Tasting at PapsøTheydon_Bois (21499) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2015
Deep blond color. Sweet aroma, it reminds me the perry artificial drinks from Carlsberg, in Sweden. Sweetish apple juice, with a deviation in an unpleasant direction. Mix of beer and cider? No good.
Bottle split on the hotel patio, SD, big thanks to GT2 for gifting me this number 14/11/14.
Rich amber/chestnut brown with a light beige covering.
Nose is big on apple pulp, straw, light caramel, woody must, more apple juice.
Taste comprises sweet apple juice, light pear and prune backnotes, caramelised brown sugar, sweet licks.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet licks in the close.
Ok for style but a little too sweet for me overall - full on apple orchard attack! mcberko (19871) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2012
12 oz. bottle, sent from FullObs (thanks Brett), pours a hazy copper / bronze with a small white head. Aroma of green apples that pretty much dominate, with a bit of candied sugar sweetness. Flavour reminds me more of an apple cider, with fresh green apples and a bit of sweetness - well-balanced. No hint of the wheat or brown ale qualities. Solid flavour profile for being < 4%, but the whole thing feels a bit whimsical, especially compared to Raspberry Tart and Wisconsin Red. Nevertheless, solid refreshing light fruit beer.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2009 Light amber with some rather large bubbles for a craft beer. It smells overwhelmingly appley, in a candyish way, and without nuance. Sweet, appley, candyish, again without nuance. The malt lends body, and a sweetness in the finish that keeps it from being too much like a cider. But this is far too simple a beer for my tastes. rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle, thanks to tkrjukoff. Pale orange color, small white head. Apple aroma, syrupy, kinda sweet. Apple flavor, syrup, ginger and cinnamon notes, a little vinous.

Clear amber color, small white head. Strong green apple juice aroma. Medium-bodied. Apple juice, light tartness, not overly sweet (no sugar added?). Nice cider/apple juice, nothing to do with beer :)
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2011 Bottle thanks to arminjewell. Pours apple juice color. Nose of freshly picked apples, cinnamon, brown sugar and caramel. Taste of fresh apple, cinnamon, brown sugar and light caramel malts. Light hop presence also. Very delicious beer. Solid and extremely sessionable. yngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle, 12oz, shared by Bergstaden. 2015 edition. An unclear, copper colored beer with a small, off-white head. Lots of apples in the initial aroma, then mashed apples tending towards diacetyl and vanilla. Candy, white sugar. It’s smooth, soft and medium bodied, with flavors of mashed apples, candied apples and some vanilla. Long mashed apples finish. Pleasant indeed, perhaps with an apple cake of some kind. 7-3-7-3-14-3.4Benzai (16928) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2012
Bottle, 12oz, shared by Bergstaden. 2016 edition. Clearer than the 2015 edition, and a bit lighter in color. More mellow aroma and flavor than 2015, much less apple. Smooth and medium to full-bodied, with a mellow carbonation. Sure prefer the 2015 edition, but it’s a decent beer anyway. 6-3-6-3-12-3. 170311
355ml bottle @ ZZT III, courtesy of Martinus. Clear orange-golden color, small white head that disappears quickly. Smells fruity, a lot of apple indeed. Taste apple, sweetness, cinnamon and some hints of wood. Lightly sticky texture, low body, low carbo. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 9, 2010
A: The pour is a clear amber color with minimal head formation that eventually turns into a thin layer of off-white foam.
S: Apple pie all the way on the nose. Sweet apples, notes of cinnamon, that sort of sugary pie filling glaze, and even some pie crust. A hint of cider, too.
T: The flavor isn’t quite as nice as the nose, unfortunately. Sweet apples, a light butter flavor, bread/pie crust (especially on the finish), and more cider flavors.
M: The body is medium with a sort of soft carbonation.
D: Sort of like a more complex sparkling cider (non-alcoholic), plenty of sweetness and apple flavor. I’d like to try this one fresher, but still good as it is.
