Appearance: Clear, golden yellow color with a thin cap of head that fades quickly to a ring.

Aroma: Apples, cinnamon and clove; basically apple pie.

Taste: Crisp and tart up front, very cider-like. The spices shows up more on the back end leading to a fast and clean finish.

The Rest: Not bad, basically a spiced cider. I could see drinking a few on a nice, fall day.

Serving type: bottle

It has the consistency of club soda and the stuff is fizzy. It has the taste of club soda with a few crumbs of apple pie. Overall, it comes across with a weaker apple but stronger cinnamon taste. It is hard to fathom why this ale was produced. Personally, I would rather have a nice slice of home made apple pie for dessert and wash it down with a European style pilsner.
