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.

I thought this tasted just like the apple pies that they sell at McDonalds - its only missing the crust! Strong apple-cinnamon-brown sugar aroma. Its a pretty good looking brew - looks like a brown bubbly, slightly hazy apple juice. Taste is full and sweet, not as "sharp" as a cider - smooth bodied. Thanks for sharing this, Garin!

Bottle. Poured a coppery gold color...minimal head. Green apples are all over the nose with this one. Hits you like the Raspberry Tart does. Strong aroma. Flavor is very much like apple cider, but maybe a tad lighter...more sweet than tart. Some malts I suppose, but this is still all apple. Very refreshing in a way. Couldnt drink a ton of it, but its tasty and different.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2013 Bottle from StFun -- many thanks! Ive been dying to try this for a while. It means a lot to me. To snifter it pours a clear, darkish orange with a quickly-diminishing off-white head. Tastes and smell of apple cores, refined sugar, Belgian and American yeasts, cranberry sauce, and sweet malts. Refreshingly tart. Thought itd be stickier altogether: shows how much I know.

2005(?) Vintage

6/21/2010: New Glarus Apple Ale... Aroma: Wow, really unexpected, but good aroma of aged apple cider with hints of subtle spices and caramel; strong. Appearance: Cloudy honey color; thin, churning veil of off-white to beige-colored bubbles; lots of tiny carbonation bubbles exploding in all directions, churning their way to the top. Flavor: Quite sweet! Sugary apple, but the apple doesnt jump right out, it is more reserved with more sugary caramel coming through as well as some gentle spice, clover honey, and vanilla; more and more honey and creamy vanilla as the beer warms, also some cream sherry. Palate: Medium; slightly creamy, but slightly spritzer-like at the same time; soft. Overall: This beer has definitely changed over its life in the bottle, but it is surprisingly good and quite enjoyable!

12 fl. oz. bottle. Rating: 7/3/7/4/15 = 3.6

2008 Vintage

6/21/2010: New Glarus Unplugged Apple Ale... Aroma: Apple juice. Appearance: Hazy golden color with a tinge of shiny copper; initial head of beige foam that dissipates to leave a thin veil with a ring around the edge; good level of rapid carbonation. Flavor: Light apple, slightly dull and dusty at times; sweeter in the middle through the finish; a small dollup of clover honey and vanilla caramel in the finish; floral undertones. Palate: Medium; airy and light mouthfeel. Overall: Very different characteristics as the older bottle, but still nearly as good; the apple doesnt overwhelm and therefore this comes across as BEER with some apple characteristics, not just like an apple cider; quite refreshing and easy to drink.

12 fl. oz. bottle. Rating: 7/4/7/3/14 = 3.5

Pours a fairly clear light orange color. Big green apple aroma with light vinegar note. Big apple flavor, like fresh squeezed apple juice. Big carbonation and juicy.

Bottle pour dark golden to copper. Nose pale cider and sweet malt. Taste all apple cider. Nice mix of tart and sweet, but fairly one dimensional.
