As far as apple ales, this one is one is on par with wood chuck.... I would definitely not recommend redd's to anyone. There are other apple ales such as angry orchard and magners, that blow this watered down version away. Real shocker it comes from miller brewing.... Anyone who gave this 5/5 is drunk.

Decent is all I have to say about this. It has good flavor but is hardly a beer. I pours very pale in color and is headless. The flavor however has pretty enjoyable however it contained little to no qualities of beer. It is a nice beer for maybe a cook out or something like that but I would not buy it again.

way worse than the honeycrisp from shock top, this is at least a step below, hardly beer. pours an headless pale straw color with soda bubbles popping. it smells like fake red apple, sweet and syrupy, very little grain or hops in this, if any at all. the flavor starts for just a second with some decent fresh apple, but its quickly overcome by an onslaught of sugar thats too much for me. im missing the essential beer elements again, and it feels more like a low budget apple juice with heaps of carbonation than beer. finish is all sugar, turns the stomach. the flavors are good but the sweetness is through the roof, rendering this undrinkable. apple definitely has a place in beer, and this new trend has me thinking and inspired, but this is a far cry from well made beer, its a soda pop. hopefully i wont encounter this one again but given its witty add campaign and instant popularity, thats not looking particularly likely.

You'd be hard pressed to actually categorize this beer as beer. Based on nearly every quality about this apple ale, it should more likely be grouped with Mike's Hard and the like. Upon tasting, flavors had almost no complexity or bitterness. It is very sweet. I would call Redd's a hard cider, or maybe even a hard apple juice.
