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.

Pours a hazy dark golden color with a bright white head. Smells like apple cider with spices. Flavor is like a spiked apple cider with carbonation. More sweet than sour which surprised me. Not sure if I would consider this a beer.

Aroma is apples, sweet and a little musty. Pours a clear orange, thin white head spotty lace. Flavor is more and more apples, a little more cider than ale, but oh, the is palate so there, dry, chalky prickly, puckering. The beer is really more to be felt than tasted.

Bottle pours golden with no head. Aromas are apple, like candy. Taste is similar, with definite fresh apple taste and not much else. I really thought this was tasty, but really did not see anything beer like about it. There was a hint of malt on the finish, but overall, very much like apple juice. Overall, tasty, but not what I was expecting.

Pours out like clear apple juice with only a small white ring, no head. The nose is smells like freshed-pressed apples, and thats really it. The flavour tastes equally fresh with mild barnyard funk and floral hops. The texture is slick, lightly carbonated and sugary sweet in the finish. Basically, its like a super tasty cider. I could hardly tell that this was based on a brown ale.

Yum. Nose is pure apple orchard. Light carbonation. Minimal head and lacing. Taste is apple cider with some ale highlights. Nice

This Unplugged NG pours a clear golden amber with a small white head that quickly drops to a cap. Some wispy lacing. Aroma of McIntosh apples, graced by caramel and Granny Smith greenies. Crisp and clean light body. Tastes like a topnotch cider in spite of the brown ale base. Very natural tasting and not at all cloying. Loads of fresh McIntosh flavor, accented by a touch of caramel malt. Some green apple tartness but this is more red apple sweet than tart. Excellent!

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2006 re-rate Multiple additional tastings validate the greatness of this beer. As expected though, older bottles dont hold up well.
Here we go again... a fruit beer ascending my ratings...New Glarus - you make me feel like so much less of a man! This is the rare beer that I highly anticipated and yet it exceeded my expectation.
The pour is copper, with a smallish soapy head. The aroma is of tart green apples with a caramel twist. It was a perfect choice to mix the variety of apples chosen with a brown ale..they just blend perfectly. The combination of tart and sweet leads right into a finish that is round, malty and sweet - with just the right touch of burn. There is nothing like a watery spiced cider here, just beautiful malted apples. This is truly an autumn treat, brewed by the master of the craft of fruit beer. Thanks Joeybgood!

Pours a medium copper color, and the aroma is strong sweet apples. This beer presents a strong apple taste, with some very light malt hints when the beer is not cold, as well as pear hints too. Not a bad beer, but a bit too sweet for my taste. Thanks to eyedrinkale for the bottle!
