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 sliffy courtesy of ofortuna. Aroma of maltiness and some apple sweetness with some cider and cinnamon notes. Very sweet apple tasting beer that had the slightest bitterness in it. Very crisp apple flavor. I wish they would make this again because this beer is awesome.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip. Apple Ale looks like apple cider with a more robust head. It is a caramel or dark golden orange color with a hazy effervescence. The cap on top froths up suitably, eventually leaving a few wisps of a cap and a ring around the edge of the glass. Tons of red apple notes in the aroma. It smells sweet and again reminds me of apple cider. There is a bit of a tart acidity that enters my nose as well. The flavor is nearly spot on for sparkling apple cider. The flavor starts with a burst of red apple skin and sugary apples, with only the tartness giving away any clue that this is not a cider. A bit of white grape juice or white wine adds a little more character to the flavor. Not much from the malt bill actually gets through, and there are certainly no hops present. The crisp carbonation suits this beer well. It has a light to medium body, and the sweetness from the flavor carries over into a sensation on the lips. Duplicating the flavor of a cider is an interesting feat, but it is not what I am really looking for in a beer. I would drink this again, but I have enjoyed New Glarus other fruit beers more.

12oz bottle. Fairly clear gold pour. Not much head and no lacing or retention. Nose is apple. Taste is apple. Fairly similar to sparkling cider but not as sweet. Crisp and refreshing. I really like this for what it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle split with mcberko. Pours a hazy copper orange with next to no head. Aroma of subtle clean fresh apples, some creaminess - possibly vanilla, also some apricot and caramelised sugar. Flavour is as expected from the aroma, delicately sweet, crisp, refreshing, nothing offensive. Similar to a pleasant cider. Decent session beer.

Bottle from Chase... thanks! Slightly cloudy copper color with short lasting white head. Very nice apple cider aroma. Lively mouthfeel, with an nice apple tartness. Balances nicely between tart green apple and sweet cider.

12 oz. brown bottle thanks to Skyview. A golden brown beer with a small head. The aroma has apples(duh!!), but comes off as a fermented apple juice. The taste is sweet and apple and not all that different than apple juice but with some alcohol. This is a lot like a cider.

pours clear rose with no head or lacing. aroma is very sugary with strong apple notes. taste is sweet and body is syrupy. theres almost a sour ale quality here but the apple predominates with cranberry in the background. finish is sweet but light.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy dark orange. Aroma is apples. Flavor is a nice balance a sweet apple and a slight sour finish. Flavors is definitely green apple with some caramel. Very well done apple beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
