Had this at the Orlando Gaylord, pool side, in a can poured into a plastic cup.
Okay, first off, I don't think this is in any way an Ale. It's way more like a hard cider and that's how I'm going to review it.
A: clear golden colored body leaving a half finger white fizzy head that rapidly died. Lots of fast rising bubbles were seen.
S: apple cider with faint caramel in the background.
T: extremely sweet with apple cider and caramel dominating.
M: light with some harshness on the tongue. It was somewhat smooth as it warmed. It was very sessionable, leaving a sweet dry aftertaste and finish.
Ice cold on a hot day this can work but otherwise I'm staying away.
Serving type: can

I'm going to go against the grain here and say that I like Redd's Apple Ale. If you take it for what it is, and you like drinks that taste of apple, it's good stuff.
I've seen people try this and immediately make the "eww" face, and pour it out. But I think a lot of that is because of what Redd's isn't. It isn't a beer. And it isn't a cider. If you drink it thinking it's going to be either of those, you're going to be in for a shock. It's the same thing as if someone puts Pepsi in your coffee cup and you drank it thinking it was coffee. (Try this some time, people will freak out) When we don't get what we expect, our minds and taste buds get confused, and we don't like it. Try it not expecting it to be or comparing it to a beer, and you might see it differently.
That said, there is definitely room for improvement. It would be better with a bit more flavor.

looks as far as anything beer goes is weak. virtually no head, or at least none that lasted past the 20 sec mark, and zero lacing or any remnants of beer-ness after the pour.
Flavor and aroma are about like water with pressurized carbonation and apple flavoring. It's hard to think of any of the usual beer adjectives which would accurately describe this beer.
My overall opinion of this one ain't high. Wondering why it's included on the site, because it's more of a malternative than a beer.
