22 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 9/14/2017. Pours slightly hazy deep orange amber/light copper color with a 1-2 finger foamy off white head with poor retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Minimal spotty lacing on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the lace cap. Good appearance. Aromas of slightly tart red/green apples, fruit skin, caramel, brown sugar, pie crust, toasted biscuit, nutmeg, cinnamon, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, apple pies, and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of slightly tart red/green apples, fruit skin, caramel, brown sugar, pie crust, toasted biscuit, nutmeg, cinnamon, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/spice bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of red/green apples, fruit skin, caramel, brown sugar, pie crust, toasted biscuit, nutmeg, cinnamon, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt, apple pies, and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitter/spice balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Minimal dryness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.5%. Overall this is a very nice fruit/spiced American amber ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt, apple pies, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, easy, and pretty refreshing to drink. Very classic tasting American amber ale flavors, with nice presence of real apple pies, and just enough hops to balance the sweetness. A very pleasant and enjoyable offering; and spot on style example.

Great light bodied American Beer. Tastes and smells just like American apple pie

Not bad, but certainly not great. It was difficult to taste to apple. I expected more of a cinnamon aftertaste. The aroma was a fooler, as it really had that "Grandma’s apple pie aroma." It sounded much better than it tasted. It was a disappointment.

SpongeRuiner (1114) - Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Had on tap at Ashleys. The pour is a darker red color. A slight apple spice and cinnamon aroma. Not a whole lot of taste. Some apple cinnamon flavors mixed with a strong carbonation. Very fizzy. I was hoping for more distinct apple flavors or more pie characteristic. Overall somewhat bland and mild.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2014 Tap: Clear, golden amber with a foamy, frothy ecru cap perched up on top. Aroma is very light; mild apple juice with notes of some generic apple spice... Perhaps cinnamon & nutmeg, but rather faint overall. Taste is equally mild in execution, feels kind of thin on the palate. Some apple juice & apple butter-y sweetness that leadings into a light glazing of spice in the back-end, again, mostly leaning towards cinnamon or maybe nutmeg. Hint of brown sugar; the spice in the end comes with a touch of astringent sharpness, finishing rather dry. A decent apple ale at best. Unfortunately New Glarus has ruined the way I judge other apple ales (or fruit beers in general, even).

Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - FEB 12, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists of apple, caramel, and some faint spice (could be cinnamon, but hard to really tell). It’s a mostly transparent golden-orange with a one finger off-white head that eventually settled to thing film. There is a good amount of sticky webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of light-moderate apple. There is some light caramel in the background. The finish builds with a little more apple, light cinnamon/spice, faint alcohol (only 6.5 abv?), and a hint of graham cracker. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall, it’s got apple, some light cinnamon, and even a touch of graham cracker, but I can’t say it reminds me of apple pie (if that’s what they were aiming for).
