mostly apples with some caramel and toasted bread. Taste is all apple up front, nice tartness with sweet finish. New Glarus knows how to do fruit beers.

superspak (5587) - Michigan, USA - JAN 18, 2016
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 7/21/2015. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big balanced sweet/tart apples, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light cinnamon/spice, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, apples, and light earthy hop/spice notes; with great strength. Taste of big balanced sweet/tart apples, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light cinnamon/spice, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate fruit tartness and light herbal/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of sweet/tart apple, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light cinnamon/spice, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt, apples, and light earthy hop/spice notes; with a great malt/tart/spiciness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from the apple acidity as well. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/acidic, and slightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4%. Overall this is a fantastic fruit beer. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt, apples, and light earthy hop/spice flavors; and very smooth and refreshing to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

12 oz bottle Straight outta ’consin. New Glarus Thumbprint Series Apple Ale is a apple juice (right?) slightly hazy brew with a fine head of white bubbles. Nose is ripe real apple aroma without fake sugar. Taste is pretty much apple. like natural sweet apple, not fake candy apple. Like a gala or Fuji. Body is thinner and a bit lively. What that beverage with the annoying apple beaning people commercials should be.

Labeled as apple ale.... Best new glaraus beer I have had. Not so candy apple or overly sweet.
