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.

Light amber colour with a small head. Aroma is apples, some citrus and pears. Flavour was sweet without the sourness of apples I was hoping for. Good beer but nowhere near as good as their Raspberry Tarte.

This bottled brew from J. Squire poured a medium sized head of fine to medium sized off-white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a poor lacing and a carbonated transparent brown colored body. It had a malty fruity aroma, but I could not place the apples it int. It had a tingly mouth feel that mellowed in the finish with a apple flavored aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of cinnamon and spice. After a while, the red apple flavor begins to come out as it warms up to play with your senses.

Amber color, light head. Nose of mild apples & malts, sweet flavor, too extractive.

I guess I like fruit beers and wont admit it. If you ask me, Id say I dont like them, but when the fruit beers are as good as New Glarus, my ratings wont reflect that. Thanks to MrFacto who sent me this and to TheBeerCellar2 for another one! This has a large creamy head of off-white that rides on a pectin hazed copper brew. Light malt and apple aroma. Well balanced brew that starts with sweet caramel malt on the tongue and then changes over to a fruity apple tartness. Like the combination you get with a caramel dipped apple. The palate is full and creamy yet light and lively as well. A different and enjoyable brew.

Apple aroma and cidery in the flavour. Not a cider yet very appely for a beer. New Glarus never ceases to amaze me.

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!

TAR (2708) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Light copper. Noisily-dwindling ring of foam. Peculiar aroma of plastic, pressed apples, yarn, toasty malts, and dirty/buttery yeast. Seltzery effervescence. Heavily airy. Sharp and stinging with prevalent yeast notes casting phenolic and bubblegum esters on the palate. Dab of caramel offsets the quickly vanishing fresh apple tartness. Virtually nonexistent center shows mushy, overripe apples and a putrid yeast character, which prevalently flaws the brew. Cloying, increasingly sharp finish shows a jumbled mess of overripe apple acidity and leafy dryness. Whether or not this is trying to be a fashionable fruit beer or a true cider, it fails miserably at both. Please re-retire this, New Glarus, or at least replace this foul yeast with something interesting or "wild" next time.

a murky brown color w/ a thin white head and lots of carb bubbles on the glass head dissapates quickly. scent of spiced apple pie and sweet kiddie apple juice, a very sweet aroma. THe palate is clean medium bodied, but nothing amazinly special. Flavor was a sweet apple and cinnamon taste.. but not over the top sweet as I expected. Overall a good fruity beer.

Dark amber color. Large white foamy head. Aroma is apple juice, cinnamon and brown sugar. Medium bodied fruit beer. Malts are very sweet. Lots of caramel and brown sugar. Loads of apple flavors tart, crisp and sweet. Very sweet, yet not cloying. Despite all the apple flavors here, there are distinct beer flavors here as well. Sort of brown ale like. Interesting beer. As with every New Glarus beer Ive tasted they are all well-balanced and very smooth tasting. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.
