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.

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!

12oz bottle, out in the cold of Sexual Chocolate 2011. Aroma of straight Apple juice, this one had some interesting subtle cinnamon hints and a sweet Apple flavor. Love it!

GABF 2004. I found a small treasure trove of old ratings sheets that I hadnt enterred; this is one of them. Smells good, somewhat sweet and yeasty, but nothing to go crazy over. Was lightish bodied and not as sour as the Red or Tart, mostly sweet, with distinct flavor of MacIntosh apples (the red ones with the waxy skins). Good beer.

Sweet spiced apple aroma. Pours an effervescent amber colored cider-like liquid. Fizzy head disappears quickly after pouring. Taste is sweet with very little maltyness. Palate is wonderfully crisp and bubbly. Very light with little alcohol, thus, it is very drinkable. Perfect for the holidays as an adult alternative to normal cider. Wont fill you up while eating a heavy meal. Nice fruit beer. New Glarus really cant be beat on fruit beers.

Bottle with James, Andrew, and Maggi. smells just like a sour apple candy. Taste is very apple juice like with some slight nuttiness. really easy to drink.

Pours light copper with little head. Smells like apple cider. Very fruity aroma. Interesting flavor. Lots of apple flavor. Very tart. At the same time, lots of malt flavor. If you can imagine a nice amber beer with tart apples, blended oddly very nice, because it sounds horrible, but is actually great, this would be it. This is definitely not a cider. This is a must try if you want something different.

Super delicious. You can taste the ale part in this, but its mostly tart apple, but not like a hard cider. Very unique and tasty. Well done.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Pours caramel in color, looks and smells like apple cider. There is little to no head at all on this, but a nice amount of carbonation. Taste is similar to a dry apple cider.
