Keg at the brewpub, Beaverton, 11/11/14. Clear golden with moderate off white spotting. Nose is apple jus, sweet, orchard wood. Taste is pale malt, apple orchard, light vanilla, straw. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet apple pulp in the close. Meh!

On tap at OMP. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head. A light fruity apple nose. Light seemingly fake green apple, sweet malts. Not good.

Unfortunately uses extract instead of actual apples, but still alright. Too candy like but an interesting combination nonetheless.

On tap at the Old Market Portland OR. Pours out clear gold topped with a small head. A nice sour apple aroma on this one. Tast off apples not bad.

{Tap - Old Market Pub] Off yellow with a light head. The aromja was light as a light beer would beer. The apple flavor was very light and almost like I have seen jolly rancher type. It was Ok as fruit beers go.

This has a bit of toffee and sour apple jolly rancher flavor, with just a bit of caramel covered apple fruitiness, almost vinous and ciderish at times. Not very tasty or easy to drink.

On tap at the Old Market. This was an interesting brew, but the thing I don’t like about Old Market’s fruit beers is the artificial/candy sweetening taste that they get. This brew had an apple taste that only really reminded me of apple jollyrancher, I wish they would use real fruit instead of whatever artificial stuff they use. Overly sweet and candy taste leaves this brew tasting like one of those sweet green apple icicle pops.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2004
This is pretty much a cider. Not sure why they call it a beer. Yellow color with immediate sweetness and a dominant sour apple taste. Too sweet. Like one of those sour apple pops.
