It's a cool idea. There are some great ciders out there, and everyone knows about cider. An apple beverage that's a beer seems like a good idea, and few breweries make one.
Well...it looks like a macro from the start. It's a very pale, thin-looking brew. Granted, it looks a bit like a cider ought to look, but not like a beer ought to. The struggling little white head barely stays up for a minute or two, and very little spotty lacing is left behind.
The aroma is a bit cidery but as thin and as the appearance would make it seem and somewhat listless. I don't see too much difference between this and a cider until a whiff of corn husk comes through. Adjuncts don't make it better, and the same goes for the flavor. While the apple element presented is sharp, it loses the tartness in the flavor. there's a bit more tangy bite on the nose. Pale malts present themselves from middle to finish; again, thin.
Speaking of, the feel is that of a cider rather than a beer, and it's only the fact that this is an apple ale that the fact doesn't completely sink it.
I was interested to try this beer and wasn't surprised to discover it was Miller after I'd had it poured for me. For the masses into bland, weak and watery beers, this works if cider's too much.

I love Redd's. I hate the calories. THEY need to make REDD'S Light with about half the calories and the same flavor and taste. THEN they will have a true WINNER!!! I would also consider getting it in more places. Like Cruise ships and ball games. THE price is a bit too much as well. Be more along the lines of the rest of the beers. THE cider prices are out of line. They would make it up in volume.
