Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Goin' for my third apple ale, the second with the focus being more on the apples than the malts (ostensibly...I mean, who know how far they went with "flavoring", right?). This stuff pours a clear pale amber topped by a a half-finger of short-lived lightly off-white foam. The nose is a blast of watered-down apple juice, with a vein of mild caramel in the distance. The taste pretty much brings more of the same, but with an increased sense of blandness. Honestly, I expected a cider-like quality of apple with some spices or something, but this takes the spice-less path and them some. To sum: watered-down apple juice that wasn't all that great to begin with. The body is a light medium, with a very light moderate carbonation and a feel I can only describe as sorta/kinda creamy. Overall, I just didn't get this beer. It certainly eschews the cider route, but it also goes away from the apple-y beer route as well, coming across as, like I've said before, a watered-down version of apple juice. Not my thing, this.

I do not recommend this "ale" as mentioned by many others, this is not a beer. It seems like a product that is really intended for underaged conumers that hides the alcohol to help kids get drunk. I saw it and thought I would give it a chance, frankly it was a waste of $1.75 because I purchased only a single 16 ounce can. I feel this would be something you buy for a girl who likes it to get her drunk and increase your chances of getting lucky with her.

Gross. Flat sour applejuiceish (apple juice is better) taste. Not very good.tasted like rotten apples. Not something I'd choose or even drink if it was offered to me. If you like flat gross Apple juice and don't know the difference between GOOD craft beers ( stone, flying dog, Avery, or any other craft beer) dont buy.

Sampled right now on 4/7/14 but had in in the past a few times. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in a "REDD"S APPLE ALE" pilsner glass that I bought at the local Salvation Army store today for 29 cents. Brand new also! :)

Pours a golden yellow with NO head and no lacing either. Lots of tiny streaming bubbles are seen rising from the bottom. Looks like a glass of carbonated apple juice. The aroma is of apples of course with a hint of grain. The taste is about the same with a good crisp apple taste with a hint of beer. Goes down easy and very drinkable anytime of the year. I like this one as well as their 'Strawberry Ale'.

I have to say, I was surprised. I bought this thinking I was gonna get a strong ale beer with little apple taste. This holds true to it's name, and I can taste the apple like it's fresh from the grove. It has no (Zero) beer taste at all. I do like reg beer but I also like carbonated wines. And that's what I feel like I am drinking is a carbonated wine with a kick. Over all, I love this. And will buy it again. The look and color is very light. And I think that's why I bought it. I don't care for strong dark beers or ales. At 5% alcohol it will only take two to get that happy fussy feeling we all love. Good job Redds!
